The release date announcement had been in limbo subsequent to the horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas on October 1. Netflix and Marvel decided to cancel Punisher-related events during New York Comic Con and in Paris out of respect for the victims and their families (see “'The Punisher' Events Cancelled”). This isn’t to say there are no guns in the trailer -- this is The Punisher after all -- but by focusing on Frank’s past, Netflix seems to remain somewhat mindful of the catastrophe.
