Despite a whiskey bottle that defies all physics, a handful of cliches, and a few “How is that even possible?” moments, a mysterious short film starring Thomas Jane that crash landed on YouTube yesterday has some fans calling it the best Marvel film yet. But it’s not made by Marvel—at least I don’t think it is. If it is, it’s a clever piece of viral marketing, but Thomas Jane insists it’s a fan film.
“I wanted to make a fan film for a character I’ve always loved and believed in – a love letter to Frank Castle & his fans. It was an incredible experience with everyone on the project throwing in their time just for the fun of it. It’s been a blast to be a part of from start to finish — we hope the friends of Frank enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.”
Despite the flaws mentioned above, you can really tell it was a labor of love.
