NYCC 2016: Marvel's The Punisher Netflix Series Casting Announcements

Posted by The Dace Man Thursday, October 6, 2016
What's up Dacetacular Nation? Do you smell it? It's that time of year again! New York Comic Con is here and as always some of the hottest news breaks on the Internet the same day Comic Con kicks off!

Latest Rumors and news about The Punisher

If you're a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you're part of the majority, and if not…what the hell is wrong with you? News broke earlier this week as well as today on Marvel's Punisher series coming to Netflix.

The first bit of news was blatantly obvious if you're trolling around New York: production began on the series. There have been several photos snapped of leading man Jon Berenthal as well as the familiar face of Deborah Ann Woll reprising her role as Karen Page from Daredevil.

The second bit of news released today was the addition of three other actors just signed to the series. Ben Barnes of The Chronicles of Narnia fame was cast as Billy Russo, Frank's best friend from the Special Forces who runs the successful military corporation Anvil.

Another addition was Ebon Moss-Bachrach from the show Girls who formerly worked for the NSA and has some information valuable to Mr. Castle. Lastly, they added Amber Rose Revah (Indian Summers, Son of God) who appears to be the female lead and a possible love interest for Frank.

So there you have it—the first chunk of news from the Marvel camp coming out of the largest convention on the East Coast, New York Comic Con 2016.

Remember, keyboard warriors: leave your feedback! What do you think of this casting news? Will Ben Barnes go full-on Jigsaw in this season or will that be saved for later? What other characters do you hope make an appearance on the show?

Until the next time, for the few, the proud, and, of course, the Dacetacular, grab a beer—and in this case, your punishment—and check out what's going on here in the Dace-Sphere at Fanboys Anonymous. See ya next time!
