Frank Grillo teased that Crossbones could be set for the MCU again

September 19th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Frank Grillo is at it again, teasing that his character, Brock Rumlow, AKA Crossbones, may be back in the MCU despite meeting a flaming death in Civil War (here).

Currently talking about the beginning of production about the beginning of filming on the new Purge movie (here) and dropped a pretty big tease about his possible return to the MCU.

One of the most annoying things in Captain America: Civil War was how quickly Crossbones was killed, dying in the opening action scene.

But it seems that, as hinted before, Crossbones could be back: “It’s great to be part of Marvel too, and I have three boys who are fanatical about Marvel,” Grillo said, “and I was surprised not too long ago because there is some news that nobody knows yet, to do with my character, that’s going to be really interesting and I’m excited about that.”

Now, we’ve been thinking about this and reckon there’s a couple of possible ways Brock will return – firstly, he could simply have survived. It’s unlikely but it’s comic books so all bets are technically off.

But, more likely, we reckon he could appear pre-Crossbones in the Captain Marvel movie which we already know will be set in the 1990s (here), so perhaps more of the technology used in Ant-man and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 to de-age actors could be employed here?

Anyway, what do you all think? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
