The three live-action Punisher movies all had their own shortcomings and none was a big hit in the theaters. I'm guessing that the film rights will soon revert Marvel Studios if they haven't already. Still, they may be hesitant to put forth another Punisher movie until the memory of the other attempts fade a bit more. Perhaps in the meantime they could go with a dark animated series Give Frank Castle the classic get-up, white gloves and boots and all - This looks can work well in stylized animation where it would be almost impossible to pull off in live action. Animated violence is much easier for me to take than live action gore, so I might even prefer this approach. This might be fun as a late night cable series and it popular enough, warm audiences to the idea of giving a cinematic outing another try.
