As an avid Netflix watcher, I have to say I was thoroughly disappointied with the Marvel franchise’s last couple releases.
I really enjoyed Daredevil, Jessica Jones and parts of Luke Cage, but both Iron Fist‘s standalone series and his appearance in the larger ensemble series The Defenders was nearly unwatchable.
That being said, Netflix/Marvel’s next TV series looks to be the most promising in a while. In a new trailer revealed today, Jon Bernthal is seen reprising his role as Frank Castle for their upcoming The Punisher series. Driven by the deaths of his wife and child, the vigilante will stop at nothing to get revenge, employing murder, kidnapping, extortion, coercion, threats of violence, and even torture to fight the criminals he finds responsible.
The new season sees Castle fighting his way through a deep government conspiracy, pitting him against Homeland security and the FBI. Check out the trailer below:
