Steven DeKnight had to leave Marvel’s Daredevil series to direct a feature film, so he will not be working on season two, which features The Punisher.
DeKnight was around when they discussed bringing Frank Castle, who will be played by Jon Bernthal, into the show, and he was at the Television Critics Association summer press tour today for Netflix’s Showrunners panel. After the panel, I approached DeKnight to ask if this could finally be a chance to do The Punisher right after three wildly different movies starring Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson. The good news is that the Daredevil season 2 Punisher may be the closest to the comics version we’ve seen on screen. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Netflix’s first Marvel Studios series Daredevil was an instant hit, even if our tendency to binge shows means we’re not talking much about the show anymore, there’s plenty to be excited about for the forthcoming second season.
Jon Bernthal has joined the series as The Punisher, and Elodie Yung landed the role of Elektra, all for a season that also brings new showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, replacing Spartacus producer Steven S. DeKnight.
Now another new talent has come on board behind the scenes as OZY (via ScreenCrush) reports Swedish cinematographer Martin Ahlgren will be lensing the second season of Daredevil, fresh off his previous Emmy-nominated work with Netflix on eleven out of thirteen episodes in the third season of House of Cards. Find out more about the new Daredevil cinematographer after the jump! Read More »
Daredevil season 2 has new showrunners, Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, and a big new Marvel character as the anti-hero Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, is set to bring violent vigilante justice to Hell’s Kitchen. Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) will play Castle when the show’s second season gets going.
Since the casting announcement, we’ve wondered to what degree the Punisher would factor in to Daredevil. Turns out, he might be a huge part of the season, to the degree that he could provide the most significant opposition to Daredevil in the new collection of episodes. Read More »

Editor’s Note: Below is our review of from the Sundance Film Festival. We’re republishing it now that Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is open in limited release. Find theaters here.
On paper, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl doesn’t seem particularly exciting. An adaptation of a book by Jesse Andrews, it’s the story of a high school senior who is forced to become friends with a school acquaintance who is diagnosed with leukemia.
Interesting, yes but not that exciting. Thankfully, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl isn’t merely on paper. It’s a film — in fact, a film that loves film, celebrates film, and is very much about the medium – with beautiful shot composition, tense long takes and elaborate tracking shots. It tells a touching and incredibly funny story with very realistic, honest characters and enough self-awareness to make it all feel modern. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and adapted by Andrews, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl had its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival this weekend.
