Captain America: The Winter Soldier dropped a lot of hints about the future of the MCU. One villain that about because of it was Crossbones. Though he was carted away in pain at the end of the movie he’s still very much alive. And apparently, he WILL be in Captain America: Civil War. At least according to the actor who plays him, Frank Grillo.
[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….We all know what Crossbones represents in his world, so when they called me and said we gotta do the body scan, I was like ‘Okay!’
‘Captain America: Civil War’ hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
