Is Marvel Studios making a mistake with ‘Daredevil: Born Again’?
Unfortunately, at this point we still don’t know enough about the series’ history to know anything about it, but the question quickly arises: is Frank Castle/The Punisher the right villain to bring back?

Jon Bernthal’s Punisher we met him in the second season of Reckless on Netflix. There, Frank Castle made his own progress from him.
The Punisher He started out as Daredevil’s enemy and almost ended up as Defender. Punisher had two seasons, in which Frank Castle became an anti-hero.

The saddest, most brutal Marvel show of all time.
The last two eps almost made me cry.
It brings the dirty side of political governments and society.
Frank and Billy might just be the best dynamic in a wonderful show.

Because we don’t know much, we can’t say if we still Daredevil: Born Again A soft reset, a soft reset, it will be. Or that the series stands on its own.
The latter would get in the way of Frank Castle/Punisher’s character development. Something that worries the fans.
I don’t want to sound like only one actor could play a character, but if Wilson Bethel doesn’t return as Bullseye, then I’d rather they didn’t use him at all.
Someone like Vanessa can top it, but it would be very hard to see someone else play this character alongside Charlie’s Daredevil. pic.twitter.com/lD0pQV54Qu

Fortunately, there’s someone else who could make a good villain: Bullseye.
The character, also known by his real name Benjamin Pointdexter (played by Wilson Bethel), was introduced in the third season of Reckless on Netflix.
Bullseye was a sniper, assassin, and main man for Vincent d’Onofrio’s Kingpin. Bullseye was also seen in the movie with Ben Affleck, where he was played by Colin Farrell.
