When Jon Bernthal first appeared as Frank Castle on Daredevil Season 2, I knew there was something special in his ability to bring the character to life. Netflix must have seen the numbers and the online chatter about the character, because the streaming network has ordered a spin-off series featuring Bernthal as The Punisher.
