Marvel And Netflix's THE PUNISHER Casts CHRONICLES OF NARNIA's Ben Barnes As Series Regular

Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil spin-off has added British actor Ben Barnes in a series regular role, believed to be that of the villainous Bobby Saint. He'll join Jon Bernthal as the ultra-violent vigilante...

TV Line has broken our first bit of casting news for Marvel and Netflix's planned Daredevil spin-off, which will continue the bloody exploits of The Punisher. According to them, Ben Barnes (Westworld, Dorian Gray, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) has signed on to star opposite Jon Bernthal's Frank Castle.

We don't know for certain who he'll be playing, but TV Line has heard it'll be Bobby Saint, who is not actually a Marvel Comics character and was introduced in 2004's The Punisher as the son of John Travolta's Howard Saint. This seems like an unusual move, as there are lots of great Punisher villains that could be utilized ahead of a minor thug created for a 12 year-old movie.

Anyway, we'll see if this turns out to be the case. In the meantime, let us know what you think in the usual place.
