Marvel’s The Punisher is set to ambush Netflix soon (we hope)

by Eric Frederiksen | September 13, 2017

Frank Castle, better known as the Punisher, doesn’t call his enemies before he takes them down. No, he ambushes them. And it’s seeming more and more like the show itself, Marvel’s The Punisher, is getting ready to do the same this fall. We have another teaser and more set photos. We even have the episode titles. But Netflix is still leaving that release date redacted.

Just give us the date already!

All we really know is that the show is coming this year. We can pick up on a couple more clues, though, to narrow it down. Deadline notes that the show is making an appearance at New York Comic-Con at the beginning of October, so it’ll likely be after that. We also know that the second season of Netflix’s massive hit, Stranger Things, is coming on October 27. It seems unlikely that they’d want to make two of their most anticipated shows fight each other. A mid-October date is a strong possibility, though they could make us wait until November.

Frank Castle joined the Marvel Netflix Universe back in 2016 when he butted heads with Matt Murdock in Daredevil‘s second season. There, Castle was focused solely on getting revenge on those responsible for the death of his family. In his standalone show, things are getting bigger than just his family:

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.

Marvel’s The Punisher is one of our most-anticipated Netflix shows, so this whole “redacted release date” thing is killing us. Maybe that’s the idea. Maybe Netflix wants us to be dead, like the Punisher’s enemies.
