Netflix has finally announced the release date for The Punisher in a new trailer for the show, which had been reported as being delayed following the tragic events in Las Vegas. A panel at NYCC was cancelled, and the widely rumoured October release date was in question. Now, the series starring Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle will hit Netflix on 17 November.
Here’s the new trailer:
It does feel like there’s more of an emphasis on Frank helping people and righting injustice in this trailer, as opposed to just blasting Metallica’s One and shooting people while screaming. Obviously, there can be both things, but it’s a fact that the show will be coming out in a sad and difficult climate. Fingers crossed that creator Steve Lightfoot and his team have put together something special.
