Properly, Marvel followers, The Punisher lastly bought a launch date on Netflix, regardless of it seeming like we would should wait longer for the anti-hero’s first standalone enterprise on the small display screen, given recent real-world tragedies. However the streaming large locked down precisely once we’ll get to put our eyes on the brutal drama, and it appears to be straight difficult comedian e book leisure rival DC Comics. The Punisher Season 1 shall be launched on Friday, November 17, which is similar weekend that the superhero team-up flick Justice League will hit the large display screen. Properly performed, Marvel and Netflix.
Anyone studying this story undoubtedly is aware of that there is a level of (largely arbitrary) competition between live-action Marvel and DC initiatives, and so it is onerous to think about The Punisher‘s November 17 launch date as something however Netflix poking the DC bear with a sledgehammer. In any case, Justice League is likely one of the most highly anticipated comic book movies of the 12 months, of the last decade, and of the century. So to debut one among Marvel TV’s most hotly sought-after exhibits on the very same day is as wild a transfer as Netflix has made but with any of its programming. It additionally makes us ponder what THAT crossover would appear like, although we won’t see Frank Citadel being very accepting of Aquaman’s glee.
Whereas a TV present’s debut usually would not have a lot of an impact on a blockbuster movie’s launch, particularly when it occurs on a Friday, that is not essentially the case with The Punisher and Justice League. Contemplating Netflix shall be placing all 13 episodes of The Punisher out without delay, rabid followers will doubtless burn via them in that first weekend, which legitimately may not depart any time to come out to the theater for a Justice League screening till the subsequent week or one thing.
Conversely, followers who need to see Batman, Marvel Lady, The Flash and extra all teaming up collectively will doubtless push again their Punisher viewings till later. (And given how superhero movies usually get a whole lot of repeat clients, some folks may hit the theaters greater than as soon as in that first weekend.) Whichever method it goes — and we doubtless will not know any specifics about the way it goes, given Netflix’s reticence about unveiling its viewership knowledge — we’re to see how the 2 mega-projects do when going head-to-head on that weekend.
The discharge date was introduced in among the best methods doable, too, because it got here on the finish of a model new Punisher trailer that’s positive to get followers blood flowing. (In a great way, although, versus how Frank Citadel’s enemies’ blood flows.) You may take a look at the emotionally wrought badassery beneath!
So bear in mind to set your loudest alarms for Friday, November 17, at 12:01 a.m. PT, as that is when The Punisher will smash everybody’s lives up on Netflix with Season 1. And, in fact, future Justice League viewers members can buy their tickets for screenings that will even begin up on Friday, November 17. Anybody needing to know when all the things else is hitting the streaming service and the small display screen quickly, head to our 2017 Netflix schedule and our fall TV premiere schedule.
