Netflix has released a bloody new trailer for its next collaboration with Marvel, “The Punisher,” and has finally unveiled the show’s November 17 release date.
“The Punisher” spins out of last year’s second season of “Daredevil,” in which violent vigilante Frank Castle clashed with slightly less violent vigilante Matt Murdock.
Jon Bernthal returns as Castle and Deborah Ann Woll reprises her Karen Page character, who spent several episodes of “Daredevil” digging into the conspiracy surrounding the murder of Castle’s wife and children.
The trailer suggests a heavy focus on Castle’s past in military and the consequences of his actions then in the present, particularly an interrogation video uncovered by hacker Micro (Ebon Moss-Bachrach). It also introduces a female government agent (Amber Rose Revah) who is trying to track down the Punisher.
Perhaps more importantly, there are explosions and gunfights. Many explosions and gunfights.
This is the sixth series featuring street-level Marvel Comics heroes released on the streaming service. Most recently, Netflix released an eight-episode run of “The Defenders,” featuring characters from “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage,” and “Iron Fist.”
All 13 episodes of “Marvel’s The Punisher” begin streaming November 17 on Netflix.
