Original Article:

Are you a night owl? Well, Marvel certainly hopes so, because according to the official Twitter account for Marvel's THE PUNISHER, the studio will make an announcement extraordinarily early on Tuesday morning. 

Here's a look at the coded message that, when decoded, reads "3 am.":



What does it all mean, though? That's what a lot of Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) fans will be asking themselves for the next several hours - which is exactly what Marvel wants. Could it be another trailer or perhaps the premiere date for the highly-anticipated series? With those suggestions on the table, there is also a rumor circulating around the web that another Marvel hero may appear in THE PUNISHER; so maybe we'll discover who that is when the promise of new information is revealed?

As we'd previously learned in Marvel and Netflix's DAREDEVIL Season 2, Frank Castle is haunted by his past, and hunted by many after the tragic murder of his family. As his way of working through the pain, Frank becomes a vigilante known in the criminal underworld as "the Punisher", who aims to fight crime by any means necessary. He's the sort of dude you don't want to run into when walking down a dark alley. Hell, you wouldn't even want to bump into him in broad daylight. Actually, you know what? I think it's safe to say that you'll never want to meet face-to-face with Frank Castle. For real, this anti-hero is typically not good for your health.

With Steve Lightfoot as its showrunner, THE PUNISHER is the first full-blown Netflix series to spin out of one of their core Marvel programs, DAREDEVIL. The Punisher character is based on the Marvel comic book character created by Gerry Conway, John Romita Sr., and Ross Andru, who unleashed Frank on the world in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man #129 in 1974. Castle was originally invented as a cautionary Spider-Man villain, though Spidey fans were so enamored with Frank's tragic tale that the character went on to star in several ongoing series of his own.

While we still don't have a release date for Marvel and Netflix's THE PUNISHER, I would imagine that we'll be hearing about one real soon. Until then, be sure to catch up on the latest street-level offering from the "Big 2" comic book publisher, THE DEFENDERS, which is now available to stream on Netflix.

Extra Tidbit: Jon Bernthal's Frank Castle was my favorite aspect of DAREDEVIL Season 2.
