Has Punisher entered the MCU?

I'm Back


The Punisher has returned but you did not even know it!

Marvel is so sneaky!

As shown in the post below the Punisher was one of a big group of heroes whose film rights have recently been reverted to Marvel.

With 3 movies under his belt already one would expect we would hear something on the Punisher.  Marvel has been silent. I have been patiently awaiting for news. One hope was that he might appear in some way in the upcoming Netflix Defenders series featuring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.

Punisher and Winter Soldier Connections?
Comments by the Russo brothers are generating speculation that Punisher may have made a quasai appearance in the movie Captain America the Winter Soldier.

"The man who drives that truck," Joe deadpans, joking that the driver is a candidate for a future Marvel One-Shot, "Is very highly trained. He thinks on his own terms. He's got a plan and a very specific skill set." - See more at: http://www.superheromoviesnews.com/2014/09/was-punisher-suppose-to-cameo-in-captain-america-the-winter-soldier.html#sthash.mi24UAAu.dpuf

In an interview posted by Comingsoon.com the directors of Captain America the Russo Brothers reveal that the Penske truck that slams into assassins hunting down Nick Fury, then later runs over Hydra agent Sitwell was driven by a very specific person.

Joe Russo says specifically:

"The man who drives that truck... Is very highly trained. He thinks on his own terms. He's got a plan and a very specific skill set."

Before this revelation I think many people assumed that it was two different Penske trucks that randomly effected the action scenes.  This effectively means there is another story here, an unknown character with a "specific skill set" intervened within the movie.

Who could this character be?

 To me the lethality, penchant for flying under the radar and skills point toward the Punisher.  My personal hope is that we get more of the Punisher very soon.  Potentially, a DVD one shot that focused on his role in the Winter Soldier would be interesting.

Who will play him? My personal hope would be Thomas Jane but I have not heard anything yet.


Is Frank Castle driving the Penske truck?
