The Punisher Trailer Has Fans Both Banging & Scratching Heads

Metallica gets fans pumped, but the release date tease is torturous.

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.


FRANK CASTLE IS A HEADBANGER IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE

“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.


EVEN HATERS ARE IMPRESSED

The Punisher may have won back some fans after the dismal Iron Fist and underwhelming The Defenders.

Or it may have attracted entirely new fans who never cared about Marvel shows before.


IT LETS YOU KNOW THE PUNISHER IS VIOLENT

Maybe it’s not Punisher: War Zone violent, but these two minutes were more brutal than entire seasons of Daredevil or Jessica Jones. That’s not for everybody.


IS THIS REALLY THE FRANK CASTLE YOU WANT TO SEE?

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?


CAN THE PUNISHER EVEN SUSTAIN HIS OWN SHOW?

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.


IT JUST ROCKS

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


BUT WHEN IS IT ON?

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 Punisher premieres this year on Netflix.
