White supremacists ruined the Punisher. Too bad...I used to love those books when I was a kid.

The Silver Mullet: White supremacists ruined the Punisher. Too bad...I used to love those books when I was a kid.


The ironic bit about the police idolizing the Punisher is that his character is costs because they were bad at their jobs.

Jon Berenthal IS the Punisher. He nailed the character. That's not to say anything bad about Thomas Jane. When I read the Expanse books, his voice is what i hear when I read Miller dialogue. He absolutely nailed that character.

I liked Thomas Jane's Punisher. The main drawback to the movie was Travolta.
If he can make the new Punisher similar to his Dirty Laundry short I would be happy.

Thomas Jane and Jon Bernthal are so underrated!

Fight me!

What did they expect about a character taking the law into his own hands because the system just does not work?

The far-right has always coopted those kind of characters.

HELL YES!! Travolta made a terrible villain in that movie.  It was like he was trying to remember his lines as he was speaking and those are the cuts that got put in the movie.

The pacing of the Thomas Jane movie is really weird.

But that fight sequence with the Russian is f*cking awesome.

Funny, didn't see anything about Jane directing Ray Stevenson...

Admittedly, I am not familiar with the source material, but Bernthal was fantastic as the Punisher. I was pretty bummed when they canceled the show. I'd happily watch a Punisher movie with him starring.

After watching him in that short film they made long after the movie... well he has the passion and the eye for it. Why not? It's 2020, let's get wild.
 
2020-12-15 1:18:52 PM  
There should be a comic book character called The Publisher who people always confuse with The Punisher.

The main point to take from that is that Berenthal is unwatchable. I'd sit through the Inhumans three times before I'd try to watch his Netflix series again.

They actually fairly recently addressed that.

I'm all for Jane directing Berenthal. They're both obviously passionate about the character and I thought they were both great.

Watching him chew through his role in The Expanse is great, he is clearly loving his job

The Dirty Laundry short was great, give him a chance with it now

Since Marvel is doing the multiverse thing, might as well get both those guys to reprise their roles, and drop in Dolph for a cameo as well

Very true, but I have a Punisher shirt that I can't wear, as many would think I'm in 'that' crowd.

I was going to say I never heard of or saw Thomas Jane in anything until I became a HUGE Expanse fan a few months ago.

He was EXCELLENT as Miller on that show. I can't imagine anyone else could have done a better job.

Punisher I only associate with white supremacists/racists, so I won't be interested in that, because if they like it, it must SUCK BEYOND BELIEF to normal people.

Berenthal doing Punisher is easy. If Jane wants a challenge, he needs to direct DJ Qualls
I'd pay to see this guy as The Punisher

Nope.  The Punisher has f*ck all to do with white power.  The creator of the character has said so.
Frank Castle would be the first to kill a wannabe Nazi about to hurt an innocent.  He'd get all Inglorious Basterds about it, too.
He's really the Antifa of their farking nightmares.

As importantly, Berenthal is amazing in the role.  Pain, quiet intensity, humanity, and rage.  It's worth watching.  (Full disclosure, I'm still watching through, currently.)  He was very good in Ford v Ferrari too.  Though that film was mainly Damon and Bale.  Who were also great.
 
2020-12-15 4:47:12 PM  
Thomas Jane is awesome in "Thursday", the first movie I ever saw him in.
 
2020-12-15 4:54:28 PM  
I'm pretty hopeful.  If he can extend Dirty Laundry to a full length movie, I'm sold, and I liked Berenthal in the role a lot.  This could still go wrong, but I think its chances are better than average.
 
2020-12-15 4:56:05 PM  
Bernthal is the definitive Punisher. His rendition actually made me feel like he hurt, that he missed his wife and daughter, that the war crimes he committed bothered him a little when things were clearer. Jane, on the other hand, had a couple of cool fight scenes and was boring as fark the rest of the time.
 
2020-12-15 5:40:50 PM  
Bernthal has resting rage face, and perfected that role.

Jane is good in everything.

DOOO EEEET!!!

This.

And Ray Stevenson too.  War Zone is a very good Garth Ennis take on the Punisher.  :)

Holy crap that'd be a hard sell, but worth it just to see if the guy could pull it off.

Definitely. Reminds me of when people were biatching that neo-Nazis liked Taylor Swift. I was like "who cares what neo-Nazis like?"

Why would you let what pieces of shiat like ruin an entertainment experience for you? The Punisher wasn't racist.

Yep. All The Punisher cared about was if you were a violent criminal or a mobster. If you qualified, you got Punished. If you didn't qualify, you were safe. He could care less what color your skin was or what sex you claimed was yours or how much money you had.

Frank Castle vs a fascist militia of domestic terrorists?

Shut up and take my money!

If Marvel could contrive an odd couple mission, or face off film, with Deadpool and the Punisher I'd have to see that, too.

It's funny they might not tonally fit together, considering how steeped each is in ultraviolence.  But the potential for crazy action and teh laffs are there.

He was pretty good, but he should have been better. He certainly had the size and look down cold. But that movie sucked. Powerful sucked.

I thought giving him the monster handgun actually made him more like The Executioner, not the Punisher.
