It’s fitting that the subtitles on the first teaser for Marvel and Netflix’s The Punisher includes a lot of “[muffled grunting]” because that about sums up what we see: Frank Castle wielding a fearsome sledgehammer while voiceover-ing about painful memories and the past being the devil you sold your soul to.
It’s a short teaser but definitely sets the tone for a series about avenging lost loved ones:
Hannibal’s Steve Lightfoot will serve as showrunner. The series stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle/The Punisher, Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Micro, and Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani; Deborah Ann Woll will also cross over Marvel series to appear as Karen Page, building on Frank’s role in Daredevil season 2.
The Punisher is expected to premiere on Netflix this November.
