Must Watch: First Punisher: War Zone Teaser Trailer
The first teaser trailer for Punisher: War Zone has arrived. Like The Incredible Hulk this weekend, this new Punisher is a reboot that starts from scratch, but honestly it doesn't look that bad. There are a few cheesy parts and the dialogue isn't too hot, but overall, I'm actually impressed. It looks like a colorful (not even kidding) and ridiculously energetic action extravaganza. Also like Hulk, I think Marvel made sure this pushed it to the limits and featured even more over-the-top action. Ray Stevenson replaces Thomas Jane as vigilante Frank Castle in Punisher: War Zone and goes up against Dominic West as Jigsaw. It really looks like they're trying to turn this into the next Iron Man but in December and they may pull it off. So strap on your bullet proof vest and enjoy!
Thanks to IGN for debuting this first teaser trailer. This looks like the year comic book movies are making one hell of a comeback after X-Men 3, Superman Returns, and Spider-Man 3 all disappointed.
