When Netflix released the first season of Dare Devil it took the comic book industry by storm. Nobody saw a show of that quality coming from Netflix. It was dark, gritty, close to the source material and directed in an amazing way. It was one of the first live action comic adaptations that’s not been aimed directly at a younger audience since maybe the Blade movies.
Saying that I’m a big fan of the Punisher movie, even the Dolph Lundgren one where he rode his bike through the sewers. But when Jon Bernthal was first cast to play Frank Castle I sighed a little. He was great as Shane in Walking Dead but I couldn’t see him as a viable Punisher.
Then I saw this trailer from for Season 2 of Daredevil and wow. He’s got that dangerous strategic persona, super human like instinct and some amazing dialogue with Daredevil.
