Ben Barnes cast as villain in Netflix Punisher series

Looks like things are starting to heat up on the long-rumored Netflix PUNISHER series. When Jon Bernthal's tortured take on the character first appeared on DAREDEVIL season 2, fans were immediately clamoring for him to have his own solo series. While I haven't watched the DAREDEVIL series myself, of what I've seen of Bernthal's take, I'd say that I'm a fan of it as well.

Add Ben Barnes to the cast as an, as of yet, unspecified villain. Although, rumors are that he is playing Bobby Saint, crime savant that was played by James Carpinello in the 2004 PUNISHER film (a movie I hated, but loved Thomas Jane in. Man, that guy deserves better).

Anyway, this seems like solid casting. I've liked everything I've seen Barnes in (CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: PRINCE CASPIAN, STARDUST), so I think he'll make a fine, weasely, greasy villain you want Punisher to kill the shit out of. Hell, if it turns out the rumors are false and he's not playing Bobby Saint, I think he'd make an awesome Jigsaw. 

No official release date has been set for PUNISHER, though it is rumored to be premeiring Fall 2017.

So what do you guys think? And what villains would you like to see make it in the show?

Extra Tidbit: In the comics, Punisher once died and was resurrected as an Angel of Death with heavenly guns and stuff. Comics are weird.

Do yourself a favor, and go watch the series. You won't be disappointed.

Ben Barnes is a solid actor, and he'd make for a great addition to the MCU.

But Ben Barnes was not in Skyfall. I think you're thinking of Ben Whishaw...

It wasn't Barnes in Perfume or Cloud Atlas, either. All three of those movies mentioned were Whishaw.

Barnes was Prince Caspian in the Narnia movies.
