New Punisher Trailer Reveals Premiere Date

Marvel Studios and Netflix have finally revealed the latest trailer for Marvel’s The Punisher, that also includes our first premiere date for the series, which is officially set for November 17th, 2017.

There’s been a rumor for quite some time that Matt Ryan’s John Constantine would be making an appearance on season 3 of Legends of Tomorrow, and now showrunner Phil Klemmer has confirmed his appearance.

“We get Billy Zane and the circus [in the second episode]; we get a little Julius Caesar on the beach in Aruba in the premiere,” he told Rotten Tomatoes“We meet [new team member] Zari in this sort of dystopian future. We get to do a little Amblin alien episode back in the ’80s; we do some Jack the Ripper Victorian London; Golden Age of Hollywood; John Constantine doing an exorcism.”

We don’t know yet how the team will come across him, but his appearance is at least another bright spot in the never-ending story of Matt Ryan’s game-changing Constantine portrayal.

Entertainment Weekly has learned that Grammy-Award winning singer, Jill Scott, has joined The CW’s Black Lightning in the role of DC Comics’ villain, Lady Eve. In the comics, Lady Eve was a member of the Kobra cult, and it would appear that her on-screen origin, while a bit different, hints at that coming into play in the future.

“Eve will be the bridge between Tobias Whale and a secret group of corrupt leaders. Always a consummate professional, Scott’s onscreen alter ego presents herself in Freeland as the owner of a funeral parlor, but quickly becomes an adversary to Black Lightning”

Jill Scott also voiced Storm on the BET animated series for Black Panther, as well as Why Did I Get Married, 2012’s Steel Magnolias, and guest roles on Fringe and Being Mary Jane.

In an interview with Nuke The Fridge, Welling expressed his interest in possibly guest starring on The Flash with its vast multiverse making it ripe for the choosing with nostalgic actors. “I am willing to go on The Flash and I have a few ideas on how it can happen if the network asks me.

The best character in Punisher history is set to appear in the upcoming Netflix adaptation for The Punisher, and Jon Bernthal seems to be pretty excited about the prospect. The Battle Van is an oft-used mode of transportation for Frank Castle, that is loaded to the brim with defensive weapons, and an arsenal that could support an army. It also made for one of the coolest toys ever.

“They travel around in the Battle Van in the comics, so it was important for us to do our version of that,” Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb confirms on Netflix’s Media Center. “It’s not the Batmobile, but it’s definitely an iconic character that people know.”
