Punisher : the villain explains why the series has waived her look super-gore
Central character of the series The Punisher, Jigsaw will return in season 2, but his treatment annoys the fans. His interpreter, took up his defence.
In the comics (as well as Punisher : war Zone), Jigsaw, a opponents, the most formidable of Frank Castle, sported a recognizable appearance among a thousand, to the fact of its innumerable sacrifices, distorting a face completely ravaged.

However, Netflix has unveiled several weeks in the season 2 of The Punisher, he should not expect to find the face of the scarred of this guy. Yet at the end of the previous season, his opponent had abandoned him after he was sprayed in the face through several mirrors, leaving it disfigured for life.
But the first promotional photos and trailers have shown that the character would be treated with much more sobriety and realism in the episodes put online as of January 18, 2019. A disappointment for all those who hoped to find the big bad bustling of a madness close to that of the comics.

Why is he refusing ? According to Ben Barnes, his interpreter, precisely in order to respect one of the main themes of the show, namely the treatment of veterans in the United States. In fact, the appearance of his injuries, the choice to promote one’s inner wounds rather than its traumas, physical, and finally the decision to give the character a mask, are the result of a documentation that is precise enough, that has shared the actor on the social networks.
The subject of the conditions of life of the veterans being particularly sensitive in the United States, one can well understand why The Punisher has chosen this path. But the fans appreciate it ?
