Season one of Daredevil was a big hit for Netflix, so in season two they're bringing out the big guns. Literally.
After three cinematic attempts, Marvel's gun-toting vigilante The Punisher will be hitting the small screen instead — and he's going to be hot!

The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal — wonderful but mostly wasted as the short-lived Shane — has signed on to play the fan favorite!
Frank Castle, a former Marine whose family was killed by the mob, will be setting up shop in Hell's Kitchen. And unlike Matt Murdock, he doesn't have a moral code against killing.
In the comics, he's one of the biggest horn-headaches Daredevil has. But we'll have to wait until 2016 to see how big a part he'll play in season two!
