There are no zombies in sight, but the danger feels omnipresent for Walking Dead alum Jon Bernthal in the dark and brooding trailer for the new thriller, Sweet Virginia.
This two-and-a-half minute clip, premiering exclusively on Yahoo Entertainment, illustrates where Frank Castle (played by Jon Bernthal) came from ... and where the Punisher is going.
The second season of Daredevil starts streaming on Netflix on Friday, and it re-shapes and sharpens the series in new ways. The first seven episodes made available for review introduce two key characters from the Marvel Comics series—the Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra (Elodie Yung)—and tinker with Daredevil Matt Murdock’s law-office relationships. Thus we get lots of knock-down, drag-out fistfights between Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Bernthal’s Frank Castle, the emotionally-wounded war vet who becomes known as the Punisher, followed by some awfully long discussions between the two about how ethically vexed it is to engage in knock-down, sometimes murderous fistfights, complete with dialogue such as “I think that the people I kill deserve killing.” It would be an interesting debate if the speeches were as vivid as the fight scenes are.
