Is the Punisher Returning to the MCU? 1 ‘Daredevil’ Star Leaks Shocking Details

<p>Since Netflix canceled their <a href="https://ift.tt/BwYRmtq> shows, fans have been campaigning for Marvel Studios to revive them. And in 2021, the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally granted their wish when Charlie Cox appeared in <a href="https://ift.tt/Yh8otZL No Way Home</em> as Matt Murdock/Daredevil</a>. Now, the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen is set to appear in multiple MCU projects. And according to one star, the Punisher will soon join Daredevil in the MCU.</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-custom-image-1200"><img loading="lazy" width="3000" height="2000" src="https://ift.tt/khM05TZ" alt="Jon Bernthal, who played the Punisher in the MCU, wears a black suit over a white button-up shirt and black and white striped tie." class="wp-image-3122267" srcset="https://ift.tt/dtzkPlX 3000w, https://ift.tt/0Ox7qhL 150w, https://ift.tt/7thKAl6 640w, https://ift.tt/WuF3fCV 768w, https://ift.tt/7bVLusE 1024w, https://ift.tt/748wYtZ 1536w, https://ift.tt/Uu3VgkG 2048w, https://ift.tt/sghutTH 1200w, https://ift.tt/YG3Fw0d 90w" sizes="(max-width: 3000px) 100vw, 3000px" /><figcaption>Jon Bernthal | Photo by Monica Schipper/FilmMagic</figcaption></figure> <h2 id="h-netflix-canceled-the-punisher-in-2019">Netflix canceled ‘The Punisher’ in 2019</h2> <p>Netflix went on a killing spree in late 2018/early 2019, and its victims were their MCU shows, including <em>The Punisher</em>.</p> <p>Jon Bernthal first appeared as Frank Castle/Punisher in <em>Daredevil</em> Season 2, and he later starred in a spinoff centered around his character. <em>The Punisher</em> received mixed reviews from critics, but audiences were big fans of the show’s gruesome nature and complex characters. </p> <p>Sadly, after two seasons, the streaming service canceled <em>The Punisher</em> on Feb. 18, 2019. This came as a shock to no one, as Netflix had previously canceled <em>Daredevil</em> and the rest of the Defenders series.</p> <p>But all hope wasn’t lost for these characters and their stories. In 2021, Charlie Cox reprised his role as Matt Murdock in <em>Spider-Man: No Way Home</em> and Vincent D’Onofrio reprised his role as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin in <em>Hawkeye</em>. Cox will also appear in <em>She-Hulk: Attorney at Law</em>, and both actors will show up in <em>Echo</em>.</p> <p>And at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Marvel announced that <em>Daredevil: Born Again</em>, an 18-episode series starring <a href="https://ift.tt/3NYnTuS and D’Onofrio</a>, would air on Disney+ in early 2024. So, it stands to reason that Marvel will bring back more of the heroes and villains from the Netflix shows.</p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-block-embed-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <div class="jetpack-video-wrapper"><iframe loading="lazy" title="Marvel’s The Punisher: Season 2 | Official Trailer [HD] | Netflix" width="925" height="520" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/jrLhP5sK2wI?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div></figure> <h2>Rosario Dawson reveals that the Punisher is coming back to the MCU</h2> <p>Per <a href="https://ift.tt/BxI4Su2" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">ComicBook.com</a>, Rosario Dawson, who played Claire Temple in <a href="https://ift.tt/IoLWXqO Marvel Defenders series</a>, participated in a panel at C2E2 on Aug. 7. While speaking onstage, the actor seemingly spilled the beans regarding the Punisher’s return to the MCU.</p> <p>“I found out yesterday that the Punisher was happening again,” Dawson shared. “So I feel like it’s my second chance because it was the only one of the shows that I wasn’t in, and I love Jon Bernthal. So let’s all make it happen collectively, guys. [I would] be so happy to bring Claire Temple/Night Nurse back for sure.”</p> <p>As the actor explained, Claire appeared in <em>Daredevil</em>, <em>Jessica Jones</em>, <em>Luke Cage</em>, <em>Iron Fist</em>, and <em>The Defenders</em>. The only Netflix Marvel series she wasn’t featured in was <em>The Punisher</em>.</p> <p>Dawson’s comments suggest that it’s Jon Bernthal who would play the Punisher in the MCU. However, she walked back her statement on <a href="https://twitter.com/rosariodawson/status/1556529230116098048" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Twitter</a> on Aug. 8.</p> <p>“I can’t be trusted!” Dawson wrote. “Getting intel from fans during signings is iffy, apparently. My bad. I get excited. Confirmation is key when you’re told what you want to hear.”</p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-twitter wp-block-embed-twitter"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">IS JON BERNTHAL REALLY COMING BACK?!?<br><br>?: <a href="https://twitter.com/QboweTakes?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@QboweTakes</a> <a href="https://t.co/na90xGnHkt">pic.twitter.com/na90xGnHkt</a></p>— Matt Ramos (@therealsupes) <a href="https://twitter.com/therealsupes/status/1556385371134406656?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 7, 2022</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> </div></figure> <h2>Jon Bernthal discussed returning as the Punisher in the MCU</h2> <p>During an interview with <a href="https://ift.tt/WDvp6od" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Screen Rant</a> in September 2021, <a href="https://ift.tt/a9HGEsi Bernthal revealed</a> his willingness to reprise his role as the Punisher in the MCU.</p> <p>“You know, we’ll see. I mean, honestly, I don’t think about it very much,” the actor explained. “I’m really happy — look, we’re all enormously blessed to be doing this. I can say for the other guys that you’re talking to as well, we really love this. We really love doing this. We work hard at it, we support our families by it, through it, but we never lose touch [with] just how grateful we are to be in the position that we are that we get to do this for a living.”</p> <p>Bernthal continued, “I like to do this. I like to work with people I really respect and love and admire and make stuff with. This kind of project is precisely … it’s exactly the kind of stuff I want to be doing. So, whatever else comes, you know, kind of down the road, comes. But, this is something that’s really worth celebrating.”</p> <p><em>The Punisher</em> and <em>Daredevil</em> are available to stream on Disney+.</p> <p><strong>RELATED: <strong><strong><a href="https://ift.tt/7fk39Ce" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Charlie Cox Was ‘Disappointed’ When He Saw ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ in Theaters</a></strong></strong></strong></p>
