Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Jon, happy birthday to you. On Jon Bernthal’s birthday, Marvel and Netflix released the first trailer for The Punisher solo series. Bernthal debuted as Frank Castle in season 2 of Daredevil, and fans have been waiting for a glimpse of this series ever since.
Set to Metallica’s haunting ballad “One,” The Punisher’s new trailer answers a few questions. but asks many more. Here are a few perceptive reactions to the trailer.
“One” is a good choice for The Punisher. Whether it’s in the actual show or was just a one-time use kind of thing, it represents the pain Castle feels having lost his wife and daughter. Then the heavy metal part sets the rhythm for The Punisher breaking heads.
The Punisher and Metallica go great together!

Just watched that Punisher trailer and spontaneously grew a soulpatch and expelled a cloud of Axe body spray.

Whoever thought the trailer for Punisher Netflix should open like a Staind video sure knows their audience.

That new Punisher trailer is the REALEST.
The post Jessica Jones Marvflix shows have failed to capture my attention. I hope this succeeds

Or it may have attracted entirely new fans who never cared about Marvel shows before.
😂 I'm guessing you can just go right into the punisher no problem. I love Jon bernthal so I may check it out

Oof. That Punisher trailer is right in your face with its harshness.

"Watch the bloody first trailer for Netflix's The Punisher" no thanks

Looks like Frank is rooting out a government conspiracy in this series. Is that really The Punisher’s wheelhouse? Shouldn’t he be going after low-level thugs?
Netflix Punisher trailer sees him mostly killing Amurcan govt guys which is a lovely barrier against Frankpropriation by Blue Lives fools
— Lewlew (@ServantofDagon) September 20, 2017
Also the idea of Frank going after the government bc they killed his family kind of takes away from the whole "Punisher" deal

Well that's one way to get me to root for the Punisher. Pit him against the CIA

The Punisher had no trouble maintaining his own comic book and even several spinoffs like “War Journal” and “War Zone.” The trailer doesn’t satisfy everyone about a solo series.
I like him very much as an actor. The Punisher won't work over a whole show dedicated to him.

netflix's the punisher looks so good i'm glad frank castle's going to be in the spotlight
— 💚mira💚 (@hiravias) September 20, 2017
so i do have hope for Punisher because he's that good of an actor. My concern is the character itself can't hold an entire series

The Punisher looks like it was made for people who think Spawn was a good character

You don’t really have to read into the trailer to love it.

No one could see the premiere date because it’s intentionally scrambled. Only the year is for sure so there will be a Punisher Netflix series on before the end of 2017.
The release date teasing on The Punisher was cute but it's just bare annoying now
— ellis (@SodieEvolved) September 20, 2017
I need a release date for The Punisher Netflix series. Why y'all teasing me😥
— K (@K_Gifted) September 20, 2017
If Netflix wants The Punisher's release date to remain a secret after the official trailer dropped, just make it happen this Friday…
— Steve Rennan (@srennan33) September 20, 2017
At this point I'm expecting The Punisher to just pop up on Netflix some random day.

The Punisher premieres this year on Netflix.
