Production has been under way on Season 2 of Marvel's Daredevil since early July, and we've already gotten our first official look at Jon Bernthal as The Punisher. With shooting still happening in New York, Jon Bernthal shared a new photo from the set on his Twitter page earlier today, which reveals part of his massive arsenal of weaponry. As you can see in the image below, Frank Castle is well-equipped to defend himself in the new season of this Netflix series.
Back in May 2013, Marvel won back the rights to The Punisher franchise, along with Ghost Rider and Blade. While Frank Castle is set to appear on Daredevil Season 2, a rumor surfaced in June that claims Netflix is developing new TV shows for Blade, Ghost Rider and Punisher, so we may be seeing a lot more of Frank Castle after his run on Marvel's Daredevil. Then again, that report was never confirmed, so we'll have to wait and see.Read More
Production is currently under way on Season 2 of Netflix's Marvel's Daredevil, with shooting taking place in New York City. Over the weekend, Just Jared released photos from the set that showcases Jon Bernthal as Punisher, engaging with an unknown actor in a brutal street fight. These photos come just a few weeks after the first set photos arrived featuring the new character.

Marvel's Daredevil stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson and Rosario Dawson. Elodie Yung also joins the cast this season as the beloved comic book character Elektra.Read More
Of course, it hasn't been confirmed if any of these comic stories will be implemented in Marvel's Daredevil yet, since it isn't known when production will begin on the new season. We reported last week that Daredevil Season 2 showrunner Marco Ramirez has described the season as "Daredevil vs. The Punisher," with Punisher called "a serial killer who targets criminals." The Punisher won't exactly be the villain of the season, but it seems that these two crime-fighters may be targeting the same people. While we wait for more details about the season on Netflix, check out the actor's new photos with his comics below.

Director David Ayer apparently isn't too affected by the lack of having a Rick Flagg locked in for his big screen comic book adaptation Suicide Squad. While he hasn't provided an update on the actor search, he has decided to give us all a slight little tease, showing off his workspace, where he is in the middle of drafting the script and creating storyboards. It's impossible to read any of the words, or even make out the lone figure who we see depicted here, but it's cool to see this side of the production nonetheless.
David Ayer is writing the script himself, based on the popular DC Comic about a group of super villains who go on a secret mission to clear their name. It was his latest drafted that reportedly caused Tom Hardy to step away from the project. If we're to believe the rumors swirling around the production, Hardy felt his character, Rick Flagg, was being pushed to the side to give Deadshot (Will Smith) and The Joker (Jared Leto) more screen time. Shortly after he left, it was announced that DC and Warner Bros. were pursuing Jake Gyllenhaal for the role. He turned them down. The last two names mentioned are Joel Edgerton and Jon Bernthal, two great actors who don't have the same marquee value as Tom Hardy and might be more open to a secondary role.Read More
With Suicide Squad set to start shooting before summer, Warner Bros. and DC are scrambling to find a replacement for Tom Hardy, who dropped out of the project citing a scheduling conflict. While the studio was keen on having Jake Gyllenhaal replace him, it has since been reported that Gyllenhaal passed on the role of Rick Flagg. Now, a new rumor indicates that both Joel Edgerton and Jon Bernthal are being eyed for the role. A second report indicates that Gary Sinise has joined the movie as General Eiling, but that has not been officially confirmed. And a third report claims that Joe Manganiello is being targeted to play Deathstroke.
Jon Bernthal had been rumored for the role of Rick Flagg before Warner Bros. officially announced that Tom Hardy had won the part late last year. Having Bernthal join the movie makes sense, as he previously co-starred in director David Ayer's last project Fury, and the actor certainly fits the character's description.Read More
