Did they even see the Comic-Con trailer? That thing was in no way shape or form PG-13.
Neither was Dark Knight, yet Warner Bros. was able to get a PG-13 on that.
Umm, did you see the Comic-Con Punisher trailer? That thing had chairs hitting people in the eyes, massive amounts of gore and carnage and limbs going every which way. I don't remember any gore or flying limbs in The Dark Knight.
I admit, I haven't seen said trailer. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that I believe that TDK should have been rated R.

I just saw the trailer with all the gore... damn. How the hell do they think they're going to get a PG-13 out of this? It looks like it's supposed to be an over-the-top shoot 'em up with lots of blood and gore.

Got to love studio interference.

Not like it's going to matter. No one gives a shit about this film. The vigilante movie was done to death thirty years ago with Death Wish.

Also, Punisher is in NO WAY Batman. The film won't even gross 10% of The Dark Knight's final total.

The fact that TDK was PG-13 proves that the ratings system is a total joke.

TDK is rated for all audiences over here...

That's because you probably have a ratings systems that makes sense.

This is such a bad idea. I'm sure we'll end up with an unrated director's cut...
I think that's exactly what they're going for. From what I've read, the trailers have had a pretty lukewarm reaction from people online, so they're going to try and get the lucrative teen audience who will gladly see almost anything (as the unfunny reference and product placement filled "Genre Movie" franchise will attest to) to see it in theaters while making the bulk of their money on the "Unrated - The Version You Couldn't See in Theaters" DVD buying crowd.

I didn't really have any interest of seeing this one in theaters after seeing the trailers (though having Titus Pullo play the Punisher did initially get my attention) and I agree that this will only make it even more terrible. It will wind up like watching Deadwood on The Disney Channel.

How hard is it to make a decent Punisher movie? Jeez. The trailer out and out sucked. Way way over the top...lame.
