THE PUNISHER is going after old enemies (and JUSTICE LEAGUE) with a new trailer!
Marvel continues its history of trolling the “distinguished competition” with the freshly announced release date for The Punisher Season 1 on Netflix.
The second trailer for the series, featured above, focuses on Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) and his dark history in the military before showing his team-up with Microchip (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) and their mission to take down the dark underbelly of government forces from their past.
This trailer has a little more reflection and a little less action that the first, but what really caught everyone’s attention was the final few seconds of footage, which reveal the show’s Season 1 release date on Netflix: November 17, 2017!
That date is also the release date for DC’s Justice League movie, meaning comic adaptation fans will choose between the film’s opening weekend and binging The Punisher right away.
This isn’t the first time a Marvel release butted heads with DC Entertainment. Captain America: Civil War was originally set to open against Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. When DC Entertainment changed the BvS release date back to March to avoid the issue, Marvel set Daredevil Season 2’s release for the same day. Clearly an intentional move, whether it’s genius or devious is still up for debate.
