Production is well underway on Season 2 of Netflix’s Daredevil, and now we have our first look at The Punisher in action. Not surprisingly, he’s kicking butt and taking names.

Jon Bernthal’s (The Walking Dead) addition to the cast of the hit series was a major surprise, and many fans have been wondering how Marvel would adapt the iconic psychopath as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Yeah, we’ve had a few different Punishers on the big screen already (with mixed results), but this one should be sticking around for a while (and could eventually anchor his own series).

The first pics of Bernthal on set and in character have finally filtered out, and the shots show Bernthal’s Punisher in a black sweater and dark jeans, beating the stew out of a guy who appears to be either a cop or security guard of some kind. Not surprisingly, the Punisher is making short work of the poor guy. If nothing else, they've definitely nailed that part of the character. It's understated, but it works. Bernthal certainly looks the part, and we can’t wait to see some official pics and footage.

Check out the set pics below and let us know what you think:

The second season of Daredevil is set to hit Netflix in 2016.
