Netflix’s “Punisher” Series Gets Release Date and New Trailer

Well, now we finally know that November 17 will see the debut of Frank Castle’s spin-off series on Netflix when actor John Bernthal reprises the character he redeemed in Daredevil‘s second season on Netflix.

Along with that reveal, Netflix gave us a new trailer for the series, which looks to bring more of the grit and gore that Punisher fans can expect.

What’s most intriguing to me is the way they appear to blend this series as both a prequel and sequel to the events in Daredevil.  It also looks like a return to form for Netflix and Marvel, who hit a bit of a rough patch with Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

All episodes will be available to stream on November 17th.

 

The Punisher Goes Ballistic in New Trailer for Netflix and Marvel

I don’t know if I can handle three Marvel/Netflix series a year.  If I’m not reviewing them, I watch them with my wife, and our time for such is limited.  We’re still working our way through The Defenders!

Anyway, the next one in the pipe is The Punisher, and Netflix dropped a bomb on us all today with the first full trailer for the series:

If you’ve been watching the Marvel stuff on Netflix, then you know that Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, The Accountant) reprises his role from season 2 of Daredevil.  If you ask me, the role couldn’t be better cast, and the action looks sick here.

Interestingly enough, the date at the end of the video is obscured, so we still don’t have an official release date.

Maybe I’ll get to finish The Defenders.

Anyway, tell us what you think of the trailer below.
