With only a few days standing between now and release, Marvel and Netflix have unleashed The Punisher‘s intense new promo, in which Frank Castle sets out to take some revenge, and he makes sure to leave no witnesses behind.
It’s a bit on the short side, but as you can see below, the anti-hero appears to be on the hunt here, seemingly pursuing the men who killed his family. Through a couple quick bursts of violence, he manages to take them out while muttering “One batch, Two batch, Penny and Dime.” Again, it’s not much, but it shows us what an efficient and brutal killer Castle is and should have fans exited for the upcoming premiere.
Of course, The Punisher is much more than just a 13-hour killing spree; instead, the Marvel standalone series will delve deep into Frank Castle’s military past, and his subsequent (and potent!) PTSD.
Here’s what Jon Bernthal had to say in a recent interview:
This is a real piece about grief; it’s about pain. What we ask in the course of this season is ‘What do you do next? What do you do with the war inside, and how do you face that?’
Looking at the bigger picture, though, and it seems future instalments of Marvel’s Netflix slate may be relocated to Disney’s own streaming service when it launches in 2019. Negotiations between the Mouse House and Fox have allegedly been placed on hold, so this proposed acquisition is far from a sure-thing.
But don’t fret; all 13 episodes of The Punisher will be available to stream via Netflix from November 17th.
