Scripts – 4

For a long time I have had this Punisher script sitting around on here.  I wrote it before Daredevil season two because up until then, the only other (and best) incarnation of the character was Ray Stevenson in War Zone.  I did not think we would see him appear in the MCU, so I set out to write a Punisher movie in the context of that continuity.

After Jon Bernthal’s version came and went, I could not help but imagine what a sequel to my script would look like.   I did not just come up with one follow-up; I came up with three.  Not matter how futile the effort, I saw a whole series that could be made in parallel to the mainstream MCU.  I saw the direction a quartet of Punisher films could go and the potential for other characters that have been mistreated thanks to a certain studio and a certain director being embarrassed about liking comics (you know the one).

However, the available draft of the first movie needed a little punch up.  For about a week I added some names, a scene or two, and sowed the seeds for a series that will never happen.  Regardless, I still wanted to do it and since finishing my “secret black project,” I will be devoting more time to writing these scripts.

Enjoy, I hope.
