PUNISHER: WAR ZONE
Speaking of guns, comics and movies, actor Doug Hutchison let slip some spoilers in this interview with Italian site Comicus. Without letting all the cats out of their respective bags, he said, “This movie will be nothing like any of the previous ‘Punisher’ films. In fact, it’s not a sequel. It’s its own entity. ‘Punisher: War Zone’ is going to blow you away visually. It will be very close to the “look” of the graphic novel. The lighting, the sets, the costumes, the style: all of it is going to have a dynamic gothic gritty urban timeless feel. I think it’s going to look as stunning as something like ‘Blade Runner.'”
In a story at Newsarama, writer Michael Green (coincidentally) noted that he was hard at work on bringing some Oan energy to Earth. “I’m co-writing it with Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, the best people you could hope to get stuck in a room with for any length of time,” Green said. “As for status, we’re writing it now and having way too much fun doing it.”
