Marvel's "The Punisher" to debut November 17 on Netflix

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 19:00:02 +0000

Netflix/Nicole Rivelli(NEW YORK) -- Marvel's The Punisher, the latest comics-based series to hit Netflix, will officially bow on the streaming service on November 17. 

All previous peeks of the show, which stars Jon Bernthal as solider-turned-vigilante superhero Frank Castle, had references to a debut date blacked out. 

The announcement of the premiere date was further delayed when the show's panel at New York City's recent Comic Con was cancelled out of sensitivity to the Las Vegas shooting massacre. 

Along with the premiere date, Netflix gave fans a final trailer today.

As with previous trailers, the new one is again set to Metallica's haunting "One," but this one shows more of Castle's Special Forces career, before his former comrades-in-arms turn on him and murder his family as part of a drug-trafficking plot.

The vigilante character with the skull icon on his chest first appeared on the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man in 1974, but the fan favorite soon spawned his own books. 

Bernthal debuted his bruising portrayal of Castle in Season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix.
