  1. I agree with the majority of this. Frank Castle should never be a PG13 character. Just because a character is in a comic book doesn't automatically make him/her pg13 or kid friendly. Even the original TMNT weren't kid friendly. I think there are versions of Batman that are, but the best Batman stories are not for kids. By kids, I mean anyone under 13. Teen being up at a midnight screening or reading No Man's Land is okay, depending how involved the parents are. Take it from me, my 10 yr old daughter had a Leatherface night light...... just kidding.
  2. Would I be stupid to suggest an animated Bad Planet movie or series?
  3. If you want a pg13 Punisher, have him make a cameo in a pg13 movie like Spiderman or Capt. America, as his first comic book appearance was in a Spidey issue. If the reaction is positive, do a solo Punisher film at pg13... But that's a steep hill to climb. And if they're doing a pg13 flick, there's a good chance they'll op for a younger or more currently popular actor... I'm not supporting any Punisher movie without Tom because I saw first hand at Comic Con how much the guy loves and wants to be that character. Until then we may have The Cleaner webseries.... Whatever I can do to help the Raw Studios family. I'm in.
  4. Perhaps to a degree. Disney owns Marvel and I can't help but think they have some branding and creative influence. After having worked at Disney studios for a bit, I know they are very protective of the Disney brand and since Marvel is their pride n joy purchase, they will Disney'fy to an extent. I'm not sure how much creative freedom Marvel projects have under Disney, that's what it boils down to. I think?
  5. Pulp Fiction is technically Disney, but under the Miramax flag. That was a Weinstein bros deal. Miramax was sold I think in 2009 or 2010 from Disney. Pulp Fiction was released in 94 but I think it was bought at the 93 Cannes Film fest, but Miramax was purchased the year before or in 93 - I think Pulp Fiction was already a done deal when Miramax was bought by Disney - could be wrong. I think if Disney retains the rights on The Punisher and decides to release it as a standalone movie, PG13 (likely), it wouldn't work. The early Punisher work was indeed PG13 by comic standards, however I think most of the fans, including myself, would want a MAX version of the story, which is R. Also, even if they were to make a PG13 Punisher, I think they know it will fail and be panned by loyal comic readers as Frank Castle's best stories where during the MAX story arc. There's just no sugar coating it. ...and with the sad situation that happened earlier this morning, I doubt Disney wants that kind of character/movie under their banner. It would be years before we'd hear Disney doing a Punisher movie. It's just that The Punisher isn't a glossy, sci-fi, fantasy guy... he f'ing kills the crap out of bad guys and those guys are humans, mostly. So that would have to be R, by MPAA standards, if you do it right. Just my two cents. I enjoy the back n forth. It's always great to hear the other side of things.
  6. I think LGE still retains The Punisher rights.... I'll ask around.. Nope, LGE lost the rights, they went back to Marvel/Disney - however, Marvel could sell the film rights back to another entity, Sony, Fox, LGE as everyone knows a PG13 Punisher would never fly - and Disney would want nothing to do with that property. So business-wise, Marvel can make more $$$ by auctioning the rights off. That's the best way to do it. The Punisher doesn't really fit in their universe as it is. The only character Marvel/Disney should make a play for, and they won't, is Spider-Man.
  7. Is TJ going to do The Small Ones? PLEASE.
  8. Yeah, that's what I saying earlier in this thing. Now it's confirmed by you So many platforms!
  9. I agree about distro being a bitch... but it's a lot easier these days (depending on the platform) to find a way to release your film to the public. DTV, PPV, and streaming are not as hard as finding a theatrical release.
  10. I sure hope TJ doesn't retire from acting anytime soon. Though I could understand his frustration and doing the comics is always nice.
  11. I wonder if Gale Ann Hurd would come on to produce again.... how busy is Valhalla these days? Aside from Walking Dead..
  12. Well let me know if you want to do that web series. I'm in LA and ready to go! I'll work on it for free, I have a production background as well. Plus I got some folks with gear who would be gung ho about this.
  13. I hope to God that gets me a Producer credit on THE CLEANER. I think it'd be a great idea. Marvel will surely take note if TJ has a web-series with over 500k views where he is Punisher'esque. They could've went young for Nick Fury, but they got SLJ. The Punisher was never a clean cut kinda guy to begin with.
  14. Hi guys, since the reaction has been very positive about a new Punisher flick with Thomas Jane, why not get Terry Dougas @ 1821 to fork over some cash for a Punisher webseries? I figure you can shoot 1 per month, each one at 10-15mins... Use the Dirty Laundry as a prologue. I'm not sure you can monetize it due to legal reasons :*(
  15. Can we just have a Punisher cameo in the next Captain America or The Avengers movie? After that, I think The Punisher would do well in a HBO or Showtime series. At the very least, give the skull some TV love.
