Is Joe Russo Teasing A PUNISHER Cameo In CAPTAIN AMERICA: TWS?

The director is probably joking around a bit here, but he does point out an interesting easter egg in the Captain America sequel that seems to have slipped by most of us. Was a certain Marvel vigilante driving a certain truck during a couple of pivotal scenes? Click on for more..

Coming Soon caught up with Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo at Amoeba Music in Hollywood California, where they were on hand to host a special signing event for the home video release of the Marvel sequel. After joking around with Joe about his own cameo in the movie as one of the surgeons working on Nick Fury, the director brings up another interesting appearance (well, his vehicle anyway!) from, what sounds like, an established Marvel Comics character.



When Nick Fury is being attacked in the streets, he gets the moment he needs to escape when a yellow Penske truck slams into his attackers. Later, when Agent Sitwell is thrown into traffic, guess what hits him? Not just a Penske truck, but the Russos reveal, the very same Penske truck. "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."

The Punisher isn't mentioned by name, but there aren't that many Marvel characters who'd fit that description and would be so ready and willing to take a life! Again, it sounds like he's messing about as far as the One-Shot etc goes, but it's pretty cool to think that ol' Frank Castle might have had a hand in both rescuing Fury and taking out Sitwell! I'm sure many of you will be going back to watch your Blu-rays and DVDs of the movie to double check this..I know I am.
