The Punisher is a force to be reckoned with in Marvel comics, and fans hope to see him battle Daredevil and The Defenders. That would definitely be a cool thing to be seen, either in a movie or a TV series. But even cooler is the prospect of seeing Tom Hardy as The Punisher, and from what I've heard it's not entirely out of the question. The actor already revealed months ago that he would love to play the vigilante at some point.

The Punisher has already been played by Thomas Jane (my favorite thus far), Ray Stevenson, Dolph Lundgren and Louis Gossett Jr. All with mixed box office success, my favorite thus far has been the version with Thomas Jane, he is a pretty good actor in my eyes and played the role very well. We need to see him do another film for the franchise, but I wouldn't be opposed to seeing Tom Hardy go at it as the character either.

There has been plenty of times when Hardy almost starred in a comic book flick. Don't forget he was sought after to play the main villain in X-Men: Apocalypse. Who do you want to see play "The Punisher" in a big blockbuster reboot or maybe a sequel to the "Thomas Jane" semi-success? Vote below if you'd like to see a new Punisher film and check out The Punisher 2: Doom Trailer I created last year, it has one crazy good cast!
