The Punisher: Frank Castle returns with a vengeance in violent new teaser
Netflix has released another teaser for The Punisher! (Unfortunately, it’s not the brutal footage that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con)
The intense 30-second clip, which was tagged onto the end of The Defenders season finale, features Jon Bernthal’s haunted and vengeful anti-hero monologuing about the torments of the past as a flurry of shots preview the violent action (Bullets! Explosions! Torture! More bullets!) that’s heading our way when the show hits Netflix later this year.
“All the things that I’ve done, memories, they never hurt me,” says The Punisher in the trailer. “But the past, it’s more than memories. It’s the devil you sold your soul to. He’s coming. He’s coming to collect.” Ominous, right?
One moment that stands out in the teaser is the shot of Frank being tortured by men in uniform, which confirms what Bernthal told EW at San Diego Comic-Con in July. “I think with Frank and with the world that he’s very much involved in, he’s a soldier, so I think there will be very much a military component of the show,” said Bernthal. “It will be somewhat centered on that… I think that [the] Frank Castle that was in Daredevil is not in Punisher.”

The Punisher — which also stars Daredevil‘s Deborah Ann Woll, Ben Barnes (Westworld), and Ebon Moss-Bachrach (Girls) — is expected to premiere this fall on Netflix.
