While the fate of Netflix series, The Punisher, remains to be seen, the official January 18 premiere date is already set in stone as is the riveting performance now etched in Marvel history by title actor Jon Bernthal.
With this, expect new characters to enter the fray and build Frank Castle’s violent, grim, semi-hinged and layered world of confliction between right and wrong. Marvel is announcing three new additions to the cast in order to build this world along with recent set miscellaneous photos accomodating Bernthal with the return of Daredevil series co-star, actress Deborah Ann Woll unveiled via Twitter this week which you can view at the very bottom.
On its face, watching actor Jeff Bridges wax medieval with a British accent doesn’t sit well with me, even in the latest trailer for the long-awaited release of Nomad (2005) and Mongol (2007) helmer Sergei Bodrov‘s forthcoming fantasy actioner, Seventh Son. However, considering the epic series of set backs that followed with Academy Award-winning VFX house Rhythm And Hues Studios filed for bankruptcy during post production and Legendary Pictures landing the film at Universal Pictures for distribution after parting ways with Warner Bros., I’d say the actor’s methods are the least of my worries, lest I judge the film too soon.
