New Photo From Marvel's THE PUNISHER Features Frank Castle as a U.S. Marine
Empire has released a new photo from Marvel’s upcoming series The Punisher. It gives us a look at Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) as a U.S. Marine in a time prior to him becoming the vengeful vigilante. What we are seeing here is a glimpse of a flashback scene in which we will learn more about Frank's past and the traumatic events that helped to shape his turn into The Punisher.
When talking about the killing spree that Frank Castle will go on in the solo series, Bernthal explains:
“It’s the only thing that silences the demons, temporarily. There’s going to be an attempt to move beyond the Punisher, but that’s something he can’t shake. There’s part of me that’s hungry to get back into the darkness, that’s excited to see it fall apart.”
As a fan of The Punisher, I'm more excited about this series than any of the other Marvel Netflix series. I can't wait to see this character's story unfold as he embarks on his rampage of revenge.
Bernthal is joined by Ben Barnes as Billy Russo a.k.a. Jigsaw, who is Castle’s best friend from his days in the Special Forces. He runs a successful private military corporation called “Anvil”. The series also stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Micro, a former NSA analyst whose secrets may be of great value to Frank Castle and everyone around them; and Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, a highly-trained sophisticated Homeland Security agent who is vexed by the Punisher.
Also in the cast are Daniel Webber as Lewis Walcott, a young veteran who has had a difficult time re-assimilating into Civilian Society; Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle, a friend of Frank Castle’s and one of the few people who knows he is alive; Paul Schulze as Rawlins, a high-ranking member of the CIA whose operations in Afghanistan intersect with Frank Castle; Jaime Ray Newman plays Sarah Lieberman, Micro’s wife whose marriage has made her life far more complicated; and Michael Nathanson as Sam Stein, a Homeland agent who is challenged by his partnership with Dinah (Amber RoseRevah).
The Punisher is set to premiere sometime later this year in 2017. To catch up on all things Punisher, click here!
