Marvel has just announced the return to the screen of one of their most iconic characters! Sorry Tom Hardy, we know you really wanted this one, but it seems that Marvel has decided to give this one over to Zombie Killing Badass, Jon Bernthal. Bernthal will play Vigilante Frank Castle, who attempts to clean up New York City by any means necessary.
The announcement was made a few minutes ago on twitter and on Marvel’s official site, Frank Castle will be joining Matt Murdock in Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix in 2016.

“Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.” – Jeph Loeb
