The Punisher is coming in hot, releasing an intriguing new teaser video that not only reveals the air date for Season 2 (18 January), but giving us a first look at notorious supervillain Jigsaw, played by Ben Barnes. Check it out:
Barnes follows Dominic West, who took on the role for Punisher: War Zone in 2008, but it looks like Marvel is going for a toned down version of the character in this version of the story. We can still recognise Barnes for one thing, but we don’t know how we feel about it.
Here’s the series synopsis for The Punisher:
After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
The Punisher Season 2 premieres on Netflix on 18 January 2019. Get all the latest superhero news with every issue of SciFiNow.
