A seemingly confirmed release date for Marvel’s The Punisher has Castle dropping the brutal on us in less than a month.
For months, it has been rumored that the first spin-off series from the Marvel Television and Netflix deal would premiere its first season sometime in November. Au contraire, a report from Heroic Hollywood/a> (via Slashfilm) says today.
A post on Reddit, HH covers, reveals an image from the latest print edition of the magazine Total Film, dated November 2017. With little fanfare, a blurb in the mag about the upcoming Jon Berthal-fronted series declares that it will appear on Netflix on October 13th.
Less than a month away, it seems rather odd that Netflix wouldn’t have revealed the premiere date yet to promote the series even further.
It also seems like a missed opportunity of sorts, as Frank Castle was highly skilled Marine and the United States Marine Corps celebrates its 242nd anniversary on the 10th of November. Despite the violent and obsessive nature of the character, many Marines embrace the Punisher as one of their own.
November 10th is also a Friday, the day of the week Netflix typically tends to release its prominent original series.
So, what do you think? Are we getting punished on Friday the 13th? Or are they gonna hold out until the Beaver Moon month?
