Redacted Release for Netflix’s “The Punisher” Series

Netflix has shared new imagery and official art for Marvel’s “The Punisher” that continue to redact the release date, which leads me to believe they may surprise drop it at any moment.

The series revolves around Frank Castle, who uses lethal methods to fight crime as the vigilante “the Punisher.”

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.

Ben Barnes, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Amber Rose Revah, Deborah Ann Woll, Daniel Webber, Jason R. Moore, Paul Schulze, Jaime Ray Newman, and Michael Nathanson also star.

“The Punisher” was created for Netflix by Steve Lightfoot, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

    Keep the Iron First Poof and Rosario Dawson away, and it will be a great series.

      Why would Iron Fist show up in a Punisher series of all things to begin with? Those two have rarely interacted in the comics, if ever. Also, it’s been confirmed for months that Rosario Dawson isn’t showing up.

      • MeeGhoulz

        Pity about Rosario though…

        • Mason

          All Claire would do is just scream “Frank, quit killing people. You’re no better than the bad guys if you do”. Besides, Frank knows how to take care of himself after a battle. We already have Karen as the supporting female character.

          • MeeGhoulz

            As to Karen, please ,read my comment above. The Nurse really wouldn’t approve Punisher methods, but could be interesting to bring more DD/Punisher interactions.

        I think the show staff actually wanted to have Claire show up, but ultimately they couldn’t figure out a way to have her organically appear and figured it was better to not force it, and let Karen Page be the supporting character who ties this show over to The Defenders and the other Netflix shows.

        • Mason

          Actually, Rosario Dawson herself stated that she couldn’t do it because she had scheduling conflicts. It’s not far-fetched to believe that Defenders and Punisher were being shot at the same time or within a similar timetable of one another. For that reason, Rosario would have been too busy with Defenders. She might have had other projects after that could have ended up taking up her time.

          Rosario admits that she would have loved to be involved, but she ultimately couldn’t. To be honest, it’s for the best that Claire doesn’t appear in the Punisher show.

    Iron Fist and The Defenders were so disappointing I hope Marvel does right by The Punisher. The Punisher has always been up there as one of my favorite Marvel comics alongside Daredevil and the many X-Men books.
    What’s the consensus on The Punisher movies? My favorite is War Journal because the violence reaches near Tromaville levels of silliness and Dominic West really hams it up as Jigsaw. I didn’t hate the Thomas Jane movie but the only great scene was the fight with Kevin Nash as The Russian. As for the Dolph Lundgren movie well at least it is better than that 1990 released Captain America movie.

      Great assessment

  • MeeGhoulz

    Hope it’s Garth Ennis inspired… My, Deborah Ann Woll is gorgeous!

    • Mason

      Ennis wrote Punisher MAX and the villain happens to be William Rawlins, so there is some inspiration there already.

    • J Jett

      agreed Deborah is a knockout! 🙂

  • J Jett

    i had no idea the release date for this show kept changing. when was it originally supposed to air? either way i’m happy Deborah Ann is going to be in some of this 1st season. i really love her interaction with Punisher in DD season 2.

  • Not sure what to expect from this. After the terrific first season of daredevil and the intriguing season of Jessica Jones, the quality diminished with each turn – Luke cage was average, daredevil season 2 become repetitive half way through, and Iron Fist…was just horrible. Then the defenders came and it was totally underwhelming. Hopefully this will be better?

    • J Jett

      i pretty much agree w/ you (even though i enjoyed IRON FIST and some of DD 2 was good even though it ONLY exists to set up THE PUNISHER & DEFENDERS). LUKE CAGE imo was good up until they got rid of Cottonmouth. Diamondback is one of the most laughably bad/atrocious things i’ve ever seen. i won’t be watching season 2.
      JESSICA JONES is my fave thus far and i did enjoy DEFENDERS.

    Anyway, looking quite forward to this! No superpowers, no magic, just violent murder and bloody vengeance. Awww yeahhh….
