The latest edition to Netflix's Marvel universe, joining Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, is The Punisher. Played with ferocity by Jon Bernthal ( The Walking Dead, Sicario), this new series sees main character Frank Castle exact revenge for the death of his wife and kids, while uncovering a mountain of bullshit in New York City's underworld.

Netflix has been sparing about releasing small teasers about the show, but in this new trailer you get a window into Castle's family life and the tragedy that pushed him to a life of vengeance.

Like the rest of the Marvel characters Netflix has brought to life, The Punisher is a complicated anti-hero but this series is markedly different in its tone and is expected to be more violent and intense. The trailer alone takes his brutality to the blood-spattered edge of the Marvelverse.

The full series premieres on Netflix later this year.
