Frank Grillo says Captain America: The Winter Soldier is just the beginning for Crossbones

November 27th, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Next year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, will introducenew villains into the Marvel Cinematic Universe including Batroc the Leaper, The Winter Soldier, whoever Robert Redford is playing possibly , and Crossbones, played by Frank Grillo.

CraveOnline got a chance to speak with Grillo and he says that, unlike many Marvel villains, this won’t be the last we see of many of the characters introduced in the film:

“It’s an origin film. You meet people who are going to be around for a while, so they introduce the characters. It’s almost like it’s a series. It’s fun. I can’t say very much about it because Marvel’s very strict about what you’re allowed to say. The movie, we’ve seen bits of it, and it is spectacular.”

We’ll no doubt see Anthony Mackie’s Falcon, and potentially The Winter Soldier himself again, but when asked if Marvel has plans for Grillo to return as Crossbones, he replied:

“They do actually. We’ll see what happens. We’ll see if the fans respond to Brock and how it goes.”

Grillo also spoke about the chance to work on a Marvel film which he acknowledges is a  “great opportunity.”

“For any actor, it’s huge and you really get an understanding of that when you see guys like [Robert] Redford show up to do a role. What’s happening now is I think since all the Marvel movies had such a wide range of viewers globally that you’d be crazy not to want to be involved on some level with the Marvel people. They do it like nobody else. For me it’s a great opportunity because it’s an international film. It just raises your exposure that much more.”

The story picks up where Marvel’s The Avengers left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington D.C.

The Anthony and Joe Russo directed film stars Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Scarlet Johansson, Frank Grillo, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Georges St-Pierre.

The movie hits theaters on April 4th, 2014.
