‘ChrisN’ reports from the Toronto Film Festival where The Punisher, Thomas Jane, made an appearance…
Mr Jane was in town yesterday (Sep 6) for the world premiere of his film ‘Stander’, in what the Director described as his “Punisher” gear. It was just a black t-shirt though, no skull to go with it. Distribution of ‘Stander’ is not finalized yet, so it’s unknown when other fans will be able to see this movie which has some surprising parallel’s to the Punisher story. Thomas Jane stars as real-life (From the late 70’s, early 80’s South Africa) police captain Andre Stander, who after a difficult assignment decides to “fight the system” by becoming a high profile bank robber and quickly finds the SA government on his tail.
