Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle was the highlight of Daredevil season 2. Marvel’s unhinged vigilante can be a tough nut to crack (and incredibly boring when cracked incorrectly), but this take on the character, deranged and broken and terrifying, felt like a home run. At least it felt like a home run during his limited screen time in a show about another Marvel hero. Now, we’ll have to see if he can hold up in an entire series built around him.
The first full The Punisher trailer has arrived online, offering an extended look at the latest Marvel series hitting Netflix this year.
The trailer is all about Bernthal, really. Cut and sweaty and glowering and constantly covered in the blood of his enemies, he appears to be giving the character everything he has.
The Punisher is run by Steven Lightfoot and stars Ben Barnes, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Amber Rose Revah, Deborah Ann Woll, Daniel Webber, Jason R. Moore, Paul Schulze, Jaime Ray Newman, and Michael Nathanson. Netflix hasn’t unveiled a release date yet, but the trailer promises that it will arrive at some point in 2017.
