First Footage From ‘The Punisher’ Shown At San Diego Comic-Con

Fans in attendance of The Defenders panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 were treated to debut footage of The Punisher, and reactions were shared on Twitter. The teaser was, reportedly, dark, bruting, and showed some of Frank Castle’s origin.

“I think with Frank and with the world that he’s very much involved in, he’s a soldier, so I think there will be very much a military component of the show. It will be somewhat centered on that… I think that [the] Frank Castle that was in Daredevil is not in Punisher,” said Jon Bernthal to EW at SDCC.


After the murder of his family, Frank Castle is both haunted and hunted. In the criminal underworld, he’ll become known as The Punisher.”

Steve Lightfoot is the showrunner, with the cast comprised of Jon Bernthal, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ben Barnes, Jason R. Moore, Daniel Webber, and Deborah Ann Woll.
