I've always had great appreciation for Jane because even though his movie mostly sucked (it has its rare moments) he really is a fan of the character and someone very committed to give the fans a proper Punisher movie.
In a perfect world they'd offer him the role again if they'd ever make another Punisher movie, but both those scenarios are a dream that ain't ever coming true.
Falcon Set To Team-Up With Cap In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLIDER
Falcon joins Captain America to take on the Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie reportedly in talks to star. Excited for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, yet?
Sam "Falcon" Wilson will reportedly sign up to 'fight the good fight' alongside Captain America in the film's sequel. Of course Cap is a sidekick short following the events of Captain America: The First Avengers and will seemingly be at odds with his former best friend in Captain America: The Winter Solider. Anthony Mackie is in negotiations to star alongside Chris Evans in the sequel, which is being helmed by Community directors Joe and Anthony Russo. Keep in mind that Mackie is currently in negotiations and given Marvel's track record, this is far from set in stone. But at the very least, this casting news reveals that Sam Wilson will be fighting alongside Cap in the film. No details were revealed on the plot but I'd imagine that Sam is most likely going to be affiliated with S.H.I.E.L.D. in some capacity. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has previously stated that Cap will be the only post Avengers film to have a heavy S.H.I.E.L.D. presence.
Not surprised it will feature S.H.I.E.L.D. heavily if they're doing the Winter Soldier story with all the espionage stuff, etc.
Jane is someone who had no interest in comics before the Punisher, but developed a real respect for the genre and appreciation for its fans. hes a good actor too, and honestly, he wasnt what was wrong with the first Punisher movie.
I remember at an event he heard Brubaker was there and wanted words with him for killing off Steve Rogers. lol

As I'm sure you'll agree, this is incredibly exciting news. It was Joss Whedon's screenplay and skill behind the camera which made Marvel's The Avengers such an amazing comic book movie. There is currently no word on a release date (rumoured to be 2015) or what the planned TV series will involve, but it's hard to deny that now is a great time to be a fanboy!
