Marvel and Netflix have revealed yet another trailer for their upcoming spinoff series, The Punisher.

The trailers off a lot of the hard-hitting action we’ve come to expect from Netflix’s Marvel offerings, and this time, they even delved more into what we can expect from the story. It turns out that Frank Castle’s family was killed to get to him. Some government agency wants him dead in an attempt to cover up what he did in the war, and now Frank Castle himself is gunning for them.

It looks like a fittingly emotional and action-packed entry in the Marvel/Netflix franchise, and we think it has the potential to become one the strongest series to date on the platform.

The trailer also finally revealed the released date as November 17, 2017. The release date is something Netflix has been making some of a game for fans, with hints being dropped here and there. With everything they revealed, it was believed that the show would be dropping tomorrow. However, with the Vegas shooting still fresh in our minds, Marvel Entertainment and Netflix opted to push it back.

Luckily, the date isn’t too far back, and one has to wonder if this date reveal is a middle finger to Justice League, which hits theaters on that very same day. Maybe. Maybe not. Regardless, that’ll be one hell of a weekend for comic book fans.

    So, can you still get production money from the armed services if you portray them as crazed killers?

      As long as it’s cool.

      Marvel Studios has a bad record with armed services because of that, compared to Man of Steel and Transformers who always shows the Armed service as heroes as it’s all 9/11 backdrop but Avengers “Wait, we can’t fire a nuke into NYC.” Pulled their name as they did film an F-35 looking fuctional compared to it’s 1.5 trillion pricce tag

        Every time I watch “The Last Ship” I think , ahhh nautical adventure on the taxpayer’s dime.

        • Victor Roa

          I think that’s a thing….. on TBS?….. or is it like a musical with Debbie Reyolds and Gene Kelly where he’s on ship leave and they sing and dance the day on romantic San Diego sunset?

    This is what the punisher always was to me.
    I think he probably looks the least like the comic book character out of all versions but he seems to be the one that hits the nail on the head. Can’t wait for this.


    Can The Punisher please kill Daniel Rand (Finn Jones) this season so don’t have to keep getting trolled by the character in future Netflix seasons?
