Julie Benz (Rambo, “Dexter,” “Angel”) hit the green carpet of The Incredible Hulk premiere Sunday night at the Universal City Walk to support Gale Anne Hurd, who not only produced this Friday’s Universal release, but also Benz’s upcoming action-thriller, Punisher: War Zone. Benz, who confessed she’s a “big Hulk fan,” stopped to chat with ComingSoon.net/Superhero Hype! about the new “Punisher” film, for which the trailer should be out “within the next three weeks,” according to Hurd.
CS/SHH!: What can you tell me about “Punisher: War Zone”?
Julie Benz: It comes out in December and you’re going to see a much darker, edgier Punisher than you did in the past.
CS/SHH!: Did being a brunette help you get into character for the film?
Benz: Oh yeah. I play this kind of New York Italian cop’s wife and had to do an accent and everything. It was great. I’ve never been brunette before and I loved it.
CS/SHH!: Tell me more about your character.
Benz: I have a small daughter in the movie. Stuff happens and I get very angry.
CS/SHH!: Why do you get so angry?
Benz: There’s no good guy to me. Everyone is bad.
