    Don't know how I feel, seeing as how I haven't seen any of either's work. But I do hear good things about Green Street Hooligans.

    This gal can handle a punisher movie...she will be fine

    Thomas jane left cause he is a pot smoking pussy...if things werent up to snub he is the face, make em change it....then again he wanted the punisher to be like travis bickle and pick up on 14 year old prostitutes that smell like jody foster...

    Ray is a bad ass, no doubt...I just dont see him having the chops to play castle unless they dont make him speak much or give him an inner monologue...

    If they wanted someone from Rome, why not cast Kevin McKidd????? Sure he is blonde, but so was Thomas Jane....and McKidd can act and has a better grimace....Maybe its just my taste....I was a huge fan of Rome....And Pullo was a badass, no doubt....but Purefoy or McKidd would have been better

    I like the idea of Ray as Castle. He has the build and the look for it. It will be interesting to see what happens with this one. McKidd wouldn't be bad, but he doesn't look rough enough for Castle and Ray looks rough even out of his make up.

    I loved him in Rome and i'm quite sure he'll do just fine.

    True, they should take a page from Ennis' Punisher.

    They did. Jane was Ennis' Punisher. They even had an Ennis villain in the flick, The Russian.

    Yeah, i noticed when i was watching it. Sadly, i thought it wasn't that greatly pulled off, but then again it's hard to pull off straight from comics.
    I do wish they could've incorporated some of the other arcs such as The Slavers or Kitchen Irish. They were just bad-ass.

    But though Jane was great, he wasn't exactly Enni's punisher, though the ending sure as hell was good enough for even Ennis.

    Id love to see those archs. or better yet see Ennis actually write a screenplay, new or adapted. His fucked up imagination converted to the big screen = win

    Slavers would make a great movie...but not kitchen irish....

    Infact Ennis boys....the worst parts of the movie came from Ennis...the shitty neighbors...

    The best parts came from Year One...which Penis had no part of...

    Thank you, have a nice day

    The worst part wasn't the neighbors nor specifically Thomas Jane...by far the worst part was not capturing the character of the Punisher correctly. The Punisher would not be running around town trying to make the guy who killed his family have hurt feelings (whining about his wife cheating and friend betraying him). The Punisher wouldn't have done all that shit, he would have fucking beat, tortured, maimed, & murdered any and all the people involved. All of the other changes pale in comparison to not capturing who the character is.

    cliff note -> The Punisher in the 1st movie too :gfight: and not enough :rl: diefuckerdie

    Amen on that! While the movie had it moments, the entire origin of the Punisher was flawed in the film. Argh.. Even as a badass, he still seemed like a whiny pussy, and I really hated the entire neighbor deal from the recent comics. Dunno. I think Ray will do a better job than Thomas, even though I liked Thomas in the role.

    I've always thought Rollins would be the only guy that would LOOK right as the punisher, aside from the tats.

    The preview for Death Sentence looks like Punisher for some reason
