reality? its a movie based on a fictional comic.. im just teasin, i know what you mean. I'm just saying the article you commented on suggested (and i agree with) the only reason he would have involved himself , while otherwise focusing on mobsters and thugs. would be if nick fury called in a favor. So i guess it would be just weird if he for whatever reason ended im an elevator full of gov guys fighting against captain america. but i was really only pointing out the difference in the article to what you said.
i personally think this is just someone over analyzing a movie. the suggestion that he has the same yellow trucks but with the different trailers seems more like production trying to reuse there vehicles for stunts. not the punisher being in the right spot at the exact right time to save fury. beyond that theres not much to really suggest hes in the movie. aside from the quote but i think thats just someone adding intrigue to the concepts of the movie.
