Marvel has posted an image of a variant issue of Punisher War Journal that has Frank Castle wearing a very different costume.

Take the jump for the full spread.

Update:  As Salieri points out the Marvel Solicitation says it all

Pencils and 50/50 Covers by ARIEL OLIVETTI
“I want Frank Castle — the scourge of the underworld — to die in the Sonoma desert playing dress-up.” With that line, the all-new Hate Monger begins the execution ceremony of the Punisher — and nothing will ever be the same. Massacre after brutal massacre along the border brought Frank to the desert, but what horrible things does he find hiding behind the killings? What atrocities could possibly drive Frank to don a new costume? And how could it all go so terribly wrong? The American dream continues to become an unholy nightmare for Frank and everybody else in his orbit.

    Misdirection? or is this “Eradicator” Captain America?

    I like that train of thinking. I wonder who would be Captain America Boy, Steel Captain America, and Cyborg Captain America?

    I’m thinking the Iron Cap armor image leak could be “Steel” Captain America. The Machinesmith can be “Cyborg” Captain America. Patriot can be Captain America “Boy”

    Captain America Boy = Patriot

    Steel Captain America = Iron Man’s Captain America armour

    Cyborg Captain America = Bucky

    The solicitations claim that this is all the Hatemonger’s doing; he wants Frank Castle dead in a desert playing dress-up.

    Look at how the bullets make the teeth of the skull. How cute.
