‘The Punisher’ Set Footage Released Looks Into Character’s Origins
New set images from Marvel's upcoming web television series "The Punisher" recently came up, giving fans a sneak peek on Frank Castle's solo outing. Based on the shared shots, the first few episodes may deal with Frank Castle's gun-slinging vigilante.
Some of the pictures for Marvel's "The Punisher" spinoff series include Jon Bernthal's Castle in the middle of a gunfight donning a military outfit, possibly looking into the titular antihero's past. Another picture from IGN also has Castle holding his iconic bulletproof vest with a can of spray paint nearby, hinting that the skull logo has just been placed.
Aside from Castle, other characters could be seen on the shared footage from "The Punisher," like Ebon Moss-Bachrach's Micro and Deborah Ann Woll's Karen Page. Bernthal and Woll, who first appeared in MCU's "Daredevil" series, also share a scene together, indicating that they will be working together at some point.
On the other hand, Karen Page is not the only existing MCU character to make to jump into "The Punisher." According to Comic Book, an image from a magazine featured the former soldier Castle with his gun pointed at the back of Turk Barrett's head. As it appears, Barrett was previously seen on other MCU shows, particularly "Daredevil" and "Luke Cage."
Additional material for the Netflix show was revealed as well. With the signature skull logo front and center, Netflix released a poster for "The Punisher", along with the tagline "The Truth Must be Taken." The poster, however, does not share the exact release date of this original series only that it is to air in 2017.
Netflix's "The Punisher" focuses on the story of the tough-as-nails Frank Castle and his brutal form of justice. Created as a spinoff series from Marvel's "Daredevil", his initial appearance on the Netflix show was positively received, warranting a series of his own.
