THE PUNISHER Star Jon Bernthal Responds To Fans Wanting Him To Play The MCU's Wolverine

While a lot of fans would love to see Jon Bernthal reprise his role as Frank Castle in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are just as many people who'd like to see him as Wolverine. Here's his response!

Jon Bernthal first played Frank Castle in Daredevil before making the leap to his own solo series with The Punisher. That only lasted for two seasons before Netflix parted ways with Marvel Television, and while there's since been speculation about the actor reprising the role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, nothing has been confirmed thus far. 

Forbes recently caught up with Bernthal to discuss a number of topics, including how much fans would like to see the actor suit up as the new Wolverine when the X-Men franchise is rebooted. 

"Look, the criteria in which I sort of decide what I'm doing next is: Does the script move me? Who am I working with? Who is the filmmaker and is that somebody I'm dying to work with? I'm going to hold onto that moving forward no matter what that is," The Punisher star explained. 

"I get it, I get that the Marvel questions, you're asking these questions because it's super important to a lot of people; people love these characters and I get that and I come to that with absolute respect. What I will tell you again is that Frank Castle is in my bones. Frank Castle is in my bones."

While he's clearly choosing his words carefully here, it sounds a lot like Bernthal is most interested in returning as The Punisher somewhere down the line. 

That's understandable given his love of the character, though we'd be shocked to see him turn down another major MCU role if Kevin Feige and company have decided to sideline Frank Castle. That's certainly feasible given the way Frank's logo has been co-opted by certain movements recently, while it could be a struggle to make this R-Rated vigilante fit into a PG-13 universe. 

Do you think Bernthal would make a better Wolverine than Punisher in the MCU?
