The Punisher Comes To Collect In First Teaser Trailer

Netflix rewarded fans who binged straight through The Defenders with something dark.

The streaming giant attached the first teaser for The Punisher series to the end, giving us our best look yet at the next Marvel series. Although it's brief, it gives a good indication of just how tortured Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) really is, and how surgical he can be with a sledgehammer. We also get flashes of Castle's time with the Special Forces and what he's done to earn the Punisher name.

Bernthal reprises his role from Daredevil, and he's joined by Ben Barnes as Jigsaw, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Micro, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, Michael Nathanson as Sam Stein, Daniel Webber as Lewis Walcott, and Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle.

For those unfamiliar with the Punisher, he's a vigilante who wages a one-man war on crime after the murder of his wife and children. 

Meanwhile, The Defenders, which brings together Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) is on pace to break binge-watching records for Netflix. But while the Punisher obviously has ties to Marvel's street-level superheroes, we probably shouldn't expect to see him join the team in a second season.

The Punisher is set to arrive at some point later this year. In the meantime, take a look at some Punisher facts you may not know.
