So many people get hurt in the bloody ‘Punisher’ Season 2 Trailer

Published

on

“Frank Castle is back for another round of morally gray murder in Season 2 of Netflix’s The Punisher, and based on the above trailer, not much has changed.

Castle, played by Jon Bernthal, is loaded up with a whole bunch of guns and guilt in the trailer as he goes after a gang of masked villains the only way he knows how: bullets and a low, gruff voice.

“I’m not the one who dies, kid,” he grumbles, “I’m the one who does the killing.” It’s reminiscent of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s greatest ’80s action movies.

The Punisher Season 2 bursts onto Netflix on Jan. 18.”

Captain Marvel, the first female-led MCU film, is edging ever closer to release.

A new trailer for the film dropped during the college football National Championship game on Monday, revealing a little more on what we can expect from Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers.

There’s a glimpse and an explanation of who the shapeshifting Skrull are, plenty of power punches and photon blasts to boot, plus an amusing ribbing of the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo with Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson.

It’s the film’s third trailer, following on from the electrifying first and second trailers released in the last few months.

Captain Marvel is out in theaters Mar. 8, 2019.
