Netflix drops gripping new trailer for its series ‘The Punisher,’ and with it comes the official release date which is November 17.
Starring Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, the crime-fighting vigilante taking revenge for the death of his family and then later uses violent and lethal ways in fighting the criminal underworld. The series is a spin-off of 2016’s Marvel’s Daredevil, also from Netflix where Bernthal’s also played the same character.
The trailer, set to a remix Metallica’s “One’ in the background, shows Frank Castle’s violent history coming back to haunt him including his military past in form of flashbacks. “What we were doing was wrong,” says Castle. Later we also see the CIA hunting him down.
When the character suits up as the Punisher, we see Castle in a collage of intense action scenes as he takes on the bad guys. There is a lot more focus on Castle’s vigilante persona than the overall brutality the character popularized in the comics.
Produced by Marvel Television and created by Steve Lightfoot, “The Punisher” has 13 episodes and also stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach (Girls), Jason R Moore (A Lonely Place for Dying), Michael Nathanson (The Wolf of Wall Street), Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood), Ben Barnes (Westworld, The Chronicles of Narnia), Amber Rose Revah (Emerald City) and Jaime Ray Newman (Bates Motel).
