I really do. Punisher is isolated at a Studio with no other significant Marvel characters and at a studio that only makes low budget films. It's like Punisher has handcuffs on. I loved the first film for what it was but man it could be so much more. There's also not alot of top directors contracted with Lionsgate. Punisher going back to Marvel would assure a sequel done as right as it can be by the one who cares about the character the most IMO. Also Marvel could lend out the Punisher to other studios for crossovers on TV (Blade) or films (Spidey, Daredevil, etc...) Even if the crossovers never happen just give up on it LGF. Please. Besides LGF has too many other low budget success stories like Saw and Hostel to put Punisher as top priority. Considering Marvel is not selling the rights off to any of their characters ever again and that LGF only makes low budget films...I'm just praying for this to happen. I believe LGF has to the end of 2007 to get Punisher filming or they lose.
