From a song choice that’s also a comic book reference to that pinball fight callback, here is every Easter egg and reference we found tucked away in Season 1 of …
What is your favorite Easter egg or reference in Marvel's The Punisher: Season 1?
No Stan leeNo point
And he uses 'Castiglione' for his new identity, which was his original surname in the comics.
They understand the Dorian Gray reference was also a nod to the actor playing Billy. He played Dorian Gray earlier in his career.
So many Breaking Bad cameos
How can a character so brutal and the most adult Marvel character be a character that first appeared in a Spider-Man comic lol one of the kid friendliest heroes in Marvel.
What a great season… bout time an actual good show comes out…
There's a scene where frank said that new york does not forget. A reference to the invasion of the chitauri in avengers (2012)
The Easter egg about Billy reading Dorian Gary may be a reference to his previous role as Dorian gray in the Movie "Dorian Gray".
he was made to pick going "home" with his wife or staying where he is, kinda paralleled the vietnam punisher
Totally cool sweet great video too…excellent job.Thank you..
I read The Picture of Dorian Grey, and I watched the film. It was definitely an Easter Egg for those that knew he played Dorian in the film, but there are also parallels between Billy and Dorian
There's in error in one of the easter eggs. Frank spray painting the skull insignia on a vest is not a reference to the 2004 film, it's a reference to 1994's Punisher: Year One which is where this is originally seen and in turn referenced in both the film and Netflix series.Sorry, I'm a die-hard fan who couldn't help notice and get the real facts out there.
Ben Barnes actually played Dorian Gray in 2009.
Billy Russo reading the book on Dorian Gray could also be a reference to the actual actor (Ben Barnes) having played the role of Dorian Gray in the live film adaptation (2009)
Turk is The Watcher
In my opinion Jon Bernthal deserves Emmy for this. His acting is so good and it's just not him btw, most of the actors and actresses really played well.
I thought Tom Hardy’s the only one who’s great at grunting. Jon’s scream is awesome too.
Dude IGN step outside catch these hands for them 30 sec ads you have on each video
Throughout the season i just couldn’t wait to see billy’s face ruined. Hell i got I wanted.
I noticed that pinball dead guy reference. Glad someone else did too.
Didn't notice Billy was reading Portrait of Dorian Grey, coincidentally, he played Dorian Grey in a movie.
There was a part where he hung up a solder which was also done in the dolph lungdron movie where that happened in the mansion at the beginning of the the movie.
No mention of Brett Mahoney? He's made quite a few appearances across the Netflix shows as well. We've even seen him go from a beat cop to a detective.
The show was kinda of slow paced, but it had a solid plot, good acting and chemistry, and a great villain. I would've liked to see The Punisher have another shootout or 2. Overall I give this an 8/10 and place it in 3rd place on the Netflix Marvel chart behind Daredevil and Jessica Jones S1
Just finished episode 10 and you mentioned Billy Russo,I had to click away …..I have a feeling he's going to be Jigsaw
God I hate Billy but he is was such a beautiful man.
I'm pretty sure that the actor that plays billy russo also played as dorian grey in another movie.
There's a newspaper in Karen Page's office who said "Battle of New York". It could be a Avengers 2012 reference.
The Castiglione last name Frank uses as an alias comes from a War Journal story when Frank goes to Sicily and learns that his family originally emigrated from there and changed their name to Castle. I was really hoping he would use his other alias from the comics Charles Fort.
There was a black bolt Easter egg in 3rd episode
There was a full metal jacket easter egg in the episode where Frank, Billy, and others are selected for Cerberus. After the briefing, Bill says, "So does this mean Ann Margaret isn't coming?". A line that Pvt. Joker gave during a briefing in Full Metal Jacket.
Ben Barnes also played Dorian Gray.
I'm surprised Punisher didn't ask Karen how Murdock was doing since in season 2 he talked to Karen about her love life with Murdock and since frank knows matt is daredevil it would've been cool to see where that conversation would've headed since both frank and Karen know matts secret
I am home.
Heres the thing, where was spider-man when all those bombs went off
the spoiler alert made me pee a little in my pants
you forgot that the actor who plays billy also played dorian grey in a movie
Awesome series of The Punisher I can take punishment and dish it that's why it was great but need more dishing out the punishment.
sadly though…the MCU is not connected to or in the same universe as the Netflix marvel tv series…
This series gives me serious Breaking Bad vibes. It was so engaging, easily binge worthy just like B.B. and it’s handling of the characters was objectively better that Daredevil Season 1 in my honest opinion. Also, Midani was a pleasant addition which was surprising, since she wasn’t in the comics.
How come William Russo and William Rawlins names are both William, but they are called Bill and Billy?
