Disney + had no issue with release MCU shows This year there is still a legion of vocal fans yearning for the stars the once mighty Netflix series to get our due. First of all, this hope remained for Daredevil Charlie Cox and John Bernthal the Punisher, and although Cox is rather spoke gracefully about MCU Daredevil, reminding people that he is all in the app, Bernthal did quite a more emphatic statement.
In a recent interview with Hollywood ReporterBernthal revealed that he remains passionate about the role, which helped catapult his current fame. “He’s really in my heart, man. He really is in my bones, ”he said, calling himself“ extremely protective ”of Frank. While he hadn’t played the character since 2019, he was still grateful to be able to explore Frank’s darkness in the limited time he had, and he described Frank as having “deep meaning and resonance.”
When asked about the possibility of returning to Frank’s bloodied combat boots in the MCU itself – as it is a thing everyone can do now– Bernthal emphasized that it cannot be sanded to match the usual MCU tone. “I think if this character has any flaws, you are doing a disservice to the character, every iteration of it … and all the incredible fans of this character,” he said. “It has to be a level of darkness … it’s not whether you’re playing a character; the question is, can you do it right, and I’m only interested in doing it right. “
While he doesn’t say it directly, it’s clear that Bernthal is skeptical about how the MCU will tackle the Punisher when he eventually appears. So far, films and shows have been mostly family-run, and even some of their heavier material such as What if or Eternal sometimes whisking away those instances or bringing them back to the standard happy endings that sequels also create. Time will tell if Disney is willing to let the MCU truly dim in the darkness that has created Daredevil, Punisher, and Jessica Jones make you watch for several seasons, or if their rendition of Frank Castle is just a nice guy with a gun.
