Daredevil: Born Again Photos Confirm Jon Bernthal's Punisher Return With An MCU Upgrade

Matt Murdock will have his work cut out for him, as one of the photos showcases some intriguing badges. The patch reads, “Anti-Vigilante Task Force New York City — Mayor Fisk.” Given the history between Daredevil and Kingpin, it’s safe to say the devil-themed vigilante will be within the task force’s crosshairs. Punisher also falls into that camp, and the photos confirm a rumored plot detail that would explain Frank Castle’s return. Police officers can be seen wearing the Punisher logo on their uniforms, which Frank probably won’t be a fan of. 

Several photos show Daredevil and Punisher side-by-side, with ol’ Red having decidedly less blood on him than Frank. Maybe Punisher gets into some trouble before his ally shows up. In addition to all the photos, @SplashNews uploaded a video to X (formerly Twitter) showing the beginning of shooting a scene for “Daredevil: Born Again.” Both actors cover their ears before the scene begins, and the noise of what sounds like glass shattering occurs. It’s unclear what precisely is transpiring, but the fact Jon Bernthal and Charlie Cox are suited up in a Marvel project once again is more than enough to tide over fans for now.

“Daredevil: Born Again” resumed filming after a creative overhaul earlier this year and currently has no release date. While Bernthal’s Punisher will officially be in the series, speculation continues to swirl over other Netflix Marvel characters who could be “born again,” as it were. For example, Krysten Ritter’s Instagram activity has fans wondering if she could come back as Jessica Jones. All such things will be revealed in due time.
