A New Long, Dark Look At Netflix's 'The Punisher'

Fans of Marvel, Netflix, vigilantes, and inky darkness suddenly illuminated by fiery explosions, rejoice! Here’s a new trailer for The Punisher, serving up two and a half minutes of Jon Bernthal punishing people for… things!

Look, I don’t pretend to understand what’s going on anymore. Bernthal’s Frank Castle did some very bad things for the military, back in the day. His family was killed. He’s out for revenge, against the shadowy people who killed his family? Which might be tied to his time in the military? Because he witnessed something?

Whatever, there’s a skull on his body armor, and Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page is in it, and a character literally tells Frank, “Now the only person you’re punishing is yourself.” Which, like — MESSAGE! I’m obviously going to watch all of it, over the course of, like, two days, because it can’t be any worse than Iron Fist. And I genuinely liked Bernthal’s take on the character, even if I can’t really remember what happened in that season of Daredevil.

The series will finally hit Netflix on November 17th — which means I’ve plenty of time to figure out how to boost my TV’s brightness before then.
