Former star of The Walking Dead Jon Bernthal is returning to screens next year in the second season of Marvel's Daredevil on Netflix.

Marvel Studios revealed last night that Bernthal will step into the role of Frank Castle AKA The Punisher, a street vigilante who's on the hunt for revenge following his family's death.

A fan of brutality and violence, The Punisher is a man who's going to provide some tough competition for Matt Murdock.

Jeph Loeb of Marvel Television said that Bernthal is the perfect man for the job, as he "brings an unmatched intensity to every role he takes on".

He continued: "Castle's appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Mudock and nothing will be the same."

Frank Castle was first seen in live-action portrayed by Dolph Lundgren in a 1989 film, with Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson stepping into the role in later films in the 2000s.

Marvel's Daredevil is expected to return to Netflix next year.
