Beetz isn't the only Skidmore alum portraying a Marvel character in a live action role. Jon Bernthal '99 scored his own Daredevil-spinoff after the success of portraying The Punisher on season two of the Netflix series. Bernthal returned to Skidmore in December 2016 to meet with students and discuss his career.
