also who else was mad as a wet cat when hunter and bobbi weren't in the framework

I don't think there will be Netflix / Agents of Shield crossovers. Although trying to find a tonal middle ground between Daredevil and AOS would be amusing.

just watched the trailer. I think Bernthal is perfect as Frank but you couldn't pay me to watch that. I don't know how they managed to fumble these shows so badly. what a missed opportunity.

Gotta admit that I feel pretty :? anytime I see a trailer like that now. Felt the same way the other day when I finally saw a Death Wish trailer. It's nothing I haven't seen in a billion different movies, many of which I did and still do enjoy, but I guess I'm a lot more taken aback by the idea that blasting a dude's head off with a shotgun while he lies on the ground is acceptable entertainment after everything this country endures every year.

The soldiers that get Punished in the teaser aren't wearing any identifying markings, so I'm assuming they're actually privateers and not US military

Either way, this is some of the grossest, most tonedeaf marketing that I've seen in a long while

Plus using an anti-war song, I mean, isn't that a little, uh...

I guess it'll give Gerry Conway something to talk about again.

Does anyone actually like the Punisher as a character, even? This is exactly the kind of show he deserves and I'm happy to see it get the reaction it's getting.

Hate this character so much. When he got punched in that Runaways comic was the best thing.

It just depends on who's writing him. If you're not going to make him the bad guy or the boogeyman, I'm out.

Don't get into his head, don't make him sympathetic, and ffs don't make him a Chatty Cathy.

In the 80's when he was a super turbo minority killing machine the comics were entertaining in a popcorn-turn-off-your-brain kinda way, but haven't aged well at all

Since then he's had a couple really good arcs, namely the Big Boss Punisher-Greg Rucka run, but yeah his history is mainly very :-? especially the early killing gang members/drug dealers kinda stuff

I'd never wear a Punisher shirt but I'll definitely download and read his comics for free

punisher was huge in the 90s, probably only second to wolverine in popularity. ghost rider might've edged him out a bit, but i'm thinkin top 3 at minimum

I forgot what run it was.... oh yeah the leadup to FrankenPunisher where the Micro character was a skinny punk dude who turned out to be Jigsaw's sonToggle Spoiler

FrankenPunisher was cool just for how over the top B movie the whole run was. Like, where else are you gonna see the Creature from the Black Lagoon get his head blown off by a shotgun, only to return a couple pages later because his brain is near his stomachToggle Spoiler?????

pretty sure early punisher has him going after a bunch of corrupt cops, so this seems to be in line with that but moving it to the fed level kind of like a hydra story.

edit: yeah, Year One he wants the NYPD to solve his family's murder, but they are all corrupt so he fights the NYPD.

5/5 and to top it all off, Karen is in it, which doesn't help.

I bailed on DD halfway through S2 and haven't watched LC, IF or Defenders. Doesn't seem like I'm missing much.

I always loved the staccato guitar/drums in One, because it conjures up guns and shells flying everywhere.

It's just so perfect that the trailer director decided to time the machine gun sounds with the song, just in case we didn't get it.

Guys, they're saying that darkness is imprisoning the Punisher! All that he sees is absolute horror!

Looking like initial reaction to the inhumans is so bad, the show may never air.

Id forgotten it even existed until i saw an ad in a back issue saying it would premier september 1.

whats the tipping point for deciding to eat the cost of a turd like that rather than just air it somewhere? like its the concern damage to the brand?
