Daredevil's Jon Bernthal teases his The Punisher weaponry, plus casting news
Jon Bernthal will be bringing the pain as The Punisher in the second season of Daredevil, and yesterday the former The Walking Dead and THE WOLF OF WALL STREET actor shared a behind-the-scenes look at the vigilante's weaponry on his Twitter. It's not clear if the photo is of the character's actual armory or if it's where the guns are stored when they aren't filming, but I'm thinking it's probably the latter since there's a security camera globe above the firearms.

In other Daredevil news, Deadline is reporting that Stephen Rider as joined the season season of the Marvel and Netflix show as a series regular. THE BUTLER and SAFE HOUSE actor will play Blake Tower, a District Attorney for New York City who gives Matt Murdock (as a lawyer, not Daredevil) information to help track down and capture criminals. In the comics, Tower made arrangements so that Misty Knight could go undercover and infiltrate Bushwhacker's organization, and yesterday we learned that Simone Missick might be playing Knight on Luke Cage. Do you think there's a chance Missick's character will appear in both series?
Daredevil Season 2 will premiere on Netflix in 2016.
