I'm currently watching the Netflix show "The Punisher" with Jon Bernthal. He is best known for his role as Shane Walsh in "The Walking Dead". So far I am liking this show. I'm on episode 10 at the moment. I read an article online where he had said that he almost didn't take on the role of Frank Castle aka The Punisher. His reason was that he wasn't really keen with the idea of being in a superhero franchise and he's not the only actor to think like that.
The Marvel Universe is littered with stars, but it could've been very different if certain people said yes. Here are the actors who passed on the MCU.

The Punisher is great in the comics, though two or three film versions were all quite bad, including the John Travolta one, so that might have made the actor wary to take the part in the series too but it sounds like it is succeful

I've actually never read the comics. The episodes of Daredevil is where I was first introduced to him.

The Punisher is the one of the best movies and video games ever. Also comics. I love it because it's so violent.

This one isn't as violent. There is lots of fighting, but it's not gory or anything.

I love it Wise Wizard because he punished those that deserved it and he wanted to punish those that murdered his wife and child.

@Hannihar Exactly. He punished those who deserved it and not the other way around. In the show he has even developed feelings for a woman... O.o

So far, the comments have been good.

I'm sure it will. Season 1 is out so it will most likely come out on DVD soon.

John, instead of DVD maybe do some searching to see if you can get it on youtube or something online.

He was on a show the other night I was watching. He seems to be enjoying the role now.

I think he's fantastic. I read in an interview that he takes his dog to work with him all the time. One of them was actually used in a Daredevil episode that has the Punisher in it. This is the dog in the pic.
