Re: Evan Peters Joins X-Men: DOFP as Quicksilver
Sony most definitely didn't have Punisher rights when Spider-Man 2 came out. There IS a Punisher cameo in the movie... sorta kinda. Raimi wanted a cameo, so Thomas Jane's stunt double has a very brief cameo towards the end of the film. An actual cameo wasn't possible due to legal rights, hence the stunt double having a "sorta kinda" cameo. I'm thinking that story is why people get confused on the Punisher rights having been with Sony. They hear about the cameo and don't realize it was unofficial.
