Though The Punisher has struggled in live-action in the past, Frank Castle was finally done justice when Jon Bernthal brought him to life in Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil. The character made his debut in season 2 and became an instant hit with fans, which led to him getting his own spinoff show. It’s set to hit the streaming service later this year and though it’s now done shooting, we really haven’t seen anything from it just yet.
Of course, the usual deluge of set photos have made their way online, but in terms of official promotional material, it’s looking like we’ll have to wait until Comic-Con to get that. In the meantime, though, we’ve got a very cool new poster to share with you today, which comes to us from Marvel’s Joe Quesada, who put it together in honor of the show recently wrapping production on season 1 in New York City.
As you can see below, the black and white artwork shows off all of the main characters, including the titular antihero, Micro, Karen Page, Jigsaw and several others. While it’s not as good as some footage or even a still from the show, it’s a solid piece of work from Quesada and nicely compliments the poster he did for The Defenders, which boasted a similar style. If nothing else, it acts as a reminder that The Punisher is now ready to go and the promotional campaign can’t be too far off.
At least, we hope that’s the case. Marvel’s been keeping a very tight lid on this one and we really don’t know anything about the spinoff aside from its cast. We assume that Frank Castle will be kicking ass and taking names like usual, and acting totally badass in the process, but plot details remain under lock and key and we’re curious to see how far the show dives into the titular hero’s backstory and how deep a look we get at the fascinating character. Daredevil started to peel back the layers just a bit, but now Marvel has a chance to dive even deeper, and we hope they capitalize on it.
Anyways, until we get more, have a look at this very cool new poster for The Punisher below and let us know what you think of it by dropping a comment.
