He’s coming for YOU.
We don’t yet know exactly when Netflix is going to drop the first season of “The Punisher,“ which sees Jon Berthal playing the title character in the wake of his appearances in “Daredevil.” It’s been promised that the series is going to be one of Marvel’s darkest and most violent exports to date, so you can color us excited.
The streaming service debuted a new promo teaser today, and it takes a found footage approach to Frank Castle’s violent brand of vigilante justice. Essentially, it presents Castle as a vicious predator the likes of which the Marvel Universe has not yet seen.
“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).
