My Predictions for Marvel's The Punisher.


There is no doubt that the hype for The Punisher TV show is building. Just look at what was released yesterday. A teaser video and official poster both containing the Punisher skull made up of confidential files torn up to censor names and words that leads to the truth behind what is the CIA is hiding, 12 screenshots showing all of the characters appearing in the series, not to mention the official synopsis which tells of a big conspiracy that Frank must uncover every which way he can.
On my Punisher Harp Zone Twitter account (@franksharpzone) I’ve been making a few predictions about what’s going to happen in the show. One prediction I made has something to do with the guitar scene that Frank will appear in. Perhaps there will be more than one guitar scene in which one of them will show Frank doing a musical number where he plays his guitar and sings a song. What song he’ll sing is anybody’s guess. Whatever the song he’ll sing, I would like it to be original and chart topping. Sure he may know some tunes on the guitar, but perhaps he’ll make up a song that will be an original and perhaps a chart topper.

When they do Season 2, my wish and request for Jeph Loeb and the makers behind The Punisher TV show is to create a scene where Frank actually plays the harp. Maybe he’ll play the harp for Karen Page and sing a song for her. Perhaps he’ll be playing a large concert harp, or on a smaller harp he can easily carry around when he’s not on the road to punish the guilty. Maybe next season they will have Frank play the harp and make beautiful touching music just like the speech he made in the graveyard scene in Daredevil Season 2.
Speaking of graveyard, I made a second prediction where the flashbacks that will be shown in The Punisher will include flashbacks to the most iconic scenes shown in Daredevil Season 2 such as the graveyard scene where Frank gives his touching monologue to Daredevil, the courtroom scene where Frank loses it, Frank’s epic courtroom entry, the epic prison battle scene, the casual chat with Karen at the diner, and the ultimate take down of The Blacksmith (aka Ray Schoonover).

Then I went over to a local salon for some great hairdo. There I made another prediction: I bet anything that when Frank grabs a hold of Billy Russo and showed him his reflection in the window,  he will blare out “Remember this face!” just before he throws him though the glass window face first. What an epic scene it will be! It will indeed lead up to the “creation” of Jigsaw, Punisher’s arch villain who will swore revenge on Frank for ruining his face.
Will the show have Max, Punisher’s dog, appear again just like he did in Daredevil Season 2? Will it have a scene similar to a scene in Punisher Max: In The Beginning where Micro converses with a captured Punisher about some strange force of darkness that was affecting Frank during the war, and Frank giving Micro the hard truth about how the CIA has been starting wars for personal gain?

"You kill because you like it, Frank."

“You kill because you like it, Frank.”

Frank tells the hard truth.

Frank tells the hard truth.

And how about seeing Agents Dinah and Sam have the same attitude and traits as Detectives Molly and Martin in the comics?

There’s no doubt that Punisher will continue to utter the phrase “One Batch. Two Batch. Penny and Dime.” as he brings serious punishment to those responsible for the great CIA conspiracy that Frank will do whatever it takes to uncover the truth behind it all with the help of Micro and any means necessary to expose it all in the exciting much anticipated Marvel/Netflix series The Punisher that will air on Netflix in due time this Fall.
