Ladies and gents, we have a new trailer for The Punisher. In addition, Netflix also provided us with an official release date. The Punisher series will be released in its entirety on the 17th of November, 2017. That’s just in time for my birthday! Woop!
I’m going to be fair here and warn you that the trailer does actually cover a lot of the details from the series. Netflix tends to do this as they have confidence in their ability to tell strong, captivating stories despite some details being delivered in the trailer. But yeah, watch the trailer at your own risk.
This trailer is wild man, and it goes all the way back, exploring the origins of Frank Castle. We all may be feeling some superhero fatigue, but at the end of the day, we’re seeing the origin story of an antihero here, not a classical hero.
This makes it more interesting because as most people will be aware of, The Punisher is known for his extreme methods and severe violence towards bad guys. Netflix has promised a much harder R in the rating, with violence surpassing what we’ve seen in the other Marvel Netflix shows.
A lot of the promotional material was put on hold when the shooting in Las Vegas took place, because of the fact that The Punisher is all about them guns, and I guess the marketing department felt it would be inappropriate.
What did you think of the trailer? If you dug it, please share this post!
