PC POST #363: It's confirmed! The PUNISHER makes his appearance in the Marvel's the DEFENDERS!

The most epic moment happened today when Netflix Korea posted a promo for Marvel's the Defenders we hear Stan Lee narrating with cool lines and at the end of the promo, we see Jon Bernthal's as the Punisher!

I believe the Punisher will make a small cameo in the series, much like what happened in Shadowland comic book, when he appears and rescues the street level heroes.

And this promo says it all when we hear the Punisher saying... 

"Looks like I got here just in time..."

I like to think that he will be "in time" to save the Defenders from some trouble.

Marvel's Defenders will hit Netflix on August 18, 2017. More news might leak during SDCC (San Diego Comic Con) this weekend.

PC POST #362: NEW teaser, logo and skull released for Marvel's the Punisher!

It took sooner than I thought the release of the new teaser for the upcoming Marvel's the Punisher tv series to be premiered on Netflix.

This teaser has only 7 seconds and it doesn't show more than the new skull and logo. There is no info about the release date, we only know it's in November this year.

I really like the new skull design, they clearly based on the skull from 2004 but the lines aren't so clear and sharp.

2004 skull

What I like more about the new skull is the detail, it looks aggressive and gives us the feeling that it's spray painted.

San Diego Comic Con is this weekend, we can only hope that a new trailer and release date can be unveiled.

PC POST #361: THE PUNISHER solicitations for October 2017!

Finally, it was released the Punisher solicitations for October by Newsarama and we are presented with a new and probably the most awaited series from a few years back!

Seat back.

The Punisher MAX: Platoon: #1 & #2

Garth Ennis (W) & Goran Parlov (A&C)

The Punisher was born in Vietnam, Frank Castle had already become a dark legend of the battlefield. Stories about him were told in whispers, if at all. Now the legendary Punisher team of Garth Ennis and Goran Parlov (PUNISHER MAX, FURY MAX) brings the first of those stories to light: the tale of Frank Castle’s first command and his first kill. Don’t miss this epic new series!
32 PGS. (EACH)/MAX/Parental Advisory …$3.99 (EACH)

The Punisher #17

Becky Cloonan (W), Matt Horak (A) Declan Shalvey (Cover)


• FACE was a live wire in the wilderness. In New York City, he’s an armed bomb…
• And THE PUNISHER is all that stands between him and 8 million souls…but he’ll have to blend in with high society to do it.
• A confrontation we’ve been building to since issue #1, and Frank Castle in a TUX! You ALREADY KNOW you CAN’T miss this!
32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

It's curious that there is nothing about The Punisher#218: Frank Castle War Machine when most of the Legacy titles will start in October. Which leads me to believe that we will have that story later this year.
The Punisher: End of Days miniseries is not seen in this solicitations. We will probably get it next year.

PC POST #360: Punisher MAX: The Platoon teased by the Editor-in-Chief!

The long awaited miniseries was teased in the past few days by Axel Alonso on Twitter. There isn't not much about the comic itself, just a couple of panels with dialogues. But it was pretty cool just to read and tease all the fans about it.

Finally, we will get Garth Ennis back in the game with the help of Goran Parlov in the artwork.
It's been years since they talked about this project and you can learn about what happened and more details here.

We will see an earlier version of Frank Castle. It's the prequel of Punisher MAX: BORN, and we will see a "rookie" Frank Castle in his first tour in Vietnam.

There is no information about the release date of this miniseries, but I strongly believe that it will be released this year.

PC POST #359: The first official Punisher poster released and probably more in SDCC 2017!

Yesterday was a great day for every Punisher fan who was waiting for some news of the upcoming Punisher series.

Finally Marvel released this amazing poster with the artwork of Joe Quesada.

Joe Quesada drew this poster exclusive for San Diego Comic-Con 2017 that will take place next week.
He captured perfectly the dark and deadly place that Frank Castle lives in. Not to mention the high detailed sniper and the painted skull in his chest. 

Unfortunately, there is no information about the release date of this series, but it will be premiered in November. If I could guess, I would bet it will be in November 10th. But let's wait for the official word on it.
We are still waiting for a new Punisher teaser or a trailer, i'm still counting to see something in the SDCC!

Earlier this week 'the Punisher' director series Stephen Surgik gave an interview to Combat Radio and gave us a hint about the tone of the series.

It is different than the other Marvel shows as far as it is an adult drama. There are no superpowers. You know the Punisher is a character who is based on vengeance, fundamentally. His family is a victim of some horrific thing. But the character himself is well-known and the way that they approach it is very different from the other shows.
We can still continue to follow the Punisher's dark path of vengeance and tormented by the tragic events his family suffered.

I couldn't be more excited for this series!
