Hollywood's third attempt at recreating the hyper-violent vigilante magic of Frank Castle has Rome's Ray Stevenson donning the skull shirt. In other words, it has absolutely nothing to do with the other two Punisher you've already seen, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The new version promises to have a much closer link to the comics, which were more violent than the stands at a World Cup soccer game. Sadly, reports have confirmed that the war wagon, which is the blacked out van big Pun uses to haul around his guns in the comic, will be MIA. But hey, at least this we don't have to deal with John Travolta as the villain.
