    The John Wick guys for Bloodshot is a no-brainer. I know Marvel fans were hoping Marvel would get them for Punisher but I guess Valiant stole that thunder.

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Were there rumors about this? Or just "best fit" / ideal scenarios? I haven't heard of any Punisher reboots as of late.

    No, there is no active Punisher project in production. I just remember when John Wick came out, there were plenty of "If Marvel were smart they'd get these guys to reboot Punisher" posts.

    Punisher would be fantastic for Netlfix. I'll always hope, but I don't think we'll see anything anytime soon. At least not before 2019.

    As for Bloodshot, I read these in the 90s along with another comic that I can't remember right now. He always seemed like a really generic "tough guy"- not sure what Sony plans to do with him. I'll probably check out some of the more recent stuff.

    Honestly, I'd rather see Harbinger and Bloodshot at this point than another X-Men or Punisher.

    So yes.

    But have you read Bloodshot? He seems like such a pieced together freak of a superhero- Part Blade, part Wolverine, part Deathblow...... There's really nothing interesting going on here. He even had his memory wiped like Wolverine.

    Yeah, and Harbinger is very derivative of X-Men. I read both of the relaunched books. They're very well written. Way more than X-Men and Punisher are currently. So there is that.

    I'm excited for the next stage of comic book movies. Shit is going to get weirder and I'm all for it.

    My initial thoughts too. I guess they felt like it wouldn't translate to live action.
