PUNISHER

The word is coming out fast and furious -- Comics Continuum's recently posted interview with Thomas Jane features tons of fun tidbits on the making of the movie. "I trained with Navy SEALs, did a bunch of training with those guys," Jane said. "It was about guns, weapons and handling, hand-to-hand combat, edge weapon fighting. I trained for months with those guys. How to clean and take apart your weapons. How to carry yourself. It was the mind, body and attitude of what it is actually like to live the life of someone who has dedicated themselves to service of one's country. It's a very interesting and admirable mindset."
