Season two of Daredevil started filming last month in New York and brought set photos of Charlie Cox and Elden Henson back on the street. A few days later, The Punisher himself, Jon Bernthal, was spotted for the first time working on the show.
Marvel and Netflix have done a decent job hiding the rest of the cast from the paparazzi, but Bernthal has been unable to stay hidden. We saw him taking on an armed civilian just over a week ago, and he has now returned with more gear, scars, and enemies.
The photos aren’t too revealing as to what the Punisher is up to, but it is nice to see him gain some protective gear as the threats he faces get bigger. Hopefully his costume has a continual evolution over the course of the season where he gains his classic comic costume near the end.
One interesting observation is the sweat pattern on his shirt, and while it could certainly be nothing, it also slightly resembles the eyes and nose of a skull, the symbol of the Punisher. What do you think of the comparison?
Season two of Daredevil is currently filming and is expected to hit Netflix in April of 2016.
