Marvel and Netflix have revealed the episode titles for the first season of Marvel's The Punisher.
Earlier today, the official Twitter account for the series began tweeting out messages in Morse code. The first of these, once decoded, reads "3 AM," leading to speculation that this was the time when a new trailer would be released or a premiere date announced.
However, several more Morse code tweets followed. With there now being 13 coded tweets in total, the same number as there will be episodes in the first season of the show; it would seem that they are actually episode titles.
The episode titles ares:
- 3 AM
- Two Dead Men
- The Judas Goat
- Cold Steel
- Front Toward Enemy
- Virtue of the Vicious
- Danger Close
- Memento Mori
Some of these titles are clearly emblematic of the military component to Marvel's The Punisher, which dives into Frank Castle's past in the armed forces.
Frank Castle is an ex-Marine and was a family man. That all changed when a botched police operation intended to bring int he weapons dealer known as Blacksmith cost Castle his family. From that day forth Castle has been a vigilante seeking out and punishing criminals wherever he can find them. As the Punisher, Frank Castle uses any means necessary to dish out lethal justice to criminals in New York City.
The Punisher is based on the Marvel Comics character created by Gerry Conway, John Romita Sr., and Ross Andru, who debuted in Amazing Spider-Man #129 in 1974. Originally intended as a cautionary Spider-Man villain, the Punisher's relentless, hardline vigilante tactics resonated with certain fans and turned him into a cult favorite. He has since starred in several ongoing series from Marvel Comics and three previous live-action movies: one starring Dolph Lundgren in 1989, another starring Thomas Jane in 2004, and Punisher: War Zone starring Ray Stevenson in 2004.
