Netflix/Marvel's Punisher: The Series

It's odd that out of all the Projects Netflix has announced under Marvel Contract. that none of them have been for our Favorite Gun-toting Vigilante. I'm certain the Idea had to have been talked about. There is no shortage of Fans for the Punisher, and while the character's Urban Story Roots is not on the grander scale of the Avegners, but he has had some very popular story arcs that have stood the political excitement and allegorical intelligence of the Winter Soldier. 

This could be Frank's best shot at really getting a popular fan base outside of Comics. Heck most red blooded Americans certainly would find this character worthy of a massive fan base. No doubt the Punisher is probably my favorite Marvel (Anti)Hero. Many people might not believe in the cosmic -powers, fate, destiny, or luck. But I am certain that The Punisher was Absolutely destined for a T.V. Series, where they could do what both Movies and Comics have failed to give Punisher proper exposure.

So with that in mind, I hope everyone can enjoy my Punisher T.V. Series/Fan Cast Pitch, in hopes that someone, anyone at Marvel and Netflix might be reading this, take notes this is what Punisher Fan's want!

"He who does not punish evil, commands it to be done" - Leonardo Da Vinci.
Who among us is will to Punish the powers at be from Marvel, for not giving us the proper Punisher treatment we deserve! An exclusive deal between Marvel and Netflix has fired the imaginations of Marvelites worldwide. And now I come before you all to pitch my personal choices for a Netflix/Marvel Knights Punisher T.V. Series.

The series would be a set at 8-10 Seasons running on 13 Episode seasons. The tone of the Series would be Similar to the Margvel Knights' Punisher and Greg Rucka Punisher Runs while also operating on a very Punisher Max like leve in both sophistication and entertainment. This would act as a big melting pot taking all the pest Punisher comic book series, and story arcs and fusing them together into a Perfect Marvel Cinematic Universe Punisher.

Series Developer and Showrunner: the show's creator, is in charge of running the show. They pick the crew and help cast the actors, approve and sometimes write series plots (some even write or direct major episodes). Various other producers help to ensure that the show runs smoothly.

Frank Darabont [Notable Works {As a Showrunner}: Mob City, The Walking Dead]: Darabont is a filmmaker that just about everyone enjoys. They enjoy something he's done or something he is doing. He's great with Dialogue, visuals and he gets to the heart and soul of whatever story he's tackling, whether it's the Personal Redemption of a Banker, A religious awakening for a security guard, or a desire to make sense of a world where Zombies rule the land, Darabont knows how to make his projects stick. He knows how to make them interesting or more so. He's got an edge that he's been trying to really sharpen lately and the Punisher is the absolute perfect character for him to tackle that edge with.

Series Composer: A film score (also sometimes called film music, background music, or incidental music) is original music written specifically to accompany a film. The score forms part of the film's soundtrack, which also usually includes dialogue and sound effects, and comprises a number of orchestral, instrumental or choral pieces called cues which are timed to begin and end at specific points during the film in order to enhance the dramatic narrative and the emotional impact of the scene in question.

Brian Tyler [Notable Works: Iron Man 3, Expendables 2, Transformers Prime]: His Marvel work is nothing short of stella, and is leaps and bounds ahead of his normal work, whether it's because he's a fan or because the checks are more to his liking or if it's just the story that motivates him, he's a great composer and could definitely pull together a Series theme that fits the tone, soul, and meaning of the Punisher.

Production Designer: A production designer or P.D is the person responsible for the overall look of a filmed event such as films, TV programs, video games, music videos or adverts. Production designers have one of the key creative roles in the creation of motion pictures and television. Working directly with the director and producer, they must select the settings and style to visually tell the story.

Michael S Bolton [Notable Works: RV, Romeo Must Die, The Killing]: His work in the Killing was by far some of the most stellar Production design I've seen for a Cop Drama. He has a sensibility and edge to it that would really become an asset to the Punisher T.V. Series.

Costume Designer: A costume designer is a person who designs costumes for a film or stage production. The role of the costume designer is to create the characters and balance the scenes with texture and color, etc.The costume designer works alongside the director, scenic, lighting designer, sound designer, and other creative personnel. The costume designer may also collaborate with hair stylist, wig master, or makeup artist. In European theatre, the role is different, as the theatre designer usually designs both costume and scenic elements.

Ann Foley [Notable Works: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Terminator Salvation, Star Trek Into Darkness]: Her work for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Has been a draw for fans of the series, her Deathlok made big waves and her work as a very tactical feel. While the movie itself wasn't stellar, the look of the characters in Terminator 4 were very well conceived. I enjoyed her very toned and fitting work of the future with Star Trek Into Darkness and I feel she would have the tactical edge needed to give Punisher a comic book-y but threatening suit.

Cinematographer: A cinematographer (usually credited with the title director of photography, or DP) is the chief over the camera and lighting crews working on a film and responsible for achieving artistic and technical decisions related to the image. The study and practice of this field is referred to as cinematography.

Paul Maibaum [Notable Works: Sons of Anarchy {Multiple Episodes}, Baby Daddy {Multiple Episodes}, My Boys {Multiple Episodes}]: He's got a certain edge to his work. He gets a wonderful sense of tone through his camera work and he's worked in world's of grime and grit and would be a sure fire figure to change the tone of the Punisher from any standard Marvel Affair.

Editor: Editing is part of the creative post-production process of filmmaking. The term film editing is derived from the traditional process of working with film, but now it increasingly involves the use of digital technology.

Jordan Goldman [Notable Works: Sons of Anarchy {Multiple Episodes},The Chicago Code {Multiple Episodes}, The Shield {Multiple Episodes}]: He had an edge to him in the Shield, his cuts were quick, well paced and knew how to properly pace and move the action as well as drama. He could certainly help the Punisher.

Executive Producers: In the television world, Executive Producers are the head of T.V. Series, usually held by one, but in larger series many might share the workload.

Frank Darabont [Notable Works {As A T.V. Producer}: Walking Dead {Seasons 1 & 2} Mob City {1 Episode}, Raines {1 Episode}]: If this is a true Darabont show, he's going to have his hands as deep in it as possible. I doubt he'd be going this journey alone, but I certainly know he'd be a capable figure to do this.

Garth Ennis [Notable Works {As A Producer}: Stitched {Short Film}]: The Punisher is a character that needed Garth Ennis. I know many people aren't a fan of him, but it's undeniable he was the absolute best thing to happen to the Punisher in years. He is a wizard with the character, he knows the right story, the right angle, and all the right moves to capturing a truly epic Punisher run. He would be an absolutely needed hand in a Punisher T.V. Series.

Producers: Unlike the film world Producers share a role of banking without actually being onset, It's their money at play while Executive Producer's do a larger amount of work.

Kevin Feige [Notable Works: Marvel Cinematic Universe, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Carter]: He is Marvel. Every thing that became the MCU started with Kevin doing his best to get Marvel films made. He made large contributions to getting Iron Man on screen, and from that event on Marvel has been an unstoppable rollercoaster ride. A lot of ups, a couple downs, and plenty more fun to go around. He's dedicated to all thing's Marvel and would be the perfect man to go to, to get Punisher at home on T.V. For all Marvel and T.V. Fans alike to enjoy.

Steven S DeKnight [Notable Works: Spartacus, Netflix Daredevil, ]: Since he's a Dominant voice in Netflix's Daredevil, it would stand to reason that the well established T.V. Creator would be brought in to assist and oversee for Marvel a Punisher T.V. Series. He's a great T.V. Producer and would certainly be assisting of getting the Punisher on Netflix to battle it along other Marvel Heroes.

Executive Consultant: A figure who assists the Production of a series or film to keep it grounded to it's roots or characters. This figure is credited seprately from writers and is an onset figure, similar to a Producer, but with input more in line to keep the Material close to it's intended product.

Gerry Conway [Notable Works {In Television Production}: Law and Order Criminal Intent, Law and Order, The Huntress]: In all fairness he did create the Punisher, and he has been keeping himself in work, he had a small career producing Law and Order C.I. And had even contributed a number of Episodes written by him. He would certainly be a welcome voice in the world of a Punisher T.V. Series, should Garth Ennis decide to only Produce.

Frank Castle/The Punisher [Height: 6' 1", Age: 30's-40's]: A veteran in time of combat, Frank Castle became a vigilante after seeing his wife and children gunned down for accidentally observing a Mafia "hit". Since then, he has devoted his life to the task of destroying organized crime wherever he finds it. Although he aids many heroes in their quests, they often come into conflict over his way of dealing with crime.

Jon Bernthal [Height: 5' 10", Age: 37, Notable Works: The Walking Dead, Mob City, Snitch]: Jon is a fantastic actor. He's really proven himself in a lot of different films, turning in great performances in Walking Dead and Wolf of Wall Street. I think he really has the talent and the size and the Look of the Character. I think he could be a definitive Punisher and I certainly want to see Jon in a Marvel role. Him as the Punisher I think is a match made in heaven.

David Linus Leiberman/Microchip [Height: 5' 8", Age: 40's-50's]: Microship, or David Linus Lieberman as was his true name, was a former weapons engineer. He was also especially skilled in the use of computers and technology. He became the Punisher's sidekick for a long duration in the start of the Punisher's carreer.

Jason Lee [Height: 6' 2" Age: 44, Notable Works: Enemy of the State, Mallrats, Chasing Amy]: His performance in Enemy of the State, I was very intrigued by it and I really enjoy it. I think he has the comical sense, intelligence, and right nature to play Microchip.

Kathryn O'Brien [Height: N/A, Age: 30's-40's]: Kathryn O'Brien was a CIA agent until illegal operations were exposed, after capturing Frank Castle aka The Punisher led to a run in with mafia boss Nicky Cavella and his goons, which then turned into a bloodbath at a New York hotel. Serving 2 years in prison, she escaped and ran into Frank Castle again when she discovered that her ex husband, Bill Rawlins, had been hired to assassinate the notorious vigilante. She had worked within the CIA at Rawlins side in the past only to be betrayed and left for dead in Afghanistan at the mercy of terrorists, where she was taken prisoner and raped until she managed to get away. Her main goal was ultimate revenge on all the low-lives with no value for human life that took advantage of her, which was why she found a kindred spirit in The Punisher.

Lena Heady [Height: 5' 5", Age: 40, Notable Works: Game of Thrones, 300, Dredd]: Honestly, Lena has the Sex Appeal and Inner strengths of the character. She has the overall feeling of the character and would just absolutely be the perfect person to play the role. She is a smart and resourceful actress who would bring this character to life.

Detective Martin Soap [Height: N/A, Age: 30's-40's]: Detective Martin Soap was originally shown as a luckless incompetent cop in the NYPD. He was assigned to catch the Punisher because the NYPD knew that Soap was too big of a loser to ever accomplish the task. When Detective Martin Soap first meets the Punisher they made with Soap giving the Punisher information and Soap getting information. The information Soap received from Frank Castle got him promoted to chief of police. Later on Martin Soap was black mailed by the Mayor's office and demoted back to his original rank and reassigned to the Punisher task force.

John Krasinski [Height: 6' 3", Age: 34, Notable Works: The Office, Big Miracle, Promised Land]: John is a wonderful actor. He's got a great comical sense to him and he strongly resembles the character both physically and spiritually with an overall sense that he's been hit by bad luck. He certainly has been courted for Marvel Roles before but this would be perfect for him.

Molly Von Richtofen [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: Lt. Molly Von Richthofen is a lieutenant in the New York City Police Department who is unable to go higher in rank due to her combative personality and lack of respect for fellow police officers. She is openly gay and has refused the advances of a police commissioner which happened to become public knowledge and has been given impossible assignments to complete as punishment.

Laura Prepon [Height: 5' 10". Age: 34, Notable Works: That 70's Show, Karla, Orange Is The New Black]: Laura is a wonderful actress that overall seemed just absolutely perfect. She has the look and the overall feel of the character. I know she would be pretty well loved in the role. She has the personal strength and the dramatic talent to pull this off.

Walter Bolt [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: Walter Bolt was an officer in a N.Y.P.D. drug task force. One day, he and his partner were undercover performing what they thought would be routine surveillance of a meeting. The meet went bad, and violence broke out. Punisher intervened, stopping Bolt from doing something stupid and wisely pulling the alarm to get civilians clear before the shooting began. When the firefight broke out, Bolt froze but Punisher used his weapon to put down the gang, but it did not save Bolt's partner. After the debriefing, Bolt took the credit for saving the bystanders and the expert shooting, but what the NYPD didn't know was that he had since that day become an informant for the vigilante.

Desmond Harrington [Height: 5' 10", Age: 37, Notable Works: Dexter, Wrong Turn, The Dark Knight Rises]: I love Desmond. He's a fun and very enjoyable actor to watch. I enjoyed him in Dexter and I really think this would be a wonderful role for him to take. He's certainly got the talent.

Jen Cooke [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: Jen Cooke was raised by an alcoholic mother in New York City; because of her childhood experiences with her mother she has had many failed relationships in her life. Growing up she decided to become a social worker to try and help those in New York City who are less fortunate. She routinely works in her spare time at soup kitchens helping to feed the homeless in the city. Jen also does presentations about sexual slavery rings going on in New York City trying to raise awareness of the plight of women forced into prostitution.

Sonequa Martin-Green[Height: N/A, Age: 29, Notable Works: Toe to Toe, The Walking Dead, Yelling To The Sky]: She is a lovely actress who has the humanity in her character to play this role. I really enjoyed what she's done with her role in Walking Dead and it has certainly proven she can handle this role.

Viorica [Height: N/A, Age: Teens]: Viorica was born in Moldova and abducted from her village as young girl and forced to become a prostitute in the capital Chişinău. When she was first captured she was raped by four men for 24hrs then told she would now start working as a prostitute. During her time as prostitute she eventually became pregnant and was worried that the beatings and constantly being raped would cause her to lose her child. She eventually is brought to meet Tiberiu Bulat who sexually assaults her and decides to buy her. Before coming to America she ends up having her baby which the Slavers in New York City kept from her and only allowed her to see once a week.

Kaya Scodelario [Height: 5' 6", Age: 22, Notable Works: Skins, Maze Runner, Moon]: Kaya is a wonderfully talented actress and could certainly be a wonderful choice for Viorica. I think it could be a deeply personal choice for Kaya and it would let her play a very Jodey Foster-like role and show her as a serious dramatic actress, setting her apart from the teen flavor of the week and become a serious actress that will continue to get work because of her massive talent.

Yorkie Mitchell [Height: N/A, Age: 50's-60's]: Former Commanding Officer of the Squad Frank was in during the war, in this series he would be an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Who assisted Nick Fury in training Frank and his Marine Squad for special warfare operations.

Jeffrey DeMunn [Height: 5' 9", Age: 67, Notable Works: Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, Walking Dead]: DeMunn is a Darabont regular, so it felt very important to cast him in a role that fit his character. He does a wonderful job in his roles and I think it would be added dimensions for him to take a role Like Yorkie, with a connection to Castle and Shield and add a dab of that Marvel Comics Personality in this story to help bridge it in with the MCU and give Castle a slightly more unique skill set.

Joan [Height: N/A, Age: 20's-30's]: Joan is an ultra shy neighbor of The Punisher's who believes him to be man a named John Smith the alias which Frank Castle is using living in the apartment complex. Joan is terrified living in New York City with its high crime rate and is extremely insecure and lonely. She bakes cookies and pies just to go over to Frank's apartment so she can talk to him for the sake of having someone to talk to. One day while opening the door to her apartment she sees a massive blood trail in the hallway leading to Mr. Smith's room and Joan decides to enter to see if he is okay.

Danielle Harris [Height: 4' 11", Age: 37, Notable Works: Halloween {Franchise}, Camp Dread, See No Evil 2]: Danielle is a strong actress who has a lot of fun in her work. I think she can certainly do wonderful work as Joan, and it would certainly give her another type of character to tackle. She does a wonderful job in her works and could certainly play the role accurately to the comics and add a layer of drama to it.

Mr.Bumpo [Height: N/A, Age: 30's-40's]: A tenant in the apartment building where Castle lived for a time under the name of John Smith. Grossly overweight and requiring Castle's help to get through the door of his apartment, Mr. Bumpo once suffered a heart attack and the paramedics had to destroy part of the building's wall and use a crane to take him to the hospital. Shortly after he was released, the Russian attacked Castle at his home. After a vicious fight, Castle used Bumpo to smother him, doing so for thirty minutes.Castle later left him a share of Gnucci's money, and was said by Joan to be living in a clinic in Albany after "something important fell out of his bottom."

Anthony Anderson [Height: 5' 10", Age: 40, Notable Works: Transformers, The Shield, The Departed]: Anthony is by far one of the most enjoyable actors to ever see on screen. He does wonderful work and is a ball of Fun. He would do wonderful job in taking a role like Bumpo, that while well written has no true character arc nor key feature that makes him a stand out character. I think it would give Anthony a great opportunity reinvent character and add something to it, which is a great treat for any actor.

Spacker Dave [Height: N/A, Age: 20's-30's]: One day Joan found a badly wounded Frank Castle and she asked Spacker Dave for assistance. Spacker Dave immediately recognized him to be the Punisher, Dave suggested that they don't call the police or bring Frank to any hospitals because of the high possibility that the mobsters that injured frank would still be looking for him and they would start at hospitals and most likely have police officers in their pockets. Soon after two mafia members with the task to find the Punisher showed up at Spacker Dave's apartment door. He opened the door and they barged in and tied him up. They asked him where the Punisher was, using brute force to try to extract the information. Dave refused to answer. The mobsters proceeded to rip all of his piercings from his face. Despite the excruciating pain Spacker Dave never caved in and was eventually saved from the criminals by the Punisher.

Aaron Paul [Height: 5' 8", Age: 35, Notable Works: Breaking Bad, Need For Speed, Last House On The Left]: I think Spacker Dave is really just a perfect character for Aaron to play. It's not super vulgar but it's very spiritually fun, and that's what worked for him as Jesse Pinkman. It was fun for Aaron, as an actor to explore these areas and I think that's what would work for him as Jesse. He's a great actor and he certainly would be perfect.

Mike McTeer [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: A reporter who helped Frank investigate the Murder of his Family until being murdered by the mob.

Sean Patrick Flanery [Height: 5' 11", Age: 49, Notable Works: Boondock Saints, Dexter, Powder]: McTeer is a very complicated character in that stylistically he is dated, while his personality is very modern. I think Sean is a wonderful actor who can certainly portray the character but not make him a dated characterization. He's certainly a great actor who can really bring some heart and make the character much more likeable.

Angela [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: A vixen who worked for the mob as an assassin and later brought in to work for the criminal brainwash group known as the "Trust"

Michelle Rodriguez [Height: 5' 5", Age: 36, Notable Works: Avatar, Fast and Furious, S.W.A.T.]: Michelle is a true beauty of a woman, she has beautiful aesthetic but a good head that often directs her to smart career moves. While her works aren't always enjoyable she stays in business and still keeps a beautiful appeal.

Detective Bruce Greenwood [Height: N/A, Age: 50]: A detective for the NYPD who was on the Mafia Payrole.

Clifton Collins Jr [Height: 5' 8", Age: 44, Notable Works: Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day, Star Trek, Pacific Rim]: Clifton is a treat of an actor. He's just all about fun in his performances. He's a very memorable figure in the Boondocks Saints sequel and does wonders in that world. I think he would certainly be a treat to fans to see in a Punisher T.V. Series as a horrible person allowing Clifton to have some fun and imagination behind his character.

Frank Costa [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: Vicious head of the Costa Crime Family. Infamous for his grip on the Cities Crime and ordered the hit on the snitch that ended with the Castle Family murder.

Michael Chiklis [Height: 5' 8 1/2", Age: 51, Notable Works: The Commish, The Shield, Vegas]: I love to see Chiklis as a villain. It's a character set that fits him so well. He has a gruff sense of hatred and greed to him that makes him absolutely perfect. Michael has gained popular praise in her work and it's easy to see why. He could really evolve as a fan of comic books into a inhuman monster like Frank Costa.

Bruno Costa [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: Ruthless back stabbing brother to Frank Costa. He seeks only to kill his brother and take over the family. He was the lead hitman in the Castle Family Murder.

Barry Pepper [Height: 5' 10", Age: 44, Notable Works: Saving Private Ryan, The Green Mile, True Grit]: Barry has proven time and again that he is by far one of the most range-filled and dynamic actors to ever act on screen. He does consistently interesting and deep roles. He can really add layers of characterization upon the roles he takes. He could certainly take this role and make him a kingpin.

Leon Kulsky [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: A loyal hitman to the Costa Family crime family, he was a key player in the involvement in the Castle Family Murder.

Mark Pelligrino [Height: 6' 1", Age: 49, Notable Works: National Treasure, Dexter, Supernatural]: I like Mark's work, and when it came to cast this role for some reason he was the perfect choice. He looks like a Leon and just seemed to be the right person overall for the role. He would certainly be a very welcomed addition to the series.

Matt Skinner [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: A psychopathic member of the Costa Crime Family.

Christian Carmago [Height: 6' 1", Age: 43, Notable Works: The Hurt Locker, Dexter, Europa Report]: Christian has an eerie presence to him that makes him seem like the perfect person to play a Killer. I like his work and I find him to be an interesting actor with a great range of presence.

Byron Hannigan [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: Bruno Costa's favorite enforcer. He was the man who shot the informant in Central Park.

Brian Bloom [Height: N/A, Age: 44, Notable Works: A-Team, Once Upon A Time in America, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Hero]: For some reason, Brian looks like he would be a real mobster. He's a great actor and Very appropriate physically and spiritually in this role. He would be a very popular actor to take the role and make it something interesting.

Luis Allegre [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: A detailed Italian enforcer. Dedicated to the Costa Family.

Gavin Rossdale [Height: 6' 1", Age: 49, Notable Works: Constantine, Criminal Minds, Burn Notice]: I really enjoyed his performance in Constantine and I wanted to see him do more. I think this is just the right type of role for him and would certainly allow him to stretch his acting muscles in potential for a bigger role.

Billy Russo/Jigsaw [Height: 6' 1", Age: 30's-40's]: Former Assassin Billy "The Beaut" Russo, his face was ripped to shred and when pieced back together gave him a frightening new appearance and adopted a new name Jigsaw!

Walton Goggins [Height: 5' 10", Age: 43, Notable Works: The Shield, Justified, Predators]: Walton might not be convincing as a character nicknamed "The Beaut" and I really think Walton is a great enough actor that he doesn't need to be ultra handsome to stick in that role. I love him in Justified, and I think he would be absolutely Dynamic in that role. He does such a wonderfully genius villain, that he would be Iconic and darkly interesting as Jigsaw. He would be fun and energetic but threatening and dark. He would be perfect as Jigsaw.

The Elite [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: Described as a Nazi by the Punisher, for his sadistic ways of keeping his neighborhood clean from any sort of filth.

Gabriel Macht [Height: 6' 0", Age: 42, Notable Works: The Spirit, Suits, Behind Enemy Lines]: I like Gabriel a lot. He's a fun actor who doesn't get enough credit. He's doing very well on Suits and I think there is a way to take that and transform him into a monster. I think he would do amazing as the Elite.

Mr. Payback [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: A member of the Punisher Squad along The Elite and The Holy. He's a sloppy vigilante who caused the death of an innocent.

Tahmoh Penikett [Height: 6' 3", Age: 39, Notable Works: Arrow, Man of Steel, Smallville]: This is honestly a Tahmoh role. I know a lot of people love this guy, and he is a good actor but he only gets certain roles. It's a form that has really ridden his career. He's been set up as an actor, maybe not to play Batman but play a parody of Batman. I think that would make his take on Mr. Payback very fun.

Hector Redondo/ The Holy [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: A psychopathic Reverend of the catholic church in Spanish Harlem. He makes frequent break into homicidal rages.

Edger Ramirez [Height: 5' 10:, Age: 37, Notable Works: Wrath of the Titans, Vantage Point, Domino]: Edger is a bit of fun in that he takes his roles as serious as they really are. He was a very serious Shakespearian tragic god in Wrath and just all fun in Domino. He'd be amazingly fun as The Holy.

Eddie Gnucci [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: One of Mom's dimwit sons who helms the Gnucci Drug Trade. The Punisher kills him and leaves him in a burning warehouse destroying the Gnucci drug set up.

Nick Stahl [Height: 5' 10", Age: 35, Notable Works: Sin City, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, The Thin Red Line]: I'm actually a fan of Nick. I think he can do some pretty crazy roles really well. I think he's a fitting actor for these types of roles and it would be a good step up for him in terms of reviewed performances and a good step in the right direction for him as an actor and choosing roles.

Bobby Gnucci [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: A frequent date rapist and runner of the Gnucci Prostitution ring.

David Faustino [Height: 5' 3", Age: 40, Notable Works: Married With Children, The Legend of Korra, The Boston Strangler]: I don't know why but I just see this as the best possible role to cast David in. He's certainly played characters that echo this personality and deprave-ness. I think David would really get to show some serious acting chops and not get cut down comedically.

Carlo Gnucci [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: The youngest and most dimwitted son of Ma Gnucci, he sponges off her reputation. He is one of Ma's Favorite children and ends up being thrown off the Empire State building.

Fred Savage [Height: 5' 10", Age: 38, Notable Works: Goldmember, The Last Run, Generator Rex]: I like Fred. He's a fun actor and a child of the 1980's but also a smart and resourceful one. I think Fred is just about the perfect choice to Play one of Ma Gnucci's favorite son.

Dino Gnucci [Height: N/A, Age: 50's]: Ma's younger Brother, arrested by the F.B.I. For Various Mob Acts. He was Appointed the Council of Nelson and Murdock by the State of New York.

Mackenzie Gray [Height: 6' 0", Age: 57, Notable Works: Smallville, Man of Steel, Shooter]: Mackenzie is a fun cameo actor and I think that would be a perfect role. I enjoy him whenever I see him on screen and this would be a perfect role for him.

Ma Gnucci [Height: N/A, Age: 60's]: Ruthless Matriarch to the Gnucci Crime Syndicate. A true Sadist in every way imaginable, she sends the hunt for the Punisher to an all time high once he starts attacking her organization, she uses the Commissioner to establish a Punisher Task Force capable of doing the job.

Katey Sagal [Height: 5' 9", Age: 60, Notable Works: Sons of Anarchy, Lost, Married With Children]: Anyone who has seen Sons of Anarchy knows why I would choose her. Her character in S.O.A. Is evil incarnate and would certainly explain why she would be perfect for Ma Gnucci. I think she does have that nasty side that makes her perfect for it and she could certainly take that evil and nasty appearance and transform Ma into the most frightening woman ever.

The Russian [Height: 6' 10", Age: 40's]: A Russian assassin hired by Ma Gnucci as a last resort to kill the Punisher. He is an overpowered dimwit who has a love for Superheroes.

Derek Mears [Height: 6' 5", Age: 42, Notable Works: Friday The 13th, Hills Have Eyes, Predators]: Derek is a ball of fun, He does wonderful work in his "performances" and this would give him a chance to be a bit verbal and less physical in his acting. He certainly bears enough of a resemblance to the Russian, but if he could nail the accent he'd be a real treat to it. Either way i think he could outclass Kevin Nash's take.

Bushwacker [Height: 6' 1", Age: 40's]: A Psychopathic Assassin who was the result of a botched C.I.A. Experiment to create a human weapon.

Jeffrey Donovan [Height: 6' 0", Age: 46, Notable Works: Burn Notice, Changeling, Hitch]: I like seeing Donovan in various roles. I think he's a great actor, I think he does a lot of decent work acting and has a cold sense about him that could really be interesting if applied to Bushwacker. I think it would be nice to have him take a character like Bushwacker and transform him into a popular character.

Maginty [Height: 6' 0", Age: 40's]: Maginty was originally born in Dublin and moved to the United States when he was a child. He grew up in Hell's Kitchen when he was a child under the watch of the cruel Irish Gangster Nesbitt who would repeatedly use racist slurs when Maginty was around. Later on Maginty formed his own gang trying to gain control of Hell's Kitchen. After old man Nesbitt died he mailed a letter to Maginty, the River Rats, Cooley, and the Westies of where he stashed 10 million dollars with each of them getting partial coordinates where the money was at. In the note it said he wanted them to work together to get the money.

Lateef Crowder [Height: 5' 10", Age: 37, Notable Works: The Expendables, The Hunger Games, Sucker Punch]: I really enjoyed his performance in The Mortal Kombat Rebirth short and for some reason it stuck pretty deep to me and had me remember him. I think he would be perfect to Play Maginty and could appropriately play the character from the book.

Peter Cooley [Height: N/A, Age: 20's-30's]: Peter Cooley was an IRA terrorist who killed several British soldiers in Northern Ireland. He was disgusted by the IRA entering peace talks with British government and broke off from the group wanting to continue fighting the British. He visited his uncle Finn Cooley in Canada when his uncle got a letter about 10 million dollars an old Irish gangster in Hell's Kitchen left his uncle. Together they travel to New York City to go after the money with Peter wanting to use it to fund attacks against the British going not wanting the IRA to give up its war against the British.

Colin O'Donoghue [Height: 5' 11", Age: 33, Notable Works: The Rite, Once Upon A Time, Storage 24]: Colin is a fantastic actor that hasn't seen much in the way of proper exposure. He's a smart actor and has a lot fun and well worked performances that would help the role of Peter Cooley appropriately appear in the series.

Finn Cooley [Height: N/A, Age: 50's]: Finn Cooley was an IRA explosives expert who was caught one of his own demolitions, and subsequently had his face blown off. As a result of this, he wears a protective mask to help the tissue of his face stick back onto his skull. A figure of some status in the irish mob, Cooley is both respected and feared by his compatriots. He is shown to be incredibly skilled with weapons, in particular fragmentation and explosive devices (excluding the one that caused his disfigurement) and conventional firearms.

Lars Mikkelsen [Height: 6' 3 1/2", Age: 50, Notable Works: Headhunters, Kira's Reason, Sherlock]: Lars is a fantastic actor, I think he has consistently done fantastic performances and He can certainly harness the evil and horribleness that represent Finn as a character and would really show Lars as a break out actor in the U.S.

General Nikolai Alexandrovich Zakharov [Height: N/A, Age: 50's]: This man led massacres in Afghanistan and once during a raid a woman begged him to take care of her child. On the cliffs far away there were Mujahideen ready to attack. Zakharov walked slowly till the edge of a cliff and suddenly threw the baby down hill. This shocked everyone, even his own men and the hidden Mujahideen lost their mind when seeing this and blew their cover when starting to shoot at him but it ended in their death. This event earned him the title of 'Man of Stone'. Sometimes even killed his own soldiers.

Stephen Marcus [Height: 6' 4", Age: 52, Notable Works: Ninja Assassin, The Last Ferry, Interview with a Hitman]: Stephen has a real size to him that is very representative of Zakharov's. I think he has the right size and air about him in the manners of what he can get in the role. I think Stephen would be perfect for the role, he ahs both Size and skill set to fit in this role. Stephen would absolutely bring the Man of Stone alive.

Vera Konstantin [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: Vera Konstantin is a Romanian who is romantically involved with Cristu Bulat. She and Cristu came up with the idea of creating a forced prostitution ring during the end of the Bosnian War. Unlike Cristu, she figured out not just the business idea of sexual slavery but how to make it work. She came up with the idea of "rape them to break them." Which she explained to Cristu that rapping and beating the kidnapped women they had would make them more controllable since they would be too scared to try and escape or lash out at them since they would be to afraid. Together the two of them along with Cristu's father Tiberiu Bulat formed the forced prostitution ring.

Carla Gugino [Height:5' 5", Age: 43, Notable Works: Sin City, Watchmen, Spy Kids]: Carla is a lovely beast of an actress. She can really take on so many different roles and I think she needs a role that is as dark and as inherently evil as Vera. I think this role could transform her into a much darker actress.

Cristu Bulat [Height: N/A, Age: 40's-50's]: Cristu Bulat was born in Romania and the son of Tiberiu Bulat. The two of them ran a mercenary company in the Bosnian War killing Muslims for profit. When NATO was about to get involved in the war knowing it would come to end quickly Cristu along with his love Vera Konstantin hatched a plan to create a forced prostitution ring. Cristu eventually included his father in the deal hoping it would calm him down and allow him to live out his life in relative peace.

Neil Maskell [Height: N/A, Age: 38, Notable Works: Kill List, Atonement, Basic Instinct 2]: Neil is a neat british actor that has done some pretty grime and grit movies. He fits a profile that attracts Marvel Producers and He has a size about him that would certainly fit the role.

Tiberiu Bulat [Height: n/a, Age: 70's-80's]: Tiberiu Bulat was born in Romania and grew up to be a sadistic ruthless killer. He loves violence and killing and along with his son formed a mercenary outfit to kill Muslims in the Bosnian War. He later on joined his son and Vera Konstantin’s plan to create a forced prostitution ring in New York City.

Brian Cox [Height: 5' 7 1/2", Age: 68, Notable Works: Manhunter, X2: X-Men United, Red]: Brian is an amazing actor. I think he would be an amazing choice to play Tiberiu. I think he has the perfect skill set to play this role and I certainly think the ending of the Slavers arc, with Cox as Tiberiu would be an instant Emmy for Cox as an actor. He would be perfect as Tiberiu.

Barracuda [Height: N/A, Age: 30's-40's]: The result of a savage upbringing and elite military training, Barracuda is a ruthless criminal and a killer for hire who haunted the Punisher for months.

Quinton Jackson [Height: 6' 1", Age: 36, Notable Works: A-Team, The Midnight Meat Train, Fire With Fire]: Quinton is a pretty good actor, I think he would do a fantastic job as Barracuda, I think it would just take him a while to get into it. I think he could certainly do Barracuda very, very right. I think there's possibilities that could take the character Places and Quinton is perfect for it. I would love to see him listen to N.W.A. And really try to channel Ice Cube in his performance, only cause that would help him channel the vulgarity of the character.

Nicky Cavella [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: A mobster with the reputation of a psycho who got a score to settle with the Punisher after he ruined his plans for ascending the criminal hierarchy.

Paul Dano [Height: 6' 1", Age: 30, Notable Works: Looper, There Will Be Blood, Prisoners]: I was Extremely astonished with his work in There Will Be Blood. In that he played a very, very Nicky Cavella like character and had that stylized cowardice about him that is just purely perfect for the role. He's certainly got some talent that could help him play the homicidal range of Nicky and could certainly play the coward that Nicky really is.

Carmine "Pittsy" Gazzera [Height: N/A, Age: 50's-60's]:A Psychopathic mobster who once worked for Nicky's Auntie Moe and late Nicky as he took over her enterprise.

Jonathan Banks [Height: N/A, Age: 67, Notable Works: Breaking Bad, Parks and Recreations, Wiseguy]: This is actually a perfect role for Jon. He is best known for his work in Breaking Bad, and I think that characterization is a perfect explanation for why he works for Pittsy. He's certainly a great actor and would no doubt be perfect for this role.

Ink [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: A insane mobster who follow the will of his Father, Pittsy, and his childhood friend Nicky Cavella.

Vincent Piazza [Height: 5' 11", Age: 38, Notable Works: Boardwalk Empire, Jersey Boys, Rocket Science]: Vincent is a great actor and I think he deserves a very quirky role and I think Ink fits. I think he could have much more appropriate range with Ink then he would be given in any other role. I think he fits it tonally and physically. He would make a very fun and very Max-esq Ink.

Teresa Gazzera [Height: N/A, Age: 50's]: Pittsy's sister and new Bodyguard to Nicky Cavella, madly inlove with her boss, and out of this world insane. She initially started working with Cavella in order to get her revenge on the Punisher for the murder of her brother.

Daryl Hannah [Height: 5' 10", Age: 54, Notable Works: Kill Bill, Blade Runner, Skin Traffik]: Daryl is a powerful actress, she has a sense of fun and could really reign in the right amount of crazy to make Teresa threatening and not over-the-top-silly character. She could certainly play this role and make it memorable!

Director Arden [Height: N/A, Age: 60's]: Director of Ryker's Island Prison and a figure-head member of the Trust.

Kelsey Grammer [Height: 6' 1", Age: 59, Notable Works: Fraiser, Transformers Age of Extinction, Boss]: Kelsey is a very powerful and very demanding actor. He commands attention every time he comes on screen and is long overdue for a proper MCU role, despite being a perfect and iconic Beast.

Don Cervello [Height: N/A, Age: 60's-70's]: A Ryker's Island inmate who crossed paths with the Punisher and became a target of the Punisher in Rykers.

David Morse [Height: 6' 4", Age: 60, Notable Works: The Green Mile, Disturbia, House {Certain Episodes}]: David is an actor I have really wanted to see in a Marvel role. He's a great but underrated actor. I think he can fit a bunch of different roles and would be an amazing actor to see in a role like Don Cervello to allow him to create a new role.

Gregario [Height: N/A, Age: 30's]: Don Cervello's top enforcer behind bars, protecting him.

Sterling K Brown [Height: 5' 11", Age: 33, Notable Works: Supernatural, Starved, The Suspect]: Sterling is a fun actor, he could certainly do a lot of great work given a chance to play a role like this.

Texas [Height: N/A, Age: 70's]: A high Ranking boss in the Trust organization and Alaric's contact in the Trust.

Don Johnson [Height: 5' 11", Age: 64, Notable Works: Miami Vice, Django Unchained, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series]: Don is an iconic actor, He does wonderful work and is a pop icon of the 1980's. He does well and wonderful in his performances and would be a great addition to an MCU styled project.

Alaric [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: A member of the Trust, assisting them in creating Punishers.

Wes Bently [Height: 5' 11", Age: 35, Notable Works: Hunger Games, P2, American Horror Story]: Wes is a great actor, he does wonderful work and has a lot of fun in it. He would be a great asset in this role, he could take a comic book role, bring it to life and redeem his Blackheart performance playing a human character.

Marcus Coriander [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: Alaric's soldier training other mob killing vigilantes that dress as the Punisher.

Scott Adkins [Height: 5' 11", Age: 38, Notable Works: Expendables 2, Ninja 2, Undisputed 2]: Scott is a decent actor and would do a pretty good role in a more physical villain role that could free him up to invent his own take on the role.
