John Dahl may be out, as he explained to Rotten Tomatoes earlier, but there is a director ready to continue Frank Castle’s quest for justice, even if there’s no actor yet. Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige revealed his secret, partly.
"We have a director," he said. "I think we’d like to announce a director and an actor together."
Whoever it is, it must be promising, because Marvel has high criteria for their properties. "The only reason I have any interest in doing another Punisher movie is to do a better Punisher movie. If Marvel thought we wouldn’t be able to do that, we wouldn’t make it."
So stay tuned. "Lionsgate is putting that one together with us right now. I think we’ll be announcing a director probably in the near future and another star in the near future."
