Originally Aired: 01/25/19 – We review The Punisher Season 2. We talk with Royce Johnson of The Punisher. We also speak with Kelly Thompson of Captain Marvel.

Show Notes:

We talk with actor Royce Johnson, better known to viewers as Detective Sergeant Brett Mahoney on Marvel’s Daredevil, The Punisher and Jessica Jones. A regular on the three Netflix series, Royce has a pretty big role in the latest season of The Punisher. Royce will be on to talk about Punisher Season 2 as well his performances throughout the “Defenders-verse”.

Our review of Punisher Season 2 starring Jon Bernthal, Amber Rose Revah and Ben Barnes. Former marine-turned-vigilante Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) has been living a quiet life on the road until he suddenly becomes embroiled in the attempted murder of a young girl (Giorgia Whigham). As he is drawn into the mystery surrounding her and those in pursuit of the information she holds, Castle attracts a new target on his back as new and old enemies force him to confront whether he should accept his destiny and embrace a life as The Punisher.

We also talk with comic writer Kelly Thompson returns (via phone). Kelly just finished up a co-writing gig with Ed Brisson and Matthew Rosenberg on Uncanny X-Men. The first issue of her new Captain Marvel series just hit stands last week. On top of that, she’s currently writing West Coast Avengers, Jessica Jones and Mr. and Mrs. X. It’s safe to say that Kelly’s got a lot of Marvel characters on her plate.

It was a great show!
