The first season of Marvel’s The Punisher garnered rave reviews. The reviews were so strong and positive that it was renewed for a second season close to a week after its initial release on Netflix.
Now as the story of former Marine turned vigilante, Frank Castle heads into its sophomore season, more talent is being added to the cast. The show stars Jon Bernthal and includes Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, and Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle returning from season 1. Jo
Being added to the cast as series regulars are Shooter actor Josh Stewart will play John Pilgrim, “a man whose calm exterior belies a ruthless interior. Despite having left behind a life of violence, circumstances will force him to use his old skills and bring him into Frank Castle’s world.” Meanwhile, Supergirl‘s Floriana Lima will portray Krista Dumont, “a smart, compassionate, and driven psychotherapist for military veterans.” (that explains why her and Danvers broke up in Supergirl….that and kids) Last but not least, Giorgia Whigham (Scream) will play Amy Bendix, “a street-smart grifter with a mysterious past.”
As of now, Bendix is the only established Marvel Comics character of the three, and a very minor one at that. It seems that this version of Bendix will be relatively different from the comics. .
