While talking with Collider, Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy said he would be up to play The Punisher or even a role in the live action Splinter Cell film.
“I want The Punisher… I want The Punisher, or Splinter Cell, I want something…I don’t know what I want. I’m not big enough to be The Punisher, I’m 5’9” [Laughs], but Frank Castle, I would love it.”
I think Hardy has the chops for The Punisher, although he wouldn’t be my first choice, he has proven himself to bring his A game when he’s on screen. Let’s just hope one of the Marvel Netflix series brings in The Punisher since he is back to Marvel Studios and that would be a perfect platform to bring a darker mature character like Punisher…. Possible villain for a Daredevil season 2?? One can only hope.
