Watch: Power-packed action sequence puts Jon Bernthal's 'The Punisher' in the spotlight
Earlier reports had confirmed the villain's identity, with set pictures unveiling shots of Ben Barnes's character, Billy Russo, confronting his arch nemesis, Castle
With filming on the much-anticipated second season of Marvel's "The Punisher" in full swing, a scene focussing on the lead character has made its way to the Internet. And going by this candid glimpse, it's pretty understandable that the Frank Castle series is packing on some serious action.
"Jon Bernthal filming a scene for Season 2 of The Punisher in Dumbo, Brooklyn NY on May 22, 2018," the video footage, just 11 seconds long, was captioned. Shared by a dedicated fan page on Twitter, the clip revealed a crowded street, where Bernthal's lead character is seen running, apparently following someone's trail.
Apart from a glimpse of the action-heavy season, the short video hardly gives out much information about the plot. But it does reveal one significant aspect about Castle and his get-up — that the brutal vigilante is back in his Punisher gear, the one with a skull etched in front of it.
Earlier reports had confirmed the villain's identity, with set pictures unveiling shots of Ben Barnes's character, Billy Russo, confronting his arch nemesis, Castle. In the last season, Russo had proved to be a worthy antagonist, involved deeply in a political conspiracy.
It remains to be seen, though, if the character can continue with his antics in the upcoming season 2 as well. If Barnes' words are to be believed, Russo (who later on assumes the moniker of Jigsaw after his face is disfigured) will hardly retain any memory of the course of events.
"I think it's really interesting after having everything that you have made your foundations on in terms of the way that you come across to the world: his looks, the business that he's built up... that's all been literally shattered," Barnes was quoted as saying.
He adds: "We'll literally see it on his face. And so I think that there's great opportunity to explore what that does to his mind and what it is that he even remembers. I have no idea what kind of parameters they're going to give me to toy with it but I've certainly got lots of ideas about he could be."
