The Punisher Took 'Daredevil' Star Jon Bernthal to a 'Very, Very Dark Place'

Before Jon Bernthal could fully become The Punisher for Season 2 of Marvel and Netflix's gritty superhero series "Daredevil," he had to take a little punishment of his own.

No stranger to high intensity Hollywood roles -- including "Fury," "Sicario" and his stint as Shane on "The Walking Dead" -- Bernthal's also an accomplished boxer in his increasingly-scant spare time. And in order to get himself most fully into the headspace of Frank Castle, the iconic anti-hero whose high-caliber mission of vengeance often brings him into conflict with more moralistic crusaders like Matt Murdock, the actor's willing to go as far as possible to bring his character to life.

Moviefone: One of the things that's interesting about Frank Castle is that he seems to resonate deeply with comic book fans. Tell me how the passionate following for The Punisher has influenced your take?

Jon Bernthal: It's enormously important to me.

FreddieW's 'Metal Gear Sunrising' Shows Raiden's Routine

Start your day off with a ninja merc starting his day. This "American Psycho" riff imagines the morning regimen for "Metal Gear Rising Revengeance" cyborg ninja Raiden.

Borrowing lines liberally from Brett Easton Ellison's novel of 80's yuppie narcissism run amok, the slickly-produced (and very funny) video shows how (among other things) Raiden keeps his metal exterior so shiny.

The video was published via the FreddieW Youtube channel and created by Brandon Laatsch (director of the web series "Video Game High School"). Actor Eric Linden plays Raiden, and maybe the funniest detail in the whole thing is that they had to find a t-shirt and slacks to fit over Raiden's chassis.

Daily Briefing. 2011 Lists from Slant, Frieze, Ebert, MSN and More

  • MUBI
Slant's is, of course, the big list to appear since the last Briefing. From Nick Schager's introduction to the countdown of their collective top 25: "The auteurs had it in 2011, which delivered such a feast of fantastic domestic and international cinema that it's difficult to remember a year in which it was harder to compile a consensus Top 25. Nonetheless, best-of-year rankings wait for no critic, and our list is practically overflowing with films by young and old masters at the apex of their games, be it Terrence Malick's sumptuous spiritual odyssey The Tree of Life, Edward Yang's long-unreleased 1991 classic A Brighter Summer Day, or Abbas Kiarostami's formalist masterwork Certified Copy." Which lands at #1. At the House Next Door, you can scan the titles that came in between #26 and #50 as well as the individual ballots by Schager, Ed Gonzalez, Andrew Schenker, Jaime N Christley, Bill Weber, Jesse Cataldo,
