Three new cast members will be joining Marvel & Netflix’s series The Punisher in 2017!
Actor Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian), who we previously thought would play a villain will actually play Frank Castle’s old friend Billy Russo. Russo used to know Castle from way back in his Special Forces days. Now, He’s in charge of a private military corporation called Anvil.
Ebon Moss-Bachrach (Girls) joins the cast as Micro. Micro is a former NSA analyst who has key information that Frank and others need.
Amber Rose Revah (Son of God) joins as Dinah Madani. Madani is a Homeland Security agent who’s on the hunt for the Punisher.
Here’s what showrunner and Executive Producer Steve Lightfoot had to say about the shows latest additions:
I’m really excited about the cast we’re assembling alongside Bernthal as Frank Castle. I look forward to watching Ben, Ebon and Amber embody these characters and breathe vivid life into the story we are crafting for this season of Marvel’s The Punisher.
Filming for The Punisher is currently underway and will stream globally on Netflix in 2017.
