Thomas Jane has dropped out of the sequel to The Punisher movie. Seems to be about the script. I thought the first one was really good. If it is the script, I hope the fix what is wrong with it and have him return to do another.

You know, I'm about as up-to-date as anyone (maybe moreso) about comic book films. And I can honestly say I had no idea there was even a Punisher sequel in the works. That's news to me.

While I think Jane was a good/great Punisher in the movies, I can't see them making a Punisher movie that the die hard fans would want. The first movie was a semi-competent adaptation of a pretty good Ennis storyline ("Welcome Back Frank") with some major flaws (specifically, Tampa instead of NYC, and John Travolta's generic Howard Saint instead of the awesomely evil Ma Gnucci). Ennis has taken a lot of the humor out of his stories for Frank lately, and I can't see an adaptation of some of his newer stories "selling" very well to studios or the general public. "The Slavers" (pick up the paperback) was probably the best Punisher storyline Ennis has done (perhaps the best storyline ever), but I can't see a story about human slavery, rape, forced prostitution and baby murder being a big hit on the big screen, at least a story presented by Marvel.

Maybe I'm wrong and something good will wind up on the big screen. I feel semi-strongly about this because Frank's the only character I've read on a regular basis, and he was the reason I got into comics when I was 13.

I'd love to see BARRACUDA on the big screen. That was NASTY!

I also agree with you on SLAVERS... best storyline in quite a while and it pegged Frank's character perfectly

Solid, entertaining legal thriller with Matthew McConaughey doing his leading man best work (that I've seen, I've skipped all of his romantic comedies) since A Time To Kill. It's not gonna win any Oscars, but it's a well-made Hollywood movie.
