Though it may not be official, actor Daniel Webber has shared our first look at the starry cast of The Punisher, Marvel and Netflix’s 2017 spinoff series headed up by Jon Bernthal. Say hello to Team Punisher, ladies and gentlemen.
Posted via Webber’s Instagram account over the weekend, here we see a bearded Bernthal flanked by Jason R. Moore, Michael Nathanson, Amber Rose Revah, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Jaime Ray Newman, Daredevil co-star Deborah Ann Woll and finally, Ben Barnes. The cameras have been rolling on The Punisher since October, which means it shouldn’t be too much longer before Netflix decides to drop the first reel of footage – in the build-up to Iron Fist‘s premiere in March, perhaps?
When it comes to how those actors filter into the story, two months ago Netflix posted an official round-up of the show’s core cast, including brief character bios and a rundown of which episode(s) they’re set to appear.
Daniel Webber (11.22.63) has been cast as Lewis Walcott, a young veteran who has had a difficult time re-assimilating into Civilian Society.
Jason R. Moore (A Lonely Place for Dying) joins as Curtis Hoyle, a friend of Frank Castle’s and one of the few people who knows he is alive.
Paul Schulze (Nurse Jackie) will play Rawlins, a high-ranking member of the CIA whose operations in Afghanistan intersect with Frank Castle.
Jaime Ray Newman (“Bates Motel”) plays Sarah Lieberman, Micro’s wife (played by Ebon Moss-Bachrach) whose marriage has made her life far more complicated.
Michael Nathanson (“The Knick,” “Wolf of Wall Street”) has been cast as Sam Stein, a Homeland agent who is challenged by his partnership with Dinah (Amber Rose Revah).
Iron Fist will kick off Netflix’s 2017 superhero offerings on March 17, before The Punisher and all eight episodes of The Defenders debut later in the year. We’ll notify you if and when Netflix announces official due dates for the latter two series.
