By Creative Media TimesFrank Castle is back to work, as Marvel Entertainment has now released the official trailer for “The Punisher” season 2.

The Punisher season 2 is brings back Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, who after receiving a pardon for his crimes in season 1 is back in action. Though the trailer didn’t reveal a lot, he is most likely doing a rematch with villain Billy Russo, known as Jigsaw in the comics.
Also in the series are Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim. Floriana Lima as Krista Dumont, Annette O’Toole as Eliza Schultz, Giogia Whigham as Amy Bendix, and Corbin Bernsen as Anderson Schultz.
Although Netflix has cancelled some of Marvel’s series, including Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil, the action packed series of The Punisher has been generally received positively by critics. Along with Jessica Jones, they are the last of the remaining Marvel series in the streaming platform.
It should be noted of course that Disney, which owns Marvel Entertainment, is set to launch its own streaming service.
