Thomas Jane's one-time go in 2004 as Marvel's gun-toting, tortured, trenchcoat-sporting vigilante, The Punisher was a rather underrated affair that would not end up being continued with a proper sequel, but rather, with a highly-panned reboot effort in 2008 starring Ray Stevenson.
However, it seems that eight years later, Jane has reprised the role...in a ten-minute fan film called Dirty Laundry.
Check it out below, but be warned, it is full of bad language, gushing gore, and even Ron Perlman. But really, how could a Punisher film NOT have those things?
Waring: Bad language and gore.
According to Jane, the reason he made the film was out of pure love for the character.
"I wanted to make a fan film for a character I've always loved and believed in - a love letter to Frank Castle & his fans. It was an incredible experience with everyone on the project throwing in their time just for the fun of it. It's been a blast to be a part of from start to finish -- we hope the friends of Frank enjoy watching it as much as we did making it."
In just ten short minutes, the film manages to capture the essence of The Punisher's character and the dilemma he would surely face every day when it comes to whether or not his brutal crusade against crime is just, or for that matter, even worth the sacrifice.
