Ray Stevenson Is New Punisher

The source who helped break the story that Heath Ledger would be The Joker is back at Latino Review and revealing another casting coup.

Ray Stevenson, most recently known as playing the brutish but good Titus Pullo in HBO’s “Rome”, will play the title role in the upcoming “Punisher” sequel.

Lexi Alexander is directing the follow-up to the modest 2004 hit which starred Thomas Jane in the title role. Jigsaw is said to be the villain, but who’s playing it will probably not be announced until Comic-Con.
