Jon Bernthal‘s performance as a tortured Frank Castle was one of the highlights of Netflix’s Defenders-verse. Over 1 season of Daredevil and 2 seasons of The Punisher, Berthanl brought the controversial character to life and now fans will get more as he’s set to return as the character in Daredevil: Born Again.
Bernthal joins stars Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onoforio as talent that has made the jump from the popular Netflix series to the MCU. Marvel Studios has given no indication that Daredevil: Born Again will pick up where the Netflix series left off and Cox has continuously referred to the new series as “a whole new deal.” Whatever the case, it would seem that Bernthal’s interpretation of the character may have to change a bit to fit the more family-friendly tone of Marvel Studios Disney Plus series.
Daredevil: Born Again, an 18-eisode series, is in production now and slated for release sometime in 2024.
