Eminem is Punisher

Apr. 15, 2009by: Omar Aviles

Eminem as Punisher In promotion of the upcoming release of his fifth studio album, Eminem decided to become the Punisher for the cover and inside spread of an upcoming issue of XXL magazine. It's unclear how dressing up as an irascible vigilante superhero promotes a music album but that's just the way Slim Shady does shit. Maybe it has something to do with the name of the album - Relapse. Does he want the Punisher to relapse into a decent film and not the silly garbage we've been subjected to with Dolph Lundgren before and Ray Stevenson now (the Thomas Jane one was just plain and forgettable)? In any case, if you ever wanted to see Shady as a superhero, here you go. Click on that big skull on his chest to check out the rest of the spread.

Extra Tidbit: "Relapse" hits stores on May 19th.

Fat-womanzier is right. Why the fuck does every super her movie have to be a "new realistic take"? You all cplain about not ever getting a good Punisher movie then when you do, you STILL aren't happy. War Zone is the closest you'll get to the comic book. All you people out there who claim to be Fan Boys obviously aren't. Like it was said, Punisher isn't exactly some deep meaningful comic series. Sure, it CAN be, but it ALWAYS had over the top gore and toungue in cheek humor. It's closer to Dick

Also, all the people dissing Eminem and saying "I thought he was done years ago". The dude's a mega producer. On top of that, he's STILL one of the greatest rappers who ever lived. And he's white. Give the man some respect. Have his last few albums been as good as his first 2? No, but what's new??5th albums are rarely as good as the first.

No. I hated Batman & Robin. But I also didn't like the Nolan-Version of the Dark Knight (Except for Heath Ledger's Joker). I am a fan of Burton's Batman, though because it has a cool comic vibe to it. And the Punisher may be the most realistic Superhero but if you ever read the Comics you know that the action/gore violence was almost always over the top (Especially in the Warzone series) So for me it was true to the original. And the original is not quite intellectual. The Punisher is no Dark

The tatoo

...is a better costume than from Punisher Warzone... *cringes*

And fat-womanizer, so you like the most realistic superhero of all time to be over the top, campy, neon-filled, cheesy, and with a complete shit outfit? I'm guessing you like Batman and Robin as well?

Batman&Robin + blood = Punisher Warzone

I agree with DaForce, Thomas Jane was the best Punisher hands down.

Does Eminem's face look like a photoshop disaster to anyone else, or is it just me?

Stevenson was an even worse Punisher than Lundgren. When your main character doesn't even speak for the first 20 minutes of the fucking movie, you know the [link] is going to suck ass.

Here's the list:
1. Thomas Jane
2. Dolph Lundgren
39. Ray Stevenson

Stevenson rocked

Punisher Warzone was the great. Stevenson was way better than Jane. It was just over the top action and violence like in the comic books. I think it's more appropriate to do it this way instead of making every single superhero more "realistic".

Someone just made me realize who Eminem reminds me of: comedy-country music sensation Ray Stevens.

How fitting. He certainly punishes all with his newer, shitty music.

I agree though that Thomas Jane is the only good Punisher. If they had half a brain they'd collaborate and co-operate with him on story ideas, get a good script together for a good sequel and make another kick ass Punisher movie.

Punisher

The only good Punisher was Tom Jane. Lexi Anderson's film was laughable at best, and Dolph Lundgren's suffered from the typical miasma of corny action flcks of the early 90's.

I was really looking foward to the next Tom Jane Punisher, cause I thought it was a good way to inro the character (like the 1st Spider-Man),and thought the next would be one King-Hell of a Punisher movie. Oh well.

And I'm definitely looking forward it Eminem's new album.

No matter what anyone says I personally thought that Ray Stevenson's Punisher was great. It seems to me that for every Punisher movie that they make, they are gradually getting better. Personally, I'm waiting for them to stick to the same campy format of crazy action and torture like the Ray Stevenson take and have Punisher in his suit he wears in the comics... white gloves, white books and an armored black suit... they could easily take a page from teh batman universe and not have the

Eminem owns all. Still, Crack a Bottle should have been the first single (not relegated to a street single before We Made You).

WTF?


Why do his eyes look like CGI??? I'm not sure what hurts more; that "piece" he's about to shoot me with or the daggers he's shooting from his eyes with that brooding look of malcontent. Too late. I'm already bored to death.

Do people still listen to his music? I'm being serious. Do they?

Can't wait for that album to hit and the follow up he's got coming later in the year. And "War Zone" was awesome, way better than the Thomas Jane flick...but only cuz the over-the-top violence was HEELAIRYUSS!
