Subscribe To Why The Punisher's Warehouse Shootout Was So Scary, According To The Stars Updates
Spoilers below for Season 1 of Netflix's The Punisher.
Netflix's super violent superhero series The Punisher has almost as many shootouts as it does episodes. Jon Bernthal's Frank Castle gets himself into a quite a few scraps over the course of the season, but he isn't the only one that got in on the action. Homeland Security agents Dinah Madani (Amber Rose Revah) and Sam Stein (Michael Nathanson) get involved in their own hectic shootout against the bad guys in a warehouse filled with mannequins. Similar to a real life experience, filming the scene got a little scary for the actors, as CinemaBlend's Nick Venable learned from Amber Rose Revah.
Amber Rose Revah plays original character Dinah Madani in The Punisher, who makes it her mission to avenge the death of her former partner. Eventually, this put her in direct contact with Frank Castle and she learned that they both share the same enemies. Madani tricked said enemies into storming a warehouse, where she and her Homeland Security crew were waiting to spring a trap. But even though all the actors were firing blanks during the filming of the action-heavy scene, Revah forgot to put in her earplugs. So she heard a whole bunch of guns firing around her, making it feel all the more intense and legitimately dangerous. (Not to mention mannequins being creepy most of the time anyway.)
Michael Nathanson, who played Agent Sam Stein, was also involved in the shootout and he agreed that it could be pretty scary. A bunch of fierce stuntmen chasing after you with guns would be enough to make anything a little nerve-wracking! But, as it turns out, it wasn't all bad. When CinemaBlend spoke with Nathanson about the scene, here's what he told us.
While the actors themselves may not be used to being in a firefight, The Punisher has no shortage of characters who are professionally trained soldiers and government agents. In order to make sure that the show was as accurate as possible, professional consultants were on hand during filming to make sure that every detail was correct. Amber Rose Revah, in particular, loved this element, because it helped make her look all the more badass on camera.
You can see both Amber Rose Revah and Michael Nathanson getting their hands dirty in this action scene and several others by watching The Punisher Season 1, which is out on Netflix right now.
