The Punisher has locked down a release date. Get ready to sit your ass down for non-stop entertainment come November 17th.
To announce the release date Netflix has released a new trailer that focuses a fair bit on Frank Castle’s (Jon Bernthal) past being used and abused in the military. It spends a lot more time fleshing out the story opposed to the killing and mayhem we’ve seen in the past. This is probably for the best, especially in light of current events.
Other than an appearance of Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) which we’ve known about for a long while, there’s not much to tie this into the greater MCU. I doubt we will see any of the Defenders in this series, especially with Daredevil presumed dead. The more I see from the show the more interested I get. I’m not a huge fan of the Punisher but I sure do love Jon Bernthal’s performance. He’s an incredible actor and I’m excited to see what he brings to the table.
The Punisher hits Netflix on November 17th. Are you ready?
