Marvel's The Punisher Release Date Pits It Against Justice League


However, the streaming platform finally revealed in a new trailer Thursday at that "The Punisher" Season 1 will be released on Friday, Nov. 17. Naturally, it's bloody brilliant.

Buckle up. This show is going to be darker and provide more action than any of the previous Marvel shows on Netflix. Marvel and Netflix also never officially confirmed any release date for The Punisher, in October or otherwise, until today, so it's very possible the November release date was what they would have announced at NYCC.

You just can't keep Frank Castle down, and fans can get excited for the character's big return with Netflix's brand new trailer.

Once again, be sure to check out this series exclusively on Netflix. After careful consideration, Netflix and Marvel have decided it wouldn't be appropriate for Marvel's The Punisher to participate in New York Comic Con. Some DC fans cry foul at Marvel dropping The Punisher on Justice League's release date. Consider it a worthy appetizer while you wait for the next month in order to see the show play out in its entirety. The latter is a Hulu show (premiering November 21) based on Marvel comics about a group of teenagers who discover their parents are evil. The series follows Frank Castle after the events of Daredevil season 2 as seeks vengeance against the shady government agents who killed his family and hunts for the truth about his past.

The series is executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot ("Hannibal"), Jim Chory ("Marvel's Daredevil", "Marvel's Jessica Jones", "Marvel's Luke Cage") and Marvel's Head of Television Jeph Loeb ("Marvel's Daredevil", "Marvel's Jessica Jones", "Marvel's Luke Cage"). It's pretty much a plot you would expect to see in a comic book film about an anti-hero vigilante seeking vengeance.
