Damn my stupid ethics! I’ve been sitting on this news for a week, because those folks at Artisan didn’t want this announced until Thursday. My question is, what’s the point? But hey, it’s the Punisher! So here’s the scoop, a Teaser for the New Punisher Movie is attached to the Incredible Hulk! We even scored one of the first looks at the new poster.
—————————————————————————————————–Marvel’s unstoppable vigilante THE PUNISHER hits the screen in a new action thriller that introduces a comic book hero unlike any other. The Punisher brings to the screen one of Marvel’s top-selling solo comic books and a marquee character whose popularity parallels that of Marvel stars X-Men and the Fantastic Four. The Punisher walks through the world we all know, a world darkened by war, crime, cruelty, and injustice. He has no superpowers to battle the evil he sees – only his fierce intelligence, his years of combat experience and, above all, his iron determination to avenge the wronged. The Punisher marks the directorial debut of Jonathan Hensleigh, renowned screenwriter of genre blockbusters The Rock, Armageddon and Die Hard: With a Vengeance. Thomas Jane (Dreamcatcher, The Thin Red Line) stars in the title role, squaring off against superstar John Travolta (Pulp Fiction, Face/Off) as the story’s formidable villain. The film will be produced by Marvel Studios’ CEO Avi Arad (The Hulk, Spider-Man, X-Men) and producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Hulk, Aliens, Terminator2).
