Not too long after The Defenders was available to binge on Netflix, we got our first official look at the upcoming The Punisher series. It certainly was a great choice to market their next series after their big crossover event and the first teaser trailer did not disappoint. The trailer gave us small glimpses of what we can expect from the show, such as Frank’s time in the army and him mowing down criminals. Marvel did not just stop there, as we now also got our hands on a new promo shot showing off Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) in his full Punisher gear.
The last time we saw this vest was at the end of Daredevil‘s second season. If you look closely, this picture actually is from a scene that was shown at the end of the Stan Lee trailer from SDCC. He does not seem wounded, so going by that picture, he is about to head into some conflict. The heavy usage of shadows and his face paint could hint at an interesting action sequence. Castle taking down a mob that is hiding in the sewers while using the darkness to his advantage does sound like a thrilling scene. Moreover, this might be his very own version of the ‘hallway fight’ that has become a staple of the Marvel Netflix series.
What do you think of Castle in his Punisher gear? Where do you think this sequence might be heading?
