The Punisher Season 2 Photos Unmask Billy Russo's New Face

Billy Russo can't escape the consequences of his actions. In The Punisher Season 1 finale, Frank Castle got his revenge on his former brother-in-arms, who had a hand in the death of his family. As a result, Russo's face was dragged along a broken mirror, scarring him for life. While that season closed without revealing the damage, new Season 2 photos have unmasked him at last.

Two photos center around Russo. In one, he is seen wearing a white mask covered in doodles during his recovery process; in the other, he sits at a table, unmasked and baring the scars from his climactic battle with Frank. Two additional photos focus on Frank as he makes his way through a dark forest and stands silhouetted by shadows.

In Marvel comics, Russo was a brutal assassin. He regularly performed work for the Costa crime family, who were inadvertently responsible for the death of Frank Castle's wife and children. Russo was ordered to kill anyone possessing knowledge with the murder of Castle's family, which brought him into conflict with Castle himself. During his fight with the Punisher, Russo was pushed through a glass pane, leaving his face horribly disfigured. Afterward, he changed his nickname from The Beaut to Jigsaw and became Castle's archenemy.

According to the official synopsis for Season 2,

Former marine-turned-vigilante Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) has been living a quiet life on the road until he suddenly becomes embroiled in the attempted murder of a young girl (Giorgia Whigham). As he is drawn into the mystery surrounding her and those in pursuit of the information she holds, Castle attracts a new target on his back as new and old enemies force him to confront whether he should accept his destiny and embrace a life as The Punisher.

Arriving January 18 on Netflix, The Punisher Season 2 stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle, Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim, Floriana Lima as Krista Dumont and Giorgia Whigham as Amy Bendix.
