THE PUNISHER: We're Going To See Frank Castle And Micro Use The Battle Van From The Comics

The Punisher's Battle Van was first introduced in the pages of Giant-Size Spider-Man #4 and it's now been confirmed that we'll see the iconic vehicle brought to life on the small screen by Netflix...

There are some things from the comic books that fans never expect to see in live-action but we can now add one to the list that will definitely appear in Marvel and Netflix's The Punisher. That's the Battle Van as it's been confirmed that Frank Castle and Micro are going to be using that as a primary means of transportation and that we can expect to see it an awful lot in the highly anticipated TV series. 

"They travel around in the Battle Van in the comics, so it was important for us to do our version of that," Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb confirms on Netflix's Media Center. "It’s not the Batmobile, but it’s definitely an iconic character that people know." That's very true and while we don't know how much it will differ to what's in the source material, it's going to be fun seeing it in action in the show.

The Battle Van first appeared in Giant-Size Spider-Man #4 and has since made a number of appearances. Covered in armour and a variety of advanced weapons, The Punisher uses it to take the fight to his enemies and it's frequently served as his primary base of operations while on the run from the law. Are you guys excited to see it appear here? Let us know your thoughts in the usual place.
