When we met Frank Castle aka The Punisher earlier this year in Daredevil we knew that we wanted to see more of him. The way that Jon Bernthal portrayed our favorite anti-hero was memorable and enthralling and thanks to Netflix we’ll get to see more of him when he debuts his own show. TVLine learnt exclusively that Ben Barnes will be playing an important role in the Punisher series.
Not much is known about Barnes’ character but TVLine did hear rumors that he could be playing the character of Bobby Saint, a corrupt crime prodigy, which is not a character from Marvel comics but was created for the 2004 film and played by James Carpinello.
Ben Barnes is best known for playing Prince Caspian in the The Chronicles of Narnia series but will play a role in the upcoming HBO series Westworld and has also appeared in Sons of Liberty.
The Punisher will be helmed by former Hannibal writer Steve Lightfoot, Netflix is yet to announce when it will released.
