Meet Frank Castle’s newest allies and challenges in THE PUNISHER solo series!
Five new characters are rounding out the major cast for Netflix and Marvel’s The Punisher!
The show was ordered shortly after the release of Daredevil Season 2, during which fans really got behind Jon Bernthal as the tough and tormented Frank Castle.
The Punisher has already announced a few major characters including Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Micro, and Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani. Daredevil‘s Deborah Ann Woll will also guest star as Karen Page, whose tenuous intrigue into Frank Castle played heavily into Season 2 of her original show.
The new characters announced by Marvel look like a solid mix of friends and foes, so take a look!
Daniel Webber (“11.22.63”) has been cast as Lewis Walcott, a young veteran who has had a difficult time re-assimilating into Civilian Society.
Jaime Ray Newman (“Bates Motel”) plays Sarah Lieberman, Micro’s wife (played by Ebon Moss-Bachrach) whose marriage has made her life far more complicated.
Jason R. Moore (“A Lonely Place for Dying”) joins as Curtis Hoyle, a friend of Frank Castle’s and one of the few people who knows he is alive.
Michael Nathanson (“The Knick,” “Wolf of Wall Street”) has been cast as Sam Stein, a Homeland agent who is challenged by his partnership with Dinah (Amber Rose Revah).
Paul Schulze (“Nurse Jackie”) will play Rawlins, a high-ranking member of the CIA whose operations in Afghanistan intersect with Frank Castle.
With the cast settled in, Marvel has confirmed with ComicBook.com that the series will premiere in 2017. That makes for an unprecedented three Marvel shows released on Netflix one year, with Iron Fist dropping on March 17, 2017 and The Defenders expected later in the year.
