I suppose this could be a pretty big spoiler seeing how it reveals that the villain for Captain America 2 "The Winter Soldier" survives.

It was just confirmed that actor Frank Grillo will be playing Crossbones in Captain America 2, and now the actor has apparently confirmed an appearance in The Avengers 2.

The original source that broke the story about Frank Grillo's involvement with Marvel Studios, which the actor also confirmed on Twitter, spoke to Grillo who gave an affirmative to The Avengers 2.

The host of the Matthew Aaron Show let it be known that Grillo will be in The Avengers 2.

DarkHorizons.net (via Matthew Aaron Show) reports that Grillo is confirmed to play Crossbones in three Marvel Studios movies as well.

In the comics, back in House of M, Crossbones was a member of the Masters of Evil, which was led by The Hood. The Hood eventually went on to become a big part of Brian Michael Bendis' Avengers run, and interestingly enough, sought the Infinity Gems, which have been rumored to play a part in the Marvel Studios movies with mention of Thanos.

And the apparent Roger Wardell Marvel Studios Twitter scooper also let it be known that the Masters of Evil would be featured in The Avengers 2, albeit after this information already came out by the looks of it.

The Avengers 2 assembles May 1, 2015 with Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, and the Guardians of the Galaxy movie on August 1, 2014.
