After a slew of teasers and cryptic posts on social media, a somewhat odd trailer for the Marvel/Netflix series The Punisher has arrived. It’s strange because it seems fragmented and broken in a way, perhaps like Frank’s fragmented life. It’s also, of course, filled with bloody violence
The footage sees Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle struggle to cope with the loss of his family and the violent, bloody path the grief has led him down. The trailer also teases a conspiracy that Frank will uncover, before using extreme methods of “justice” to eliminate the bad guys. As we’ve come to expect, there’s still no release date for the Netflix series.
The Twitter account for The Punisher recently shared the titles for all thirteen episodes, which were coded, before debuting a video promo that introduced the main cast. Presumably more details about the series will be revealed next month during the Marvel Television presentation at New York Comic Con.
In Marvel’s 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.
The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle and Ben Barnes as Billy Russo. The series also features Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Micro, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Daniel Webber as Lewis Walcott, Shohreh Aghdashloo as Farah Madani, and Paul Schulze as Rawlins, with Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio in an undisclosed role. The series is slated to debut on Netflix this year. You can view the trailer below:
