Frank Castle Goes Violent in 'The Punisher' New Promo

Jon Bernthal's titular character kills a group of soldiers one by one with a knife before delivering a message to his real target.

AceShowbiz - Another promo for Marvel's upcoming series "The Punisher" has landed online. Lacking plot details, the 30-second promo highlights Frank Castle's (Jon Bernthal) killer instinct as he goes against a group of soldiers in the woods.

The footage, which is captured with a shaky camera, shows Frank killing the soldiers one by one with a knife. Wearing a hoodie, he then says to the camera, "I'm coming for you." It's unclear whom his message is directed at.

On "The Punisher", after exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York's criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.

In a recent interview with EW, Bernthal revealed how Frank on the new series would be different from the one we saw on "Daredevil" season 2. "The Frank Castle you see in 'Daredevil' is reeling from the trauma of having his family killed, so the only thing he knows is his mission to kill every single person who's responsible for his family's death, and killing them in the most brutal way possible, because that's the only way to quiet the storm that's in his head. He can only quiet it momentarily by taking these people out," he said.

He continued, "He's a man on a mission again [on 'The Punisher'], and what ['Punisher' showrunner and 'Hannibal' alum Steve] Lightfoot is trying to do is ask the question 'What do you do when that's over? What do you find out about yourself when you realize there's nothing left? What is his purpose?' There's an introspective bent in trying to figure that out. He finds something to fight for, something new to believe in."

Bernthal also talked about Frank's relationship with Micro (Ebon Moss-Bachrach). "He [Steve] forces these guys who are so unbelievably different, who operate on such different planes, and have such opposite skill sets [together]. Interestingly, they have very similar paths as far as their families, and as far as the predicament they're in, and they're sort of forced to work together," he teased.

The actor went on claiming that the show would be "as dark and as brutal a place as you've ever seen in the Marvel world."

The show will be released sometime this fall on Netflix.
