THE PU­N­ISHER

Total Film - - Comic Book Preview -

So un­bend­ingly bru­tal was Jon Bern­thal as Frank Cas­tle, aka vig­i­lante The Pu­n­isher in Sea­son 2 of Dare­devil, Net­flix has given him his own spin-off show. It will be an ori­gin story – a clip shown at Comic-Con sees Frank play­ing the guitar with his daugh­ter, and then tak­ing out bik­ers and drug lords as he goes on the warpath when his fam­ily is taken from him. “He’s driven by rage and is on a sin­gu­lar mis­sion to find these peo­ple, and do it as bru­tally as pos­si­ble,” says Bern­thal, who claims the se­ries is the per­fect mar­riage of un­flinch­ing ac­tion and heart­felt story. “The way in which he fights tells you vol­umes about the char­ac­ter. There’s a story with each and ev­ery punch.”
