The Punisher has been brought to the big screen three different times, and it's never quite worked out.

But now Marvel Studios has the rights back. And they can even make a tough-talking space raccoon work.

Are they already working on spoiling the vigilante? To celebrate the release of the Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-Ray, directors Joe & Anthony Russo did a Q&A and signing last week where they implied the violent vigilante

Light SPOILER ALERT for Winter Soldier ahead:

When Nick Fury is being chased by assassins dressed as police, he gets away when one of the squad cars gets smashed by a big yellow Penske moving truck.

Later, when Hydra double agent Sitwell is thrown from a car, he is hit by the SAME TRUCK!

Joe Russo teased that the driver might be more than just in the right place at the right time! He said:

"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."

We're not sure if he was joking or not, but now fans are speculating that this bad samaritan just might be Marvel's stone cold killer, on his way to a comeback!

So who could play the Punisher in a reboot?

We wouldn't mind seeing Thomas Jane back in the role. He loved it so much, he made his own Punisher short film. Plus, we hear that guy's Hung. LOLz!

    Personally this is a great marketing tool, yes bring back the vigilante. There was nothing wrong with the 2004 version, after all Jane did go into excessive training for a sequel but LIONSGATE messed up the viable franchsie, whilst years later MARVEL got back the movie rights.

    Jonathan Hensleigh did a very good script, however allot of people over criticised when a viable sequel if possible become available Jane is interested by all means. What Marvel need to do is have a descent cameo in a Marvel movie, to keep the character alive.
