When “Marvel’s Daredevil” introduced Frank Castle in Season Two of the series, fans had every right to be skeptical. The violent, anti-hero of the comics had faltered in two previous big screen interpretations, but the third time was truly the charm. Jon Bernthal’s tortured and disgraced war hero blazed a bloody and bullet-ridden trail through Hell’s Kitchen, bringing along an intriguing mystery and backstory that eventually lured Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) onto his side.
It seemed like a no-brainer that Marvel and Netflix would give The Punisher his own series (can Elektra be next?), and the new series promises to dive deeper into what turned Frank Castle into The Punisher. According to the official synopsis, after exacting his revenge on those responsible for the death of his family, Castle uncovers a conspiracy in New York that goes deeper than just his own loss and lack of justice.
“Marvel’s The Punisher” is still being coy about the release date, but the trailer does promise it the new series will drop in 2017. Watch the trailer below:
