And here, you can hear the pain of DC fans.
For those of the unnerved, The Punisher is a character that is based on pure revenge for the killing of his wife and child. As the story states, The Punisher is a badass character that deserves an R-rated movie to portray his true self. And who better to direct than the man who has seen it all: – Ben Affleck.
