Marvel Releases Cryptic Punisher Motion Poster and Brand New Images (VIDEO)
Frank Castle – a.k.a. the Punisher – exploded into the Marvel Cinematic Universe during season two of Daredevil, and proved to be a real menace to anyone who stood in the way of his vengeance. Now, the destructive vigilante has his own show hitting Netflix later this year, and based on the first released teaser, the punishment is far from over. Marvel has released a cool Punisher motion poster, featuring a few cryptic words that hint at the show’s premise.
In a video captioned “How deep does the cover go?”, the Punisher motion poster reveals a handful of “confidential” phrases and quickly blacks them out, a reference to the practice of military redaction. The words in question are “Operation Cerberus”, “Codename: Micro”, and “Kandahar”, the last of which has been previously teased as a possible episode title. “Operation Cerberus” is likely a military program that Frank Castle aligned with in the past, and “Micro” refers to the Punisher’s tech-savvy partner in punishment. Check it out below.

A new collection of images have also made their debut via Entertainment Weekly, giving a new look at the show’s protagonist played by Jon Bernthal, and Daredevil’s Deborah Ann Woll returning as Karen Page. The new images – including a better look at the full Punisher poster – can be viewed below.
Earlier last month, Bernthal expressed that it wasn’t his intention to pull any punches with his portrayal as the anti-hero. The Punisher series looks to be doing the same based on the official Netflix description:
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.”
