Seeing as Marvel’s Netflix Punisher turned out more nuanced and thoughtful than its bullet-ridden trailers would suggest, we’re not surprised they’d pull the trigger on Season 2. Frank Castle will be back in action before you know it, and the first teaser is already here.
The nature of Westworld’s time-turning twist made it unlikely certain Season 1 characters would return, but prepare for a blast from the past. A dangling thread from the finale may yet be resolved in Season 2, now that at least one major character is returning.
If you thought three new Marvel series in one year was a lot take in, Netflix sure isn’t going to make The Punisher easy on you. Get a look at the full cast with new photos from the forthcoming spinoff, but are we any closer to a premiere date? The suspense (and bullets) are killing me!
We don’t yet have the clearest picture of how Marvel’s Netflix Punisher spinoff will fit in with the other Defenders series (beyond a 2017 premiere), but at least its cast is hard at work. See for yourself, as the full assembled roster behind The Punisher stands tall, not punishing things in a new cast photo.
This is the sort of week that makes a film critic questions their life choices: First, the Wachowski’s choppy, incoherent ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ and now the long-delayed (and likely soon-forgotten) ‘Seventh Son.’ Its trailer boasts that it comes “from the production company that brought you ‘300: Rise of an Empire,’” which is sort of like trying to convince someone to eat in a restaurant because the manager used to work in an Olive Garden. Isn’t January supposed to be the month where all the bad movies get dumped? The clunkers are spreading to February like a fungus.
