Ben Barnes Talks About His Role in Netflix's 'The Punisher'

Ben Barnes looks so suave while posing for photos in Da Man magazine‘s new issue.

The 35-year-old actor opened up about his role in the upcoming Netflix series The Punisher. Check it out:

On the show’s approach: “I was really pleased at the grounded, tough approach to the material. our show is about men suffering tragedy and trauma; it’s about a very real topic set in a world of superheroes—but no character in our show has superpowers and that makes it feel unique in this universe.”

On people considering being cast in a superhero project a major milestone: “I don’t think so. I love watching all kinds of films including blockbusters. and it’s a nice badge to be included in the universe we know so well, certainly. All actors imagine if they were a superhero or villain, which one would it be? In my case, it’s not one I ever thought of but it’s nice to be able to define one without too many expectations of how he should be!”

On the most “punishing” aspect of the show: “It was a great challenge to find a character to appear opposite the Punisher. When a character is compelling and violent and charismatic like that, the challenge is to find the qualities that will balance him out or complement him. It was also pretty physically grueling in the action sequences—a lot of very cold night shoots in Brooklyn, New York. I always had some injury or other during the course of the season.”
