Very good, I loved it! Why couldn't TJ's first film be that cool?

Pretty good, Thomas Jane would have made a good Reacher!! wonder if this is intended to test the water for a TV pilot?

Taken from Frank's thread but I thought I'd also put it here-

That was some Punisher Max stuff there, that was great

Hope he does more of these.

It was a shame that the film was not up to that level.


Nothing to see here.

That was awesome, always liked Jane as the Punisher even if the film wasn't up to scratch. I'd love to see him reprise the role on the big screen...failing that a few more shorts wouldn't hurt.

Yep, that's what we need. The Punisher was all about the extreme stuff. This was great. I thought ripping off The Dark Knight's music actually was to it's detriment. More please TJ.

Aside from the Batman music and the very brief skull-logo reveal at the end, there's nothing at all in there that would trouble a copyright lawyer (you could have the kid react to what's on the shirt but not actually show the audience - we'd infer what it was and the effect would be pretty much the same). It's a short about Thomas Jane doing his laundry and going vigilante. He uses the word "punishment" but that's not the same as using the word "punisher" and he's never named as Frank Castle. Clever lad.

Punisher's had a hard time on the big screen. Jane's was the best (and Jane is a solid actor if you ask me. He's fantastic in Stander). Always thought James Wan could make a great Punisher after seeing Death Sentence, but that's just one man's opinion. I like this short very much. Would pay to see a feature-length version for sure.

Hope the right people notice and appreciate this. The rights reverted back to Marvel, right?

... as did the rights for Blade. No doubt, if they want to include those 2 in the cinematic universe they will need to lose their R ratings. But many fans will argue that Punisher without the violence simply isn't Punisher. Maybe they should expand Marvel Knights into it's own alternate universe? That would be sweet. Punisher, Blade and Ghostrider in an alternate Avengers-style dream team (or would that be nightmare team?)

Thomas Jane IS The Punisher - 17/7/2012 5:14:22 PM

wow, what an excellent surprise! Is he fishing for another Punisher movie? Or maybe Marvel are secretly testing demand for another movie? If so brilliant job. Jane must be in his 40s, which is prolly Castle's age in the comics, so still perfect. The original movie was great despite it's flaws, mainly coz of Jane: "God's going to sit this one out!" haha!
Castle is the yin to the superhero yang, and would be awesome seeing him guest star in another Marvel movie. Yes please to another Punisher movie (but only with Jane)!

That felt very Chris Nolan for some reason, i hope there's a sequel to Thomas Janes Punisher because that was truly spectacular.

Did I just see the awesome Ron Pearlman? I can't picture he, not to mention the others, doing this just for fun and the hell of it. Besides, they are seasoned actors, they'd surely know the risk of using copyrighted music and scores and the like.

There has got to be more to this.

Maybe this is a sly nod to Nolan taking over a new Punisher movie. After all Nolan does deal well with the dark, real, vengeance, retribution stuff. Jane, I like ya.. but you are not right for the role.. stevenson fit the character much better... curious to see where this is going!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a truly tough bottle of jd.....a few smacks around some heads, then launched like a missile into someones face, smashing to the ground and still not damaged. Thats just the bottle; i would hate to think how strong the drink is :)

Really enjoyed that, except for the rubbish cgi blood. Love a mini series or antoerh Punisher film that holds no punches. If Perlman is there too then they could strike gold.
