We first met The Punisher on the second season of the Netflix Original Series “Daredevil” and he was an instant hit without a doubt. Played by Jon Bernthal from “The Walking Dead”, this was a Punisher that Marvel fans have been hoping to see brought to life. The first teaser from the upcoming show recently went online and I am sharing it with you below. Take a look.
The Premise: Frank Castle is haunted and hunted after the murder of his family and becomes a vigilante known in the criminal underworld as “the Punisher”, who aims to fight crime by any means necessary.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I place this trailer online, I should say that I am almost halfway through the latest Netflix series with the Marvel Cinematic Universe of characters in “Defenders” and while it started a little slow for me it got better. I will probably finish it by Monday if I play my time right. So what about “The Punisher”? Since this is only a teaser I am going to hold off on any larger opinion but say that I wonder how much of this show takes place before we meet him in Daredevil and how much takes place afterwards. We did only hear about his origin after all, so its probably something that the producers want us to witness so we can travel in despair with this antihero. They don’t really show that much in the teaser so I will hold off for the time being. I love that Karen Page from DD will be on the show and glad we are getting a Microchip character for Castle to work with. They had such a great dynamic in the comics for many years. What did you think of the teaser? Did it spark more attention for the character? Let me know down in the comments section below.
