The #SDCC Defenders panel is in session as I speak. But first before they got to the Defenders, Jon Bernthal as The Punisher was brought out on stage. There Jon along with Jeb Loeb, shows a few clips from the upcoming Netflix show The Punisher which we find…..
WARNING SPOILER ALERT!!!!
A flashback showing Frank teaching his favorite daughter how to play guitar! A guitar. Really! Why not a harp? Honestly I’d be blown away if they actually did show Punisher play the harp in one scene or two. Anyway, the guitar scene is nothing more than a flashback in Frank’s mind as he is sitting in a prison cell. Then other clips were shown such as Punisher shooting and running over 2 bikers, Punisher taking out Mexican drug dealers from far away, and Mickey Rawlin’s life, through Punisher, literally gone down the drain in a public bathroom with those nearby erroneously lead to believe that the 2 men were engaging in homosexual behavior (Gross!) while in fact Frank is literally flushing Rawlin’s life down the toilet…. by strangling him.
The guitar flashback part really kicked my adrenaline of excitement up a notch to 11. Although I wish they do a scene where Frank actually play the harp. Perhaps in a future episode in Season 2 of The Punisher we will actually see The Punisher play the harp in memory of his family. Especially of his favorite daughter. To be honest I don’t know if I can stomach the other scenes that will appear in The Punisher. That bathroom scene could gross me out. Nevertheless, I am really looking forward to seeing The Punisher show still.
To see what I’m talking about, here’s a link to this ScreenRant page that tells all about the clips from The Punisher.
