"The Punisher" tells the story of FBI undercover agent, Frank Castle, who until now has beat considerable odds. A former Special Forces operative, he is finally moving out of the field and into a desk job -- and a normal life with his wife and son. Then Castle's world is shaken to its core by a nightmare he has longed feared: his family is executed as a repercussion from his final undercover assignment. With unparalleled intensity, ferocious intelligence and fearless actions, Castle seeks to punish the murderers -- and finds the one thing he least expected: redemption. Marvel Comics' "The Punisher" made his first appearance over 25 years ago as a supporting character. The hero proved so popular with readers that he could not be contained in a peripheral role and by the 1990's he was starring in as many as three titles a month. In 2000, "The Punisher" reemerged as one of Marvel Comics' highest selling solo books and remains a top seller for the Company.
Just before Marvel got back The Punisher rights, the studio also reacquired the rights to Daredevil, which they used to create the new Netflix TV series Marvel's Daredevil. Since the Marvel Cinematic Universe is already planned out for many, many years, some think it's possible that the studio is bringing The Punisher back as another Netflix TV series. Coincidentally, Marvel's Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight revealed on his Twitter account in November that The Punisher is the one comic book show he'd like to make, other than Marvel's Daredevil. What do you think about all these revelations? Would you like to see Thomas Jane come back as The Punisher? Chime in with your thoughts, and take a look at Steven S. DeKnight's tweet below.

From his latest comments, it seems The Punisher may be further along in development than Daredevil. He revealed in May that both movies may be possible inclusions in Marvel Phase Three, although that entire slate hasn't been locked down yet. Phase Three kicks off in 2015 with Edgar Wright's Ant-Man.

Marvel has once again reacquired the rights to Ghost Rider, The Punisher, Blade, and more recently, Daredevil.
Ghost Rider, The Punisher and Blade are some of the most violent characters in the Marvel world. So the fact that they are owned by Disney will make reboots of the films or entrance into phase two or three a very unlikely possibility. They are more likely to be licensed back out to other studios. Only the time will tell what will happen.Read More

Jonathan Hensleigh: Yes, it is darker now. The Punisher is really executing Jimmy Weeks. He makes it very clear that if Weeks doesn't do the deed himself then Castle is prepared to kill him. I would add that there's one camp of critics that think the picture is too light. Then there's a whole other camp of critics of the movie who think that the film is way too violent. This is just the way things are now with the internet based bloggers. No film has ever been able to please all the people.
