Punisher 2 Gets A Title Change — Punisher: War Zone!!

Well, I can’t say as if I’m surprised to hear this (if it turns out to be true, that is), but the powers that be have decided to change the title of the Punisher sequel from the Garth Ennis-inspired “Welcome Back Frank” to “War Zone”. So the full title will now be, “Punisher: War Zone”. At least, according to ComingSoon, so if this turns out to be wrong, you know who to blame. Ahem. Comic book readers will know that “War Zone” is actually a Punisher comic book title, the Punisher having spun off a series of comic titles during its heyday, including “War Journal”, “War Zone”, and “Armory”. There might have been more, but that’s all I can recall at the moment.

In the sequel, to star Ray Stevenson and directed by Lexi Alexander, the Punisher leaves behind the sunny sunshine of Miami and heads to New York to do some mob busting. He encounters the villainous Jigsaw, a disfigured hood, and runs up against various G-men in the process.

Basically, a whole lot of people end up dead and stuff.

    Finally. This has the look, violence and feel of the classic 1980s actioners in spades. Films like ‘Commando’, ‘Rambo’, etc.
    Simple story, whole lotta action and meat and potatoes style hand to hand fights.
    I was dismayed that it wasn’t a success at the cinemas, but its to be expected when people are so used to seeing comic adaptations like ‘Iron Man’, ‘Spider-man’ or ‘X Men’, that are glitzier, filled with effects and have comparatively deeper stories. I enjoyed those films too, but old school action is back and this is the way Frank should be handled.
    No wacky neighbours, no giant Russians, no funny one-liners, no revenge plots involving fire hydrants. Just shoot first…and then shoot again.
