Marvel’s next Netflix show, The Punisher, is coming sometime in 2017, and we’re getting into full promotional swing for it. New images and teasers have been dropped over the past few months, and now a new short clip was posted on Twitter, showing Jon Bernthal in full revenge mode.

As you can see, the clip doesn’t give any story details away, just teasing the slick action and full-frontal action that the series will need to do justice by The Punisher character. Jon Bernthal showed audiences what he’s capable of in Season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil, and his solo series is sure to dig deeper into his great portrayal of a dark, complicated man on the run.
Marvel’s The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal, Ben Barnes, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Amber Rose Revah, Deborah Ann Woll, Daniel Webber, Jason R. Moore, Paul Schulze, Jamie Ray Newman, and Michael Nathanson. Here’s the official synopsis:
Frank Castle, known throughout New York City as “the Punisher” after exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his family, uncovers a larger conspiracy beyond what was done to him and his family.
Marvel’s The Punisher will stream all episodes on Netflix this year, the first Marvel/Netflix show since Marvel’s The Defenders.
6 R-Rated Comic Book Movies Audiences Deserve
Logan and Deadpool have shown studios that R-Rated superhero movies can succeed. Sure, Watchmen and 300 kind of proved that same point in 2009, but now both Marvel and DC have said R-Rated movies are a possibility. Audiences are tired of so many comic book movies featuring similar plots, so opening more projects to the potential of being R-Rated makes it possible that different, mature stories can be told.
Some characters, like Superman and Spider-Man, should never receive the R-Rated treatment. If a character is defined by a sense of hope or optimism instead of a dark, gritty core that grounds all their actions, then a R-Rated movie likely won’t work.
