Frank Castle’s Bruised And Bloody In The Punisher Season 2 Set Pics


Frank Castle will soon be back to make the lives of New York’s criminals a misery as the second season of Netflix’s The Punisher is now going before the cameras. The Marvel series is currently filming in Bellmore, NY and the first photos featuring star Jon Bernthal on the set have surfaced online.

A spinoff of Daredevil season 2, the first season of The Punisher turned out to be one of the strongest entries in Netflix’s corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. Part of that was to do with its talented cast, including Amber Rose Revah as Special Agent Dinah Madani, Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Frank’s techy pal Micro and Ben Barnes as friend-turned-foe Billy Russo.

Season 2 will add at least three new players into the mix, as well. Supergirl‘s Floriana Lima will play Krista Dumont, a psychotherapist for military vets, Josh Stewart is John Pilgrim, a violent man who winds up in Frank’s circle, and Georgia Whigham will step into the shoes of Amy Bendix, a street-smart young grifter.

It’s too early to say for sure what shape the season will take, but casting calls have suggested a couple of comic book storylines that might be adapted for the screen. Namely, “Suicide Run,” which sees Frank recovering from a near-death experience, and “Slavers,” an infamously dark story arc that explores sex slavery.

We also expect the season to tackle Billy Russo’s transformation into Jigsaw, the Punisher’s arch-enemy from the comics. Frank already brutally disfigured his face by repeatedly ramming his head into a mirror, but the season 1 finale stopped short of showing us what had become of him. We’re betting he’s not going to be pleased with what the titular antihero’s done to him next time we see him, though.

With filming now underway, expect more details on The Punisher season 2 to surface shortly.
