After months of rumors and speculation, we recently got confirmation that Jon Bernthal will reprise the role of Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, for Daredevil: Born Again, and a new report is now claiming that a solo Disney+ series featuring the ultra-violent vigilante is in development.

Of course, Bernthal already led his own Punisher Netflix show for two seasons. One would assume this new project would be considerably less dark and violent, but Born Again is expected to take the intensity up a few notches in its own right. Also, Bernthal has stated on several occasions that he'd have no interest in returning as a "watered down" take on Castle.

We're still not sure how the Punisher will factor into Born Again, but previous reports have indicated that he won't have a huge role, so his part may lay the groundwork for this series.

We'll have to take this as a rumor for the time being, but @MyTimeToShineHello has a pretty solid track record.

In related news, Deborah Ann Woll has confirmed that she won't be back as Karen Page.

Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk) will also reprise their respective roles from the Netflix Daredevil series, along with new cast members Michael Gandolfini, Nikki M. James and Sandrine Holt. We recently learned that Holt will play The Kingpin's wife, Vanessa Fisk, while James is rumored to be playing assistant DA Kristen McDuffie.

The show will be loosely based on the '80s Marvel Comics series of the same name by Frank Miller and David Mazzuchelli, but is not expected to be an overly faithful adaptation. Despite some significant changes to the story, "Daredevil versus Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin, remains the focal point."

Matt Corman and Chris Ord are on board as writers and executive producers. No premiere date has been announced, but the show is expected to bow in the spring of 2024.
