No Fantasy Crap Allowed in Punisher!

Awesome Punisher Promo!

I love it when The Punisher is grounded in reality. When Marvel’s The Punisher premieres on Netflix sometime in November (Nov. 10th?), you won’t see any fantasy worlds nor super-powered beings, monsters, ghosts, dragons, or magical beings running around in the show. Just ask Jon Bernthal who spoke with Entertainment Weekly today about what will we won’t see in the show.

“We are stripping down every supernatural element,” Jon Bernthal says. “This show is different. It looks different. Frank is a character rooted in the most basic human emotions… He’s a comic-book character, but he doesn’t fly, he doesn’t have X-ray vision. He’s an unbelievably skilled soldier who’s been very, very angry and very, very hurt.”

And that makes it A-OK for fans like me. I’d rather see Frank appearing solo in stories grounded in reality than see him appear in stories chock full of overblown fantasy, cartoon, and superhero style crap that’s been saturating Marvel Comics in recent years.
