MTV caught up with Thomas Jane about The Punisher 2:

Somewhere in between Iron Man, Spider-Man 3 and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Marvel Comics is still planning to bring back vitriol-spewing vigilante the Punisher for a follow-up to his underperforming 2004 flick. According to series star Thomas Jane, the wheels are in motion for him to slip that trademark skull onto his chest again soon for The Punisher 2. "The script comes in a couple of weeks, and it's going to be darker, bloodier and more unfriendly than the first one," Jane confirmed.
