The show stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, an ex-Marine who earns his superhero stripes and nickname after doling out justice to avenge the death of his family. In the upcoming series, however, Castle’s military past returns to haunt him and he finds himself embroiled in a deadly conspiracy.
The new trailer for The Punisher teases plenty of intrigue and action. In flashbacks to his time in the Marines, Castle brawls with a commanding officer. When suited up in the present as the Punisher, he disposes hordes of hired goons in an array of creative and ruthless ways.
Bernthal first portrayed Castle/the Punisher in Season Two of Netflix’s Daredevil, though he sat out Marvel and Netflix’s recent Defenders series. The Punisher will also star Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Amber Rose Revah, Ben Barnes and Daredevil‘s Deborah Ann Woll, who reprises her roll as Karen Page.
