Over the years, there have been many iterations of The Punisher on the big and small screen. Most recently, the Marvel character was portrayed by Jon Bernthal on Netflix. The antihero has also been played by Thomas Jane, Dolph Lundgren, Norman Reedus in the animation, and more. Bernthal’s version was never officially a part of the MCU, and it’s currently unclear what the future holds for the character. However, one person we didn’t expect to put on the skull is Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. Recently, artist BossLogic shared a cool look of Feige as Frank Castle.
“Breaking – #KevinFeige presented himself as the Punisher because of all the leakers within Marvel Studios,” BossLogic joked. You can check out the art below:

Earlier this month, Bernthal had a heartbreaking response when asked about a potential Marvel comeback.
“You know, we’ll see,” said Bernthal ScreenRant while promoting his new independent film Small engine repair. “I mean, honestly, I don’t think much about it. I’m really happy – listen, we’re all extremely blessed to do this. I can say for the other guys you talk to as well, we love it. really that. We really love doing that. We work hard at it, we support our families through it, through that, but we never lose touch with how grateful we are to be in the position that we are that we are getting doing this for a living. I love doing this. I love working with people that I respect and really love and admire and who I do stuff with. This kind of project is precisely, it’s exactly the kind of things that I want to do. So whatever comes, you know, a little later comes. But it’s something that’s really worth celebrating. “
As for Feige, he recently spoke with CinemaBlend on the future of the Avengers core team and Phase Four.
“I think you’ll see this issue addressed and people grappling with that same issue within the MCU right now,” Feige said when asked to reveal if the Avengers are active in Phase 4. “I think post-End of Game and Tony being off the board, and Steve Rogers being off the board, Sam Wilson is the new Cape, of course… what does it mean to be an Avenger? Is there a core team? Who runs it? Who finances it? “
The rest of Marvel’s 2021 lineup includes Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings, which now goes to the cinema, What if…?, which airs new episodes on Disney + on Wednesdays, Eternals in theaters November 5, Hawk Eye premiering on Disney + on November 24, and Spider-Man: No way home cinemas on December 17th.
