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.
