The Punisher is back on the job. Back in the fight.
The Marvel Netflix shows are quickly coming to an end. After the cancellation of Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil, all that remains are The Punisher and Jessica Jones. And with Disney+ launching later this year, the likelihood of Netflix’s remaining two Marvel shows being cancelled are very high. And while we know the inevitable is coming, we can still look forward to one more season from the two.
The latest trailer for The Punisher season 2 has been released. In it, we get more of an idea of what Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) will be doing now that he has been paroled and what a disfigured Billy Russo (Ben Barnes) will be doing to get his revenge. Check out the trailer below.
Before the end of last year, Netflix canceled Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil. It was a surprising move but one that was not entirely unexpected given that Disney would be launching their own streaming service, Disney+, at the end of 2019. So all that remains of the Marvel Netflix deal are Jessica Jones and The Punisher. The latter was a new addition to the original deal that only featured four heroes of New York City. Though he made an intro in season 2 of Daredevil, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) made quite an impression in his own series.
Now, he’s back for season 2. And this time, he’s going up against a familiar face. Ben Barnes also returns to play the series’ lead nemesis Billy Russo, whose disfigurement at the end of season 1, has transformed him into becoming Jigsaw. Netflix has released a new trailer for the season, which also announces a release date. Check out the trailer below.
The Punisher has been riding on the waves of high anticipation since his character debut in season 2 of Daredevil. But much, if not all, of that excitement died out in the wake of the Las Vegas shootings.
Marvel Television respectfully pulled their NYCC panel, which was rumored to unveil the release date. At the time, some believed that the series would be released this month. But a new trailer confirms that The Punisher can be streamed next month. Check out the full trailer below.
What first started out as four street heroes defending New York City has since expanded into something else in the Marvel TV universe. The Punisher is the latest addition to the Marvel and Netflix collaboration, and though Frank Castle aka The Punisher didn’t appear in the Defenders miniseries ensemble, he will make his presence known… one bloody victim at a time. Jon Bernthal returns to reprise the title role, which was first introduced to us during the clunky Season 2 of Daredevil. The character was arguably the best thing about that season, even though the role felt more like it was shoehorned.
That being said, The Punisher is out for revenge and to bring justice to the family he lost thanks to a shadowy government organization. It doesn’t matter who Frank Castle has to go through to get that. Even if it means hitting Homeland Security, the CIA, the FBI, and more. Check out the first full trailer for Marvel’s The Punisher here below, which puts Metallica’s “One” to good use.
Netflix’s Marvel TV universe has seen great success and fan appreciation with their four original series — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron First — and latest ensemble miniseries The Defenders. But one of the biggest surprise hits to come out of this universe — specifically from Daredevil — has been Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle aka The Punisher, who is now getting his own spin-off series.
Netflix has released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming series, Marvel’s The Punisher. Watch the teaser called “Demolition” here below.
