First Full Punisher TV Show Trailer Violates First Basic Rule of Punisher

Sigh. I should have expected this. They couldn’t get it right in the Punisher movies, they didn’t get it right in the second season of Daredevil; why should they get it right in the Punisher’s actual TV show?

Let’s see if you can spot it in this first full trailer! The show will arrive sometime this year.

The one thing that separates the Punisher from every other revenge thriller out there is that the Punisher isn’t out for revenge. The Punisher is out to punish!

Frank Castle is an ordinary man with an exceptional set of skills whose family just happens to get caught in the crossfire of a mob shooting, and who, in response, sets out to punish all criminals everywhere. Yes, at some point he deals with the mobsters who killed his family, but the Punisher is largely about attacking criminals who had nothing to do with his family’s deaths. That’s what makes him so dangerous! So compelling! That’s what makes him work so well!

But nope, apparently the show is is about some deep-seeded military conspiracy focused on Frank Castle himself, and he’s got to get revenge against those people. Sigh.

Call me if season 2 adapts The Slavers.
