I'm undecided. I hope he approaches the role right. He can definitely be crazy and violent but I dunno about capturing the other parts of Frank Castle. I've seen him in a lot of bit roles. I did not like the Shane character on TWD so I dunno if that was him doing his job perfectly or me not liking his acting. He was just okay in that Mob miniseries. He was good in that bit of a supporting role in Snitch with The Rock.
I can't call it but given the tone of DD I think it can turn out good enough to great.
I kinda hope The Punisher's origin has already happened though and Frank is just visiting Hell's Kitchen to kill his next target of criminals.

No doubt DD is far superior and the other netflix shows will most likely be too but those are really on their own and I don't expect them to reference as much as AoS when it comes to other stuff going on in the MCU. Other than the crossover when the other 3 shows get going, I'd say only until they'll officially crossover in to the movies is when you'll get that feel of a more directly connected shared universe.

While I didn't read it the event, I do know what happened in the end and what it establishes and I know that on the tv/movie side Johns (or somebody else) has been saying they're establishing a DC cinematic multiverse to sort of explain why their multiple tv shows on the CW and other networks aren't even occurring in the same movie universe.
My belief is that the head honchos at DCU will think of the Movies as one Earth, the TV movies as another Earth and such. From a cost perspective it keeps every actor in one simple line of payment, and should the opportunity arise have some crossovers to break our wallets or some monster marketing opportunities.
I personally would've liked to see Amell, Gustin, Cassidy and the rest that are coming interact with Kal Drogo and his happy campers on a movie, but the cost of doing that would be huge (well for us. Warner might just burn their equivalent on a fishing trip).
Either way with both separate the potential for a Crisis event is there.
Well yeah Johns mentioned the whole multiverse cinematic thing. That's not anything new. I don't see how that connects to the end of Convergence though. I mean all it really did was undo what Flashpoint and the New52 had done as a new status quo for their new multiverse. Now they're going back and saying all the past stuff and how it happened counts again.
I don't think they'll do a Crisis any time soon though. If there's a better relationship between tv ppl and movies though it may be more feasible. It'd be a juggernaut of a project to take on. Plus it's DC and from what I've seen if done they'd totally botch this on a grand scale.

do you even think AoS will last that long? isnt Inhumans like in 2019?
Exactly what I was going to say
But if it is still around it'd be cool.
