    Well, after the credits rolled for the final episode of The Defenders S1, we got our first official teaser for The Punisher. Link. It looks like, as many guessed had already guessed, that we're going to get a season which has a good deal of focus on Frank Castle's involvement in the middle east, and, possibly, the aftermath of it in NYC, past what we already saw in DD S2. The whole theme of the teaser is memories, which could mean that it's much more flashback heavy than other seasons of Marvel's Netflix series have been thus far, definitely interesting. Other then the few flashes of Frank in military garb, possibly killing some unknown woman (though we can't tell for sure if it is Frank) and fighting with someone it appears is receiving medical attention, we didn't get too much.

    Thoughts? Those of you who have read the recent iterations of the Punisher comics, have any ideas?

    I'm 100% hyped for it. Punisher is my favorite Marvel character and he was the best part of DD season 2. Can't wait, this gon' b good.

    I hope this is better than the other Netflix Marvel shows. Honestly it's the only character that I know. I care fuck all about DD and the others.

    That was very, very John Vick...

    I get it that it was probably heavily inspired by the punisher, but that was a dead dog away for being a trailer for John Vick 3: we couldn't get Keanu, so here is this Boondock Saints extra.

    Looked promising, but I thought the logo shot undermined the tone; the implication that he'd spent time hammering it into the ground himself genuinely made me lol. Still, he was one of the best bits of DD 2, so I'm sure this will be worth a look.

    As long as he's like straight vigilante justice on motherfuckers I'll be content. I don't want like heads exploding, but like a nice beating someone to death scene because they won't stop resisting will be nice.

    The entire point of the Punisher is that his punishments are permanent. He argues so himself in his DD appearance. He says that if you don't kill criminals then it doesn't work because they'll just keep doing what they did

    There's a pretty compelling argument (here) that this ironically makes the Punisher the most moral character in the entire Marvel universe.

    If you want a good idea of what he's like, watch the first four episodes of Season 2 of Daredevil. He's featured a bit later on in the season as well, but you get a pretty good idea of what this interpretation of him is like in the first four. Oh, and here's a clip of arguably his best fight scene that we've seen so far.

    Edit: I was going to go through and try to parse what we know so far with what we saw in the trailer, but this guy has already done it. Emergency Awesome. Fair warning, there's fairly heavy Daredevil S2 spoilers in that video; if the guy is correct in his assumptions, some mild spoilers for the Punisher S1. Also also, he has a pretty good guess for the release date for S1, November 10th.

    I'm starting to feel lonely here, guys. Also, battle van! More interesting then it seems at first glance, I think, since it could be indicative that this series is going to be a bit more campy then people had perhaps anticipated. All I hope for is that it doesn't go the route of Iron Fist: campy where it shouldn't be l, and stone cold serious where camp would be appreciated.

    I'm not saying the Netflix marvel shows couldn't do with a bit of tonal variety, but this doesn't seem like the series to try it with. Still, you never know.

    Fuck me, that was amazing. Whoever did the sound design on this should get a raise. Doesn't hurt that's on the list of my all-time songs, but it just fits. I'm almost worried about how much I'm excited for this, considering the way the last few series they've done have turned out.

    That might be the best fucking trailer I've ever seen. I love the Punisher, and until Jon Bernthal came around I didn't think anyone else could do it justice. The hype train is running full steam ahead.
