Jon Bernthal was recently confirmed to be returning as The Punisher in the Daredevil: Born Again series that will be coming to Disney+ whenever it releases. For now, the series has recently started filming, but there is no other update on it yet. Just as characters Daredevil and Wilson Fisk have returned, many fans are constantly wondering what other characters will be returning or what doors this opens for more characters to join the field of the MCU.
Could Bushwacker Join The MCU?
In the live-action The Punisher series we first saw on Netflix before it was moved to Disney+, we saw a very grounded take on the character. The TV show never really showed any outlandish villains in the series, which is understandable since the whole series of The Defenders seemed more down to earth than the MCU. Still, now with it moving its characters into that universe, it makes us wonder if we will see characters like Bushwacker join.
The MCU explored this world just a little bit more when bringing in a Kingpin appearance, and we will be seeing Fisk again in Daredevil: Born Again as well. Bringing in more dangerous and deathly villains could even be a way that Kingpin makes problems that our heroes need to clean up. This could give both Daredevil and The Punisher a big fight, which could even be how Frank Castle is brought into the series.
For now, there is no official news on if Bushwacker will be in the MCU or any other villains from the comics other than Kingpin. Something we do know is that the actors who played Karen Page and Foggy Nelson haven’t been cast for Daredevil: Born Again and, therefore, won’t be making an appearance as far as we know in the series. Daredevil’s new series is set to release in 2024.
