Over the past couple of weeks we’ve seen these “teaser” clips about the upcoming Netflix series “The Punisher” but now its time to get to the good stuff as the character who first appeared in the second season of “Daredevil” gets his own due. Check out the full Official Trailer down below. I’ll return with thoughts of course at the end.
The Premise: 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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Hell’s to the YES! This looks most excellent and appears will give us a nice solid origin backstory to The Punisher. We comic book fans know how he and his family “stumbled” into a mob hit and while that worked way back then, giving a deeper reasoning into his family’s and his own assassination makes for better television. Now he has a better mission and a direct target for all of the torment and anger that is in him from the loss. I also loved the use of Metallica’s “One” for the trailer. It’s nice that we get Karen Page involved in the show but I am hearing there will be no Night Nurse at all so bummer to that side of the news. Ms. Page is probably still reeling from the events that took place in “Defenders” and if you have not seen that series yet you are falling too far behind. Great stuff and I cannot wait until November. What a month that is going to be with “Thor: Ragnarok” and “The Punisher” for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and of course “Justice League” for the DC Extended Universe. What do you readers think about this one? Tell me you aren’t psyched, I dare ya. You can do it down in the comments section of course.
