Having taken revenge on those who took the lives of his beloved family members, Frank Castle returns to action in his own Netflix solo series The Punisher, with the show serving as the latest collaboration between the streaming service and Marvel.
Now known throughout New York as The Punisher, Frank realises that his journey of destruction is far from over when he undercovers a deep conspiracy that runs further than just his city. If he’s to overthrow this criminal organisation however, he’ll have to face some of the toughest challenges of his life. When somebody has nothing to lose though, they’re willing to put it all on the line for the greater good.
This week, Netflix have unveiled a slick new character poster for Frank, which shows the vengeful character looking stern and ready to take on the world. Check it out below:
Executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal), Jim Chory (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage) and Head of Marvel TV, Jeph Loeb (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage), the series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
Jon Bernthal returns to the role of Frank Castle aka The Punisher, and is joined by stellar cast members Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Deborah Ann Woll (Daredevil), Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, Jasron R Moore, Daniel Webber and Paul Schulze.
Judging by what we’ve seen from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and the series that saw all four of those heroes team up, The Defenders, The Punisher is going to be a dark and gritty drama that refuses to pull any punches. That’s something that works very well with the character of Frank Castle, who is renowned for being one of Marvel Comics’ most vicious and unforgiving figures.
Netflix has been teasing its subscribers ever since announcing there would be a solo Punisher series, refusing so far to reveal the full premiere date for the show. Whilst we do know that it’ll come to the streamer before the end of the year, whether it’ll fall in October, November or December is still to be revealed.
For now, we’ll have to keep our eyes peeled and ears open for any news. Stick with Female First to find out all the latest on The Punisher as and when we get it.
