Movies based on Marvel comic book heroes seem to have two options: Super HERO (Spiderman, Iron Man, Blade) and Super ZERO (Daredevil, Hulk, Ghost Rider.) Another trend is that the movies that start out great get lamer as they go along (Spidey 3 SUCKED) and those that start out bad get better (Punisher 2 — despite Travolta — was definitely better than the original Dolph-fest.) Is it possible they’ve finally gotten it right with the new Punisher movie??
They Punisher flicks have improved with each incarnation, but based on the preview video below I think they may have nailed it this time.
The report also says we can expect to see Frank Castle’s uber-geek sidekick “Microchip” portrayed by Wayne Knight (hello… Newman…)
If this third-movie trend becomes a habit, just think what this might mean for the third Hulk movie. It would mean only two more Daredevil flicks to suffer through…
