Men wearing masks always mean danger

A masked man comes out of nowhere and kills Frank's family for some yet-to-be-revealed reason. Life will never be the same. In the Marvel comics, Frank's wife and two children are killed by the mob for witnessing a killing in New York City's Central Park.

The logo is created

The pouring white paint can only mean one thing -- the Punisher is creating his famous white skull logo. He uses it to both to intimidate his enemies and attract their bullets to the more heavily protected spot on his armor.

Serious weaponry

When the Punisher wants to strike at his enemies hard, you can be sure large guns will be involved. As a war veteran and a United States Marine Corps Scout Sniper, he knows his way around guns.

Shoot 'em up

In the trailer, this particular battle is fought completely in the dark, with only the gun fire illuminating the room. It's hard to see who's shooting, but the Punisher is most likely winning.

The Punisher

Covered in blood and dirt, Frank wears his DIY Punisher T-shirt proudly. Artist John Romita Sr. was credited for putting a large skull symbol on the Punisher's chest in the comics.

Vengeance keeps Frank fit

Frank isn't afraid to stop criminals permanently, which means a lot of blood gets spilled in the comics. Looks like that'll also be the case in the Netflix series.

Pick your weapon

In the trailer, these are the tools of torture used by the CIA in a covert operation Frank was involved in. Judging by the amount of blood, it looks like pliers were a favorite.

Welcome to Homeland Security

Ever since the Avengers made the citizens of New York City antsy with alien battles and a whole lot of property damage, it appears Homeland Security is keen to find the Punisher.

There's a familiar face

We first saw the Punisher (as Frank Castle) having to pay for his crimes in a court of law in "Marvel's Daredevil" TV series on Netflix. Now it seems that Karen Page, played by Deborah Ann Woll, is back at Frank's side as his friend and supporter.

Sliding over a cop car

You have to be brazen to slide across the hood of a police car while people are in pursuit. Here we see Frank doing his best "Dukes of Hazzard" stunt.

Geronimo!

Frank uses a fireman's hose to quickly escape a trap. This is one of the many last-minute decisions Frank makes in the trailer to ensure he stays one step ahead of the police.

Say your prayers

In this climactic moment, it looks like Frank might have to hang up his Punisher T-shirt forever.

Ready, aim, yell!

But as luck would have it, Frank comes out as the Punisher with his gun a blazin'. Now that's more like it!
