Frank Grillo Confirms Crossbones In Captain America 3 Civil War



Frank Grillo quickly became a fan-favorite following his debut as Brock Rumlow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Now it's learned that Frank Grillo will be back for Captain America: Civil War, and judging from his conversation with EW, Grillo will be suited up as Crossbones.

“[Winter Soldier] was only a taste of what’s to come with the next film, and I couldn’t be more humbled and excited. They just kind of called and said, ‘What kind of shape are you in? We’re going to need a body scan.’ They scan your body so that whatever you wear fits you like a glove.”

Grillo also talked about the character of Crossbones.

“He’s a badass. He is just vicious. I like the idea that it’s no holds barred. I love the physicality. We all know what Crossbones represents in his world.”

Captain America: Civil War also stars Robert Downey Jr. and introduces Chadwick Boseman as the Black Panther, with Grillo excited about the possibilities.

“I hear Iron Man is in Captain America 3—he’s got a big role—and the Black Panther. It sounds like this Civil War is going to be pretty interesting.”

Captain America: Civil War has a May 6, 2016 release.

On a side note, Grillo has been getting comparisons to The Punisher for his role in The Purge: Anarchy, which you may want to check out.
