@Bionder: Hopefully producers give Castle another chance and make a definitive badass Punisher film.

Yea Romita Jr makes me want to claw my eyes out but its still a good book

Its Romita? OMG, I hate one less artist than I did 5 minutes ago!

Sorry brain fart it was Steve Dillon not Romita

Thought so. It would be too good if it was Romita.

@Vance Astro: My question tho is why aren't his movies big action blockbusters, it has all the building blocks right in front of it



If they can get another big time action moive star that is right for Frank Castle/The Punisher with the good parts of WarZone which was the action and good story and acting og Punisher 2004 then that is your blockbuster right there.

@ReVamp: Actually I think it'd be cool he went after the Maggia or Gnucci crime family, keep super villains out of it all together and make it more like Punisher Max. Market it more toward the action movie fans but keep his character as close to his personality in the comics as possible to keep the fanboys happy (happy being a relative term because we all know they're never really happy with anything ever)



Thats what I said get a big time action movie star to play Punisher but add all the good from the 3 Punisher movies together and just keep out all the bad. I have Maggia, Gnucci, Jigsaw, Barracuda and Kingpin in each film as the main villian. With minor villians like the Russian, 2 drug dealer brothers Castle went after in Miami and the dude who was a former priest with a arm designed as a shotgun. Plus the father and son who ran the prostitution ring.

In my personal opinion they need to look at a punisher tv show because they could do well with it or they should introduce him into the daredevil tv show and then after a few episodes give him his own show movies are good but if you want to flesh out on a characters back story and get the origin right the punisher for example a tv show would be better and it would allow marvel to use a grittier setting instead of the formula their movies use.
