Netflix has finally revealed the launch date of its latest Marvel superhero series The Punisher. The show will start streaming on November 17th, the same day Justice League premieres in theatres.
The new trailer for the 13-episode series gives us a brief look at Frank Castle’s (Jon Bernthal) origins and the abuse he faced in the military. Netflix has promised a much harder R in the rating and it shows. This looks like a classical “man with guns” revenge story. Bernthal blew audiences away with his debut as the anti-hero in Daredevil Season 2 last year and he is back to do justice to his own spin-off series.
In Marvel’s The Punisher, after exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
