In a bizarre move,Marvel has officially requested that production on the Punisher fan film THE DEAD CAN’T BE DISTRACTED must cease and that all marketing materials associated with the flick be removed from circulation. What is even more bizzare is that the writer of the original tale which inspired this fan flick, Greg Rucka, along with the comic’s artist, Marco Checchetto, both support this film. So why is Marvel playing it so heavy?

Sounds like Marvel might be making the same movie themselves and doesn't want any competition. Especially if it's a better job then theirs and even more so if the fan did it with no budget but loads of heart. A major studio can do CGI but heart is harder to fake..

To be fair, Marvel have got most things right in their recent movies. Watch Man of Steel if you want to see a lack of heart screw up a major character. Marvel just got the rights to Punisher back from Lionsgate this summer, so they probably want to give him a cameo in Agents of Shield and set him up for a movie in around 7 years time.
