Kevin Nash was awesome in Punisher. God, I love that movie.
MercwithMouth - 7/14/2014, 8:11 AM
And Losers is also a favorite. Lots of multi-movie CBM actors...

Jeffrey Dean Morgan - Clay (and the Comedian in Watchmen)
Idris Elba - Roque (and Heimdall)
Zoe Saldana - Aisha (and Gamora)
The previously mentioned Chris Evans

Great film.

Well, this thread has officially been hijacked. Anyway, I don't know why, but for some reason I think I knew about Jon Favreau being in Batman Forever.
blackandyellow - 7/14/2014, 8:25 AM
Merc, how can you like the 2004 Punisher? It completely retuned the Welcome Back, Frank storyline. One of the worst adaptations of all time.
TheDarkPassenger - 7/14/2014, 8:37 AM
Loved the Losers. Still wish they'd made that a USA show or something.
CaptShipwreck - 7/14/2014, 8:40 AM
Something about that punisher film works
CaptShipwreck - 7/14/2014, 8:41 AM
I Personally feel the hit man singing frank a song in the diner was [frick]ing bad ass

the reason chris Pratt had a belly is because he drinks beer like it's going out of style

Captain America Suit "thought" the years??
MercwithMouth - 7/14/2014, 10:12 AM
@blackandyellow

Never read Punisher books. Loved the movie, hated War Zone.
slickrickdesigns - 7/14/2014, 10:35 AM
War zone had the violence but too crappy of acting.. it was like Ghost Rider... If acting and directing was good those movies would rock. Thomas Jane was the best Punisher, just wish the movie wasnt so slow and John Travolta didn't make a good Howard Saint. But I would love to see a new Punisher movie with Thomas Jane and a good director/script.

Jon Favreau was also in an episode of Seinfeld once haha! As a clown, no less.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 7/14/2014, 1:13 PM
Jon Favreau on Seinfeld:

punkfusion - 7/14/2014, 2:13 PM
Chris Evans in Scott Pilgrim? ANyone?
0megaDaGod - 7/14/2014, 3:29 PM
Favs was also on Friends for awhile
Orehrepus - 7/14/2014, 10:02 PM
Brandon Routh.







Scott Pilgrim, Dylan Dog and Superman Returns. Those are right up there in the forgotten comic book movie role category now.

RobGrizzly - 7/14/2014, 11:28 PM
Chris Evans and the Ninja Turtle ones I knew, but I totally forgot about Wanted, and Jon Faverau!

@Orehrepus: Good call on Brandon Routh and "Dylan Dog"
Orehrepus - 7/15/2014, 1:51 AM
Dylan Dog was a certainty. I meant Superman Returns included also, LMFAO! Naah, I was just kidding. It's not his fault that film was forgettable.
sameoldthing - 7/15/2014, 7:55 AM
Thomas Jane did a solid job in a better movie than War Zone. 2004 Punisher was great & bad all at same time. Weird.
Ray Stevenson was perfect as The Punisher,action was brutal & cool but overall film was a mess.
Hope someday a great Punisher movie is made.
