We think it's safe to say that a lot of dudes prefer their Netflix with a side of action, but the whole superhero trope just gets a little, well, YAWN after awhile. How many times can we sit through the same tale of good guy meets up with other good guys to defeat a bad guy who met up with other bad guys?

Pretty freakin' badass, right?! In the event you're unfamiliar with the history of The Punisher, no worries. We've got you covered! As per the Marvel Universe Wiki:
"Born in New York to parents of Italian ancestry, Francis Castiglione is a former U.S. Marine Captain. Before Frank joined the Marines, he was studying to become a Catholic priest but changed his mind because he was unable to forgive those who did evil. Also prior to his enlistment, he married his wife Maria who was already pregnant with their first child.
"During his time in the United States Marine Corps (USMC), Castle graduated from Basic Training, then went on to Infantry School. Immediately following that, he went through the USMC's Reconnaissance, Force Reconnaissance, and Sniper Schools."
To find out how he transitions from a military man to neck-snapping vigilante, you'll just have to watch. While there's no set release date, Netflix has confirmed The Punisher will be released some time in 2017.
