Frank Grillo, who was featured in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and can bee seen in this week's new premeire of The Purge: Anarchy, has stated he is interetested in playing another Marvel Comics character.

It's the Punisher.

Slight spoiler for The Purge: Anarchy: Apparently, Grillo's character in the movie is being compared to The Punisher as IGN saw an advanced screening and couldn't help but think Grillo resembled Frank Castle, and it's something Grillo, a practitioner of jujitsu, boxing and wrestling, hears all the time.

IGN: Did DeMonaco ever mention to you how much your character and the look of your character was something like The Punisher?

Grillo: He didn't, but I hear it every day.

IGN: I'm watching it and thinking, "He should have been The Punisher!"

Grillo: I hear it three dozen times a day.

At a press junket for The Purge: Anarchy, Grillo also offered the following:

"I’ve been bombarded with people asking me about the Punisher. It’s amazing. The interesting thing is my friend Chris Evans started out as the Human Torch, and then he became Captain America. So I’m going to have to follow up on this.”

Regarding following up on The Punisher, it might be a stretch as Grillo continues with mention that we might see Crossbones soon.

“I’m signed onto a multi-contract deal with Marvel. Without me saying anything, because they will kill me … we’re hoping, yeah. It looks soon.”
