The Punisher gives Justice League giant middle finger, releases same day


Also has fully-loaded, shiny new trailer

Because Netflix is the UN of media creators and publishers (i.e. masters of diplomacy, not subtle and not so subtle jabs), they've revealed The Punisher's release date, and it just so happens to be the same day Justice League and Ben Affleck's nipple-Batman II bow in theaters.

Since we're not getting Marvel vs. DC in any cinematic sense, this is probably the next best thing: a head to head release of an internet-based, paid subscription television series, and a blockbuster cinematic film. One can be measured in box office take and the other in likely not to be released viewing metrics. There will be a winner, no doubt, but we may need to declare them with arbitrary and snap judgement--so get ready to cast your vote come November 20.

Check out the latest trailer here and let us know your thoughts on it, The Punisher (and Netflix's Marvel universe), and this bit of scheduling snipage.
