Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle in The Punisher was a much-beloved role that many fans consider a perfect bit of casting. So when a rumor that Bernthal may be returning as the character for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming Phase 5, it caused quite the buzz on Twitter.
But just where did this rumor come from to begin with? It all comes from an Instagram account of an actor named Kasey O’Keefe, who showed off a picture of himself with Bernthal. After gushing about Bernthal’s “tremendous” talent and “range” as an actor, O’Keefe concluded the caption by writing, “Looking forward to working with you During Marvel Phase 5!!”
