Comic book fans of Frank Castle aka the Punisher were delighted when he made his way into the Daredevil show in season 2 and I am one of them. John Bernthal as Punisher was so good that he literally stole the show from Daredevil.
Especially that moral conflict between Matt (Daredevil) and Frank (Punisher), the quotes, and everything was just exceptional. And with that performance, it wasn’t long before Punisher got his own show and captured millions of hearts all over the world.
This show is considered one of the best superheroes shows to ever exist. The Punisher has given has a lot of quotes that make this show more memorable to us. Here are some of the best quotes from the show I personally loved:
