And really, why do people keep bringing up Sony with regard to Punisher? Sony never had anything to do with Punisher.
It was produced by Artisan Entertainment/Columbia Tristar which is a subsidiary of Sony Pictures. Sony owned the film rights as the parent company. They also at one time owned the rights to Doctor Strange, which is why they were allowed to reference the character in Spider-man 2.

"Dull and downbeat, this Fantastic Four proves a woefully misguided attempt to translate a classic comic series without the humor, joy, or colorful thrills that made it great." - Rotten Tomatoes critics consensus on Josh Trank's Fantastic Four
