Marvel may have regained the movie rights for the Punisher, but not everyone wants them to plow straight ahead into a new film. The Twitter Report covers this perspective, as well as how to talk to your child about Frank Castle today.
In other news, some jerk apparently stole some artwork from ace inker Rick Basaldua at San Diego Comic-Con last week. He tweeted links to some images of what was taken, and I wholeheartedly recommend checking that out after the jump in case you run into any of it on the black market. All of this and reactions to "Project Runway" and the "Thor" trailer await you below.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for July 30, 2010.
-Rick Basaldua, Inker ("Witchblade/Devi," "Hunter-Killer")
Punisher pt. 1: @marcbernardin Were I you, @Marvel, and I just got the Punisher rights back, I wouldn't make another movie. That boat has sailed. Call FX.
-Marc Bernardin, Writer ("The Authority," "The Highwaymen")
Punisher pt. 2: @marcbernardin seriously, the Punisher has had three shots at feature film failure and succeeded every time. Move on. The Punisher is a serial creature.
Punisher pt. 3: @Robwilliams71 Son asked me why The Punisher is so cross. Then he said "I know why. Because somebody spilled his breakfast." Yep, that'll do it.
-Rob Williams, Writer ("Dark X-Men: The Beginning," "Robocop")
@Reilly_Brown Just saw the Thor trailer... How come he doesn't have a Scandinavian accent?
-Reilly Brown, Artist ("Cable & Deadpool," "Incredible Hercules")
@BrianDenham I love when Thor smashes his hammer into the ground and becomes House, M.D. or maybe I'm waiting for House to turn into Thor.
-Brian Denham, Artist ("Iron Man: Hypervelocity," "Man-Thing")
@laurennmcc I really want to hear Tim Gunn say "I am as serious a a heart attack, bitches!".
-Laurenn McCubbin, Artist ("Quit City," "Sable and Fortune")
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@Templesmith In an alternate reality somewhere, DEADWOOD is up to season 6. It's not fair.
-Ben Templesmith, Writer/Artist ("30 Days of Night," "Welcome to Hoxford")
