Daredevil Season 2 will soon premiere. Everyone who is working on this Marvel TV series is pretty hyped up. The writers and the stars can?t contain their excitement as they all share their thoughts, particularly on the clash between Matt Murdock and The Punisher.
Indiwire shares that Season 2 will be darker and grittier. Fans can look forward to the new addition of characters, namely Frank Castle (to be played by Jon Bernthal) and Elektra (to be played by Elodie Yung).
Actress Deborah Ann Woll, who plays the role of Karen Page, believes that The Punisher coming in as an antagonist with ?an appealing argument,? while Amy Ruthberg who plays Marci Stahl has expressed her obvious excitement. As for showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie, they feel that the addition of Frank came as a natural choice. Petrie was quoted saying that Matt will surely go through a lot more bleeding and continuously ?broken-down body.? The name The Punisher is surely fitting for Daredevil?s fight against crime but he will realize that he is not different from Castle whose aim to clean up the streets of bad elements is essentially the same. The only difference is how they go about doing so. We see how lines are clearly drawn between Matt?s moral convictions in ending a life while Castle?s is completely opposite.
The Vine Report adds that Jon Bernthal?s portrayal for Frank Castle?s ?The Punisher? for the upcoming Season 2 on Daredevil is of great importance, most especially for those in the military and law enforcement.
The addition of ?The Punisher? as an ally and at the same time antagonist for Daredevil is a role that he couldn?t have played well if he wasn?t a father and a husband. Bernthal is quoted in saying that ?until you truly understand what it means to love something more than yourself, and happily give your life for something else in this world, you can?t come close to beginning to understand what it might be like to lose that love.? Marco Ramirez says that he and his team or writers tried to be very sensitive in keeping up with The Punisher?s character.
