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 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.
