A new Punisher movie coming? Looks like a probability and I bet Ray gets the part based on what people are saying about Ray vs Thomas Jane. Hope they slow down the body count a bit, though  :pullo:

SDCC '10 | Marvel Studios regains film rights for the Punisher

    * Posted on July 25, 2010 - 07:01 AM by Sean T. Collins


punisher_skull"Frank Castle is under the roof of Marvel Studios now and we hope to bring him into the fray shortly." As our sister site Spinoff is reporting, that's what Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced to the crowd during the Marvel movie panel at the San Diego Comic-Con last night. This appears to mean the Punisher is now as much a potential part of the Marvel "Cinematic Universe" as Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, and the rest of the Avengers gang.

Previously, film rights to the Punisher had belonged to Lionsgate, which made two Punisher movies -- 2004's The Punisher, starring Thomas Jane, and 2008's Punisher: War Zone, starring Ray Stevenson. The latter film was the source of much behind-the-scenes controversy, with Jane departing the franchise and rumors of strife with director Lexi Alexander. Like the Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, Blade, and Daredevil films, Lionsgates' Punisher movies were made outside of the control of Marvel proper. (As was, of course, the infamous Roger Corman-produced, Dolph Lundgren-starring version from 1989.)

Feige's brief statement appears to be the only info about the Punisher making his Marvel that's out there, so it remains to be seen exactly how and when he'll join the fray.

Cartoon Network should have a show of Volstagg and The Punisher, and Ray can play both parts sort of like "The Patty Duke Show".

Comic-Con 2010: Marvel Announces 'Punisher' Is Back Under Their Watch

We covered the Marvel panels rather thoroughly here, but there was one more surprise on the way, as booed Marvel Chief Kevin Feige claimed that the toxic "Punisher" brand name, which has survived three underperforming films is now back in Marvel hands, and the gun-toting vigilante will make a re-appearance in the onscreen Marvel universe (the character was played by Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson, in the previous three iterations).

Could he pop up in "The Avengers"? Or are they planning yet another solo voyage for the character no one seems to love? As one of the seven people who saw "Punisher War Zone," we do hope they keep Ray Stevenson aboard, but we assume Marvel will lowball someone entirely new.

Would they bother doing yet another reboot film? They could, but as this astute Deadline observer writes, what's really the point? "The problem with making a movie about The Punisher is that the story is the same as every violent, grade Z vigilante/revenge movie every made. The character surged to popularity in the late '80s and died out after a couple of years. I donít see why we have to keep bringing him back to the big screen." Amen.

A new Punisher movie and/or a TV series may be in the works according to this article. I have seen quite a bit about it since Ray mentioned he has signed a 3 pic deal with Marvel (now part of Disney)

Hi Everybody!

It's been a while since my last post...but I digress.

1. I became a fan of the Punisher in a sort of reverse cycle by seeing the 2004 movie first, THEN reading the book. I thought that in order for Frank Castle to be the Punisher, he would have to have past military experience. Thomas Jane did have this as either a Green Beret or Delta Force. It may not be the same as a Marine (Ray Stevenson's portrayal), but it was better than being a simple cop (Dolph Lundgren), where there was no mention of military background.

2. Both of the movies made in the 00's decade did have plot elements that were related to the comic. Warzone did more of this while 2004's movie went with a different origin while still retaining some degree of relativity to the book. This is ALSO where the 1989 movie fails as it has nothing other than Frank's family being killed to do with the book.

3. Until I saw Ray Stevenson portray the character, I thought Thomas Jane more or less "Nailed It." But the major problem with Warzone was that it "had" to be so campy in order for it to be so violent. The 2004 movie did not have this problem (Not as much, anyway), although it may have been less violent than Warzone.

4. I know that Ray Stevenson expressed concern to Lexi Alexander about the consequences of making a "serious" Punisher film, which I can agree with. But that doesn't mean a Punisher movie should be so over the top campy that makes the audience say "What The Crap?"  :huh:

In my opinion...

There should be a balance of campy humor seen in Warzone along with the serious tone present in the 2004 film. If Ray feels comfortable with a realistic tone, then by all means, he should play the part. If it's out of his comfort zone, then I would give Tom Jane a second chance at the role...BUT THAT'S JUST ME!  ;D

I've only ever seen a little bit of the Thomas Jane Punisher film. But I think TJ does a fine job in the HBO series 'Hung'.

Of course I think Ray is wonderful.  :crush: (no kidding  :idea: :hmm:)

So if anyone wants to take another stab at The Punisher .... :brutus: ... Good luck to them! I don't begrudge Thomas Jane and I think Ray can do a great job, as long as there is something promising to base a film on.

...Tough business these days.... Hey! Maybe there could be a "reality" show in which The Punisher knocks heads as a bouncer at the Jersey Shore as the job which pays his bills. Maybe he could be the long-lost cousin of the Kardashians known as "KaPowie!"   :P ::)....As if all the reality shows aren't at least somewhat scripted.

A day without Ray is like a day without sunshine.....Worse, actually. A day without sunshine would save me having to put on sunscreen.

Hey Mor Doh!

I hope some day there is a "real" Punisher movie.  I never knew about The Punisher until RS got the role, but when he did, I made a real study of The Punisher.  My particular favorite of all the Punisher versions is the MAX series.  The MAX series has everything these "genre" films should have:  interesting and topical plot lines, well-developed characters (both good guys and bad guys), plenty of action, violence appropriate to the difficult themes explored in The Punisher books, and a sprinkling of sex that never interfers too much with everything else going on.

I didn't think too much of any of the Punisher films, but naturally I thought Ray Stevenson nailed the character better than either of the previous two.  I don't think he should worry too much about setting a poor example.  Does Arnold Schwarzeneggar have this worry?  I don't think so!  Speaking of Arnold, his film, "Commando," is a pretty good example of what Punisher films should aim for.  RS could do this just fine, if he doesn't wait too long.  :whistle: :cool2:

Just sayin'.

Hi all  :wave:

Didn't Ray indicate in a recent interview that he had work in the pipeline for the next couple of years, or did I speedread wrong?!

That could possibly mean the long awaited Rome movie *dribbles in anticipation* and perhaps a new Punisher film too?

I'd also love to see him in something like the reported new film The Sweeney *shut it* [Brit joke] with Ray Winstone *has delicious visions of Toooooony Baynham*

i love the punisher but its too violent for me normally.Rays performance is the saving grace as he brings the humanity to it .Colin Salmon and Dominic West were good in it and its good seeing the British boys doing well.The action side was amazing partic the chandellier bit.Out of all the characters hes played,you would want frank Castle to rescue you. Hes a one man army.
