Garth Ennis concludes his seminal run on PUNISHER — in style. Thirty-five years ago, the Fifth Cavalry disgorged their troops on an isolated Vietnamese hilltop and was met by a scene of utter devastation. The final body count ran to well over seven-hundred — almost 200 hundred of them American soldiers. Standing alone amidst the carnage, a sole survivor: Captain Frank Castle, who years later would be known as the most fearsome vigilante to walk the Earth: The Punisher. Now the Punisher is about to face his stiffest test: He’s hunted big game in his day, but none as big as this. Five men with unlimited resources. Men who’d put anything between themselves and the Punisher’s bullet. Men who know exactly who he is…and how to fight him.

‘Watchmen’ movie news

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox is trying to stop production of the Watchmen movie claiming that they own the rights to make the movie. I still say this movie won’t get made.

I understand the impulse to make every good (and not so good) comic book/superhero property into a major motion picture, television show or animated series. You don’t have to work as hard to get that first weekend audience. You are pretty much guaranteed a nice return on the Special Edition DVD when it comes out. The people who sold the license in the first place get checks for minimal work (which is always a good thing). And most importantly, all of the heavy lifting is done, the story is written, the visual concepts are in place, just the mere mention of an update gets the comic book bloggers in a lather more than any PR junket.

However, guess what? Not every good (and not so good) comic book/superhero property NEEDS to be made into a major motion picture, television show or animated series. Has the world been in a frenzy for a Watchmen movie? Or a Preacher HBO series? Or another X-Men animated series? (Although to be fair, Wolverine and the X-Men is apparently further along in the process than the other two.)

I don’t think so. The last superhero/comic book movie that I was truly excited to see was Sin City. Hmmm, that was a good movie, so maybe I’m not really strengthening my argument. Maybe I’ll be proven wrong, but I still don’t think that Watchmen will be made.
