New Daredevil Season 2 Character Posters Tease Foggy, Karen, and The Punisher
Daredevil season two is fast approaching, and while we haven't seen an individual character poster for Punisher yet, he's been consistently lurking in the background. Yesterday saw him putting Daredevil in chains, and today Karen is working with the spectre of a skull hanging over her, much like it was in the Comic Con teaser





Frank Castle, aka Punisher, is one of the primary antagonists of this season. He will be played by The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal, and will provide an ideological foil for Matt Murdock. Like Daredevil, he wants to clean up the streets of Hell's Kitchen, but unlike Matt, he's willing to commit murder to achieve that goal. Daredevil will also face off against classic comics character Elektra, played by relative newcomer Elodie Yung, who is portrayed in the show as his old college girlfriend and is described as a "sociopath."

Here's the official synopsis for the upcoming season:

Opening quote
Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell's Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios. Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt's neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.
