    The only casting announced so far, aside from Bernthal, is British actor Ben Barnes. Michael Ausiello has said that the rumour is that Barnes will play the villain, Bobby Saint. Now, the Saints were in the Tom Jane Punisher film as antagonists, but it's my understanding that they were created for that film as original characters. Seems a bit odd to re-use them for this, no?

    Oh yeah, this section is finally here. Thanks SuperHeroHype.
    I love that movie, so I have no problem with a homage to it.

    Now that a majority of his back stories been unravelled in season 2 of Daredevil i believe that it's high time this upcoming series goes all gung-ho with bullets and guns, with tons of action packed goodness.

    I feel the same way Jokes, def glad they don't need to do the whole origin story thing with him since that was done in DD season 2. This series just needs to be balls to the wall Punisher and brutal justice. I know they started filming so I'm assuming this is going to come out before the Defenders mini and I wonder if Frank is going to have some kind of role in that or will he be going into his own adventures in the MCU away from the whole NYC thing the 4 Defenders have going on.

    He might have an incidental role with the defenders.

    While I enjoyed Luke Cage, it mostly just made me salivate at the thought of a Punisher series... I want to see a character that does not hold back.

    Finally!
    A punisher forum.
    :unishr::pun::unishr:
    Huh
    I was almost certain that the long hair and beard was going to be in a flashback to before he became The Punisher.
    Karen being there kind destroys that theory though I guess. :funny:
    I like it, but I hope he doesn't look like that for the entire season.

    I'd imagine we'll definitely hear something, no idea what though. Even if it's just Bernthal confirming they're filming or something lol

    Nice, the Punisher forum! Anyone know when the series will be released? I know there isn't a confirmed date, but how long did it take Daredevil or Luke Cage, from when people saw the first set photos to their respective release dates?

    Not sure. Iron Fist started filming in April and will come out in March of next year though. So probably about a year.

    Finally a Punisher subforum.

    Now we just need to wait for Legion, Powerless and Cloak and Dagger to get one. :woot:

    Logical.
    Wonder how she will get over her disdain of Frank killing his former commander against her constant protest.

    Bearded Frank from Greg Rucka's run was awesome, so I'm glad to see it here (I'm assuming that it's a reference to that as well).

    Frank and Karen's dynamic was really interesting in DD, so I'm glad to see her pop up here as well.

    Welcome back Frank!

    You can tell these Netflix Marvel shows are gritty because all the male heroes have unkempt facial hair at some point :funny:

    I wonder if Claire Temple will pop up again?

    D.A assistant Blake Tower may make an appearance again I suppose.

    Another Kingpin guest appearance would be great.

    More street thugs using Hammer guns.
