There’s been speculation for a while now that Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle would be in The Defenders and Marvel may have inadvertently confirmed that. Bleeding Cool believes he may have now been added to the cast of the highly anticipated Netflix series which premieres this coming August. It looks like almost every supporting character will be showing up in the show as well. The names announced for next Friday’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con features Mike Colter, Finn Jones, Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Elodie Yung, Deborah Ann Woll, Jessica Henwick, Marco Ramirez, Jon Bernthal and Jeph Loeb. So, does this confirm that Punisher will make his presence felt here?
He could just be on the panel to reveal new details about The Punisher on Netflix because it is set to premiere in 2017. Though, we do think it would be a little strange given that no other cast member for that show will be joining him. We do think we’ll get The Punisher trailer though, for a big push at New York Comic-Con in the fall. We’ll have to wait for next week to see if The Punisher will be joining The Defenders.
