At this stage, it's not exactly a secret that Jon Bernthal will reprise the role of Frank Castle/The Punisher for Daredevil: Born Again, but the actor has now made his return officially official with a new behind-the-scenes photo.

We've seen Bernthal suited-up as the ultra-violent vigilante alongside Charlie Cox's Man Without Fear in a series of set photos, but here we see The Walking Dead alum taking a break between shooting to pose for a snap with Cox and Deborah Ann Woll, who will also be back as Karen Page.

Initially, Woll and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson) were not going to be a part of the series, but after a significant overall, their characters were added. Since Born Again is so deep into production, the fact that Woll is still filming scenes may suggest that Page will be a part of the final few episodes.

In a 2023 interview, Bernthal promised that he's going to ensure that we get a comic-accurate take on The Punisher in Born Again.

"I also know that it’s absolutely essential that if we do it, we do it right and we have real sacred integrity to the source material and to what is at the core of Frank. I’m gonna do my absolute best to make sure that, if and when we do it, we do it right.”

Will Castle be allowed to be as uncompromisingly brutal as he was in his own show? We had been led to believe that Born Again was going to be PG-13, but the recent news that the show will be released under the Marvel Spotlight banner has led to renewed speculation that it will be TV-MA.

Castle and Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) have a lot of history in the comic books, and even though they don't cross paths in Frank Miller's Born Again comic, we already know that the show is going to make some significant changes to the source material.

The show is not expected to run for the originally announced 18 episodes. A recent rumor claimed that it would likely air 9 (possibly 6) episodes before taking a mid-season break.

The upcoming Disney+ series doesn't have an official release date yet, but is still listed as being on Disney's updated 2024 schedule.

Love the dynamic between Frank and Karen (she was at her best in her scenes with him imo) so I'm very to see we're getting more of them.

@Polaris - I liked Karen overall but her stuff with Frank was some of her best..

I like that you weren’t sure if it was a romantic connection or a bond deeper then that since they both know what it means to take a life.

@MyCoolYoung - I'm more optimistic of the success of their future films/shows than I've been since the box office sales starting taking nose dives.

I've enjoyed everything, but it will be better if the majority are also enjoying them as much as they used to.

@LSHF - I don’t have a lot of faith we’ll get back there. I’m just enjoying the ride while we still can

@MyCoolYoung - I guess it's best to not get any expectations, but hope for the best, prepare for the worst, and, yes, enjoy the ride while we can.

He’s someone I grew to like after initially not being sure and especially as he came into his own more through the show as a lawyer.

His friendship with Matt and Elden’s chemistry with Charlie was good & fun too.

I just got the Avocados at Law back and can’t lose em so soon!!.

Hopefully the MCU does Frank justice. I feel like Netflix severely held him back. I wanna see some unconventional executions with various inanimate objects.

Karen has Ben's blood on her hands. She got journalism through being blonde/haired, blue-eyed, degree be darned. She's inept. Not relatable. I don't root for her.

But y'all complain about "woke". Right skinned guy beats a wrong skinned ELDER to death and his return is awaited with baited breath.

Boo hoo. Made fun of for being big and poor. Abused. Sensitive snowflake. Get over it. Kingpin is the most poorly written villain in Marvel. "Pulled himself up by his bootstraps" and is a symbol for having the right skin, meaning you're above the law.

Don't get me started on Punisher. A wrong skinned vigilante would have more holes than Spongebob from righteous bullets.
