"Everyone gets it backwards...You don’t want to strengthen the idea that it’s a comic book in film, because film gives you the chance to actually bring it one step closer to reality—and that's the direction that 'Punisher' wants to go in." -- Thomas Jane

“My interest has always been based more in reality than in superhero fiction…The strengths of ‘The Punisher’ that I did lie in the reality that we were able to bring to the character, and the weaknesses of ‘The Punisher’ I did were all based on people trying to make this a ‘comic book movie’—with funny characters and goofball shit that has no place in a ‘Punisher’ film. ‘Punisher 2’ went more in the direction of goofball comic-book world than in reality..that’s why I dropped out of ‘Punisher 2’—because I’m not going to make a ‘comic book movie.’ It’s just doing a disservice to Frank Castle. Everyone gets it backwards…You don’t want to strengthen the idea that it’s a comic book in film, because film gives you the chance to actually bring it one step closer to reality—and that’s the direction that ‘Punisher’ wants to go in.”Thomas Jane
