Ever since Jon Bernthal perfectly inhabited the vengeful antihero in Netflix’s The Punisher, fans have been clamoring for the actor to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut. It’s unlikely to ever happen, considering Disney’s family-friendly focus and the cancellation of Marvel and Netflix’s more mature superhero series. But that didn’t stop one pitch from trying to make it so.
Writer Adam G. Simon, who pens the upcoming remake of Gareth Evans’ 2011 brutal martial arts action phenomenon The Raid isn’t a remake anymore(which apparently ), is adding his voice to the crowd of those wishing for a Jon Bernthal The Punisher outing with the revelation that he once pitched an R-rated The Punisher movie to Marvel. Simon even had a full fledged idea of how to make it happen.
