We finally have our first full-length The Punisher trailer, and make no mistake: Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) is out for blood.
From the looks of the trailer, the Netflix series adheres to Castle’s comic’s origin: a man driven to become a murderous vigilante after his family is slaughtered.
But instead of the Mob being responsible, it looks like the government has a hand in the murder of Castle’s family, especially with the revelation that the CIA, FBI and Department of Homeland Security are all after him.
It all looks intensely dark and darkly intense, in line with all of Netflix’s Marvel series. Here’s the synopsis:
“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.”
