Thomas Jane put together one of the most fun surprises of Comic-Con. Jane recruited director Phil Joanou to make a new short based on The Punisher—titled Dirty Laundry—on the down-low and screened it at the panel for his RAW Studios. That was in a small room, so few actually saw the short. But Jane and Co. posted Dirty Laundry online for all to see, and you can now watch it after the jump. Ron Perlman also makes an appearance in the short scripted by Chad St. John and produced by Adi Shankar. Check out our recap of the panel here.
This quote by Jane is featured in the YouTube description:
“I wanted to make a fan film for a character I’ve always loved and believed in – a love letter to Frank Castle & his fans. It was an incredible experience with everyone on the project throwing in their time just for the fun of it. It’s been a blast to be a part of from start to finish — we hope the friends of Frank enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.”
It’s a cool idea. Now that it’s public, I am interested to see if Marvel has a response to a short made with their character but without their knowledge.
Finally, here’s 10 images that we were provided with from director Phil Joanou. We were also given the new Punisher logo they created for the film. It was designed by Tim Bradstreet.
