I wanted to make a fan film for a character I’ve always loved and believed in – a love letter to Frank Castle & his fans. It was an incredible experience with everyone on the project throwing in their time just for the fun of it. It’s been a blast to be a part of from start to finish — we hope the friends of Frank enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.
One of the best aspects of Comic-Con is that true appreciation of character and art is often found on display. Moments when Ryan Reynolds recites the Green Lantern oath with a small fan, when Andrew Garfield dressed up in costume for the press conference for Amazing Spider-man, so on and so on. This year we got to see Thomas Jane give back to the fans with a fan-film short featuring the Punisher (whose rights belong to Marvel again, btw).
Maybe Jane will see himself in a Marvel-production of The Punisher, maybe not, but the sentiments are welcome.
