You know that feeling we all got when we first saw Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark ten years ago? Where you saw him on the screen and you just knew this was exactly who Tony Stark is meant to be? That’s how I felt when I watched Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle in The Punisher. Holy hell did he own that role.
“One batch, two batch, penny and dime.”
I thought season 2 of Daredevil was underwhelming at best, and straight up DUMB at its worst (see here), but the Punisher arc singlehandedly kept me watching throughout the season. So when the Punisher got a show of his own, I was SO ready to see Frank Castle wreck shit up.
Sure, there were some flaws (I thought several parts of Madani’s arc were inconsistent), but otherwise I loved it. Can’t wait for season two. Bring on the brutality.
At any rate, lil’ Frankie will be up for grabs at San Diego Comic-Con! Find him there and he’s yours to keep!
If you want to join my hunt for crocheted critters at San Diego Comic-Con this year, follow me on either twitter or facebook to track my drops! I just ask for two things if you find a critter: 1) Send me a photo of your new friend! 2) Let me know where the little buddy’s new home will be! Good luck, and happy hunting!
