The TV show is dead. Dodged a bulllet on that one.


This is a good thing. At this point, I figure they are probably going to water him down after the Disney buy-out and the sucsess of the other Marvel films, but this was just a bad idea from the start.

It would be kind of cool if Marvel would do something with the street level characters, try and get Daredevil and Ghost Rider back, and do what they did with the Avengers. Maybe toss in Iron Fist and Luke Cage...

Was a pilot ever filmed? I never heard anything about casting.

Glad it's dead, but I have an odd curiosity to have at least seen it once.

From what I've seen, it never made it that far. I think maybe a script, but as for casting, I have not seen a thing.

Can't argue with this. Dillion's work on Punisher MAX would have a looked a lot cooler if it stayed black-and-white.

I'd love to see it grayscaled or toned. I always thought the colouring on his work left something to be desired.

I concur. It seemed gradient-heavy instead of feeling like it was loved and given depth. There's something about those black and whites that seems to hold a good line there.

Or sepia toned. Dillon's work is pretty gritty and un-glamorous, it could use colouring to compliment it. Not taking anything away from the colourist, but the style is really just serviceable.

I agree with this 100%... but I happen to gravitate toward midcentury gloss (almost advert style comics) or gritty. Give me some depth in any case. Even if it's just purely stylistically, I need to be able to be sucked in. This is why Tim's work rocks. Texture, depth.

This cover kinda looks like it has Tom as Frank.

Frank Tieri's doing it, I like Punisher Noir and in interviews he seems to understand the character quite well. I say let them have some fun with the character every now and then in a mini-series.

I don't know, as long as it stays in it's own little mini, I'm cool with insanely dumb set ups for Punisher stories. I still love the Archie/Punisher crossover.

Yes, it's the idea that I'm not terribly open to, for the same reason I didn't like Moonraker as an idea. Frank Castle, like James Bond, work best for me when they are grounded and have a tone of darkness and crime drama. Ray guns just don't fit in the hands of either character IMHO. The story itself could be interesting, I love sci-fi.

I guess you guys will let me know. :)

Have I ever told you your costumes are about 20 different kinds of bad ass?

What? That was one of the best runs they've ever done. Especially in the 616 universe.
