Frank Castle, better known as the Punisher, is undoubtedly the most controversial ‘superhero’. In fact, the show itself is controversial. With its heavy gun violence and Frank’s lack of hesitancy when it comes to killing, he’s not exactly what you think of when you think ‘superhero’. At best, he’s an anti-hero. At worst…some would view him as a villain.
That’s what everyone feared when the first season of Netflix’s The Punisher was announced. But that fear was quickly put to rest. Frank only kills those who have killed. Whether his methods are right or wrong, good or evil, he has a strict moral code that he never breaks. It’s hard to hate a guy who only kills bad guys. But ultimately, it’s the villain that makes us root for the hero. And Billy Russo, or Jigsaw, as he’s now known, is unquestionably a villain.
Season 2 of The Punisher drops on January 18th, and for the past week, Netflix has given us a new glimpse into the highly anticipated new season with each passing day. From posters to teasers, they’re spoiling us. And finally, on Thursday, they dropped a full trailer. And it’s even more intense than we expected.
Season 2 of The Punisher promises to be bloodier and darker than the first season. Billy Russo is back, with a scarred face and an unhinged mind, ready to take another shot at Frank. And we all know he’s not Frank’s only enemy. Russo has an army behind him, each sporting a mask similar to his own, and at the end of the trailer we watch as they punch, kick, stab, and shoot Frank Castle over and over again. Things aren’t looking good for Frank, but as we know, he’s survived worse. If anyone can come out of this alive, it’s Frank Castle. But will he lose more people in the process? We’ll have to wait and see.
