Marvel’s Daredevil was the first of Marvel’s planned four shows to stream on Netflix and was a roaring success with both comic book fans and critics. Season 2 is in the works and now it’s been announced that Jon Bernthal is joining the cast as Frank Castle (aka The Punisher).

Bernthal is perhaps best known for playing Shane Walsh in the first two seasons of The Walking Dead, but since then he’s also shown up in Fury and The Wolf of Wall Street. The Punisher has already been played by three different actors in three different movies (Dolph Lundgren in 1989’s The Punisher, Thomas Jane in 2004’s The Punisher, and Ray Stevenson in 2008’s Punisher: War Zone, none of which were well received by critics or did well at the box office). The Punisher is a violent vigilante driven by the death of his wife and two children who were caught in the crossfire of a mob shootout.

“Jon Bernthal brings an unmatched intensity to every role he takes on, with a potent blend of power, motivation and vulnerability that will connect with audiences,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television in a statement. “Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”
