First Photos of Jon Bernthal's Punisher on Set of Daredevil Season Two
The first set photos of Jon Bernthal as The Punisher are here, and they don't disappoint. Usually, you can't tell much from initial set photos, but these just happen to be taken during a particularly brutal fight scene, which is the perfect snapshot of the character. We can already see that Bernthal has cuts on his face, a feral expression, and a nasty chokehold, all of which makes him an ideal Frank Castle.

Here are the set photos, first published on Just Jared:

These photos don't come as a surprise, as Punisher is always an extremely violent character, but it does give fans some reassurance that this iteration won't be pulling its punches, literally and figuratively. Especially considering that the next season is informally called Daredevil vs Punisher, it's fairly necessary that Bernthal's interpretation have a little bit of an edge.

There are also photos (courtesy of Just Jared) which show Bernthal filming a different scene, and reveals Frank Castle's signature bulletproof vest and a makeshift Punisher symbol on his shirt:

The Punisher symbol isn't quite as stark as it is in the comics, but this makes sense, as a subtler symbol will fit in better with Daredevil's ultra-realistic aesthetic. 

Marvel/Netflix's Daredevil season two is set for release sometime in 2016.
