    At least it appears that way which is understandable considering the delay and the fact that not only does September usually suck at the box office but also several Jan 2009 films have moved to later dates....and Marvel only has Wolverine in 2009.

    Note: New synopsis there too...or I think it's new.

    I don't think it's a bad sign. It's not like Ghost Rider being delayed a year and it's a typical release date move. Remember the weather caused a delay in filming and they may not have wrapped the final part yet. Also September blows as a release date for this kind of film IMO....even October would have been better. January isn't the best either but the competition is better IMO.

    This isn't a release from Marvel...it's from Lionsgate. :) Daredevil and GR also broke 100 million. :) Those are the best Marvel films though I agree. Still nobody ever expected a Punisher film to go up against any blockbusters in the Summer while Daredevil and Ghost Rider had a chance and were healthier budgeted films.

    And they all stunk.

    Hopefully War Zone won't keep the trend going. But you never know.

    Well Warzone has no relation to those films as far as directors, producers, etc...

    Well, I'm just going on the trend of a Marvel movie released in January. They haven't been good.

    Also, I looked on Marvel.com and saw nothing about the date change.

    Well you didn't look very well. It says coming January 1st, 2009. That's a Thursday so it's probably just a placement date. I'm waiting for someone in production to confirm the date change to me or if it was a misprint by the site. I'll let you know what I'm told.

    They did this before with the Jan 1 date like I said above. It's a low budget lionsgate theatrical release.
