Seen firing two submachine guns while wearing the character's iconic skull-faced top with a long, black trench coat, Bernthal certainly looks the part more than ever.

While the future of the MCU original series on Netflix remains in question following the cancellation of Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil, both the second season of The Punisher and third season of Jessica Jones are poised to air on the premium streaming service in 2019.
