The Defenders hits Netflix today, and with it comes a look at Marvel’s upcoming show The Punisher. Frank Castle was introduced in season 2 of Daredevil. He’s played by Jon Bernthal, who will reprise his role as the gun-toting Army vet out for revenge.
Various rips of the trailer are popping up all over YouTube, much like the one below. The teaser features Bernthal reflecting on the past in a voice-over while hammering away at a cement floor.
Netflix and Marvel greenlit the series last year, shortly after the premiere of Daredevil’s sophomore outing. Bernthal’s version of the character — a villain turned sympathetic antihero seeking justice for his family — was loved by fans and critics.
The Punisher will follow Castle as he continues to wreak havoc in New York, armed with many, many guns, an eerie knack for accuracy, and a superhero emblem worthy of your local Hot Topic. No word yet on whether or not the show will include a trademark hallway fight.
