Villain Cast for CAP. AMERICA Sequel, SIN CITY 2 News, More

 

Actor Frank Grillo will be playing Crossbones in 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Variety reports.

Crossbones played a major role in the "Death of Captain America" comic book storyline (written by Ed Brubaker, who created the concept of "The Winter Soldier"), where he was instrumental in the assassination of Steve Rogers. That storyline led to Bucky — The Winter Soldier — becoming Captain America for an extended period, before Steve Rogers returned to the role in 2011.

Grillo, who recently played roles in films including End of Watch and The Grey, joins a cast including Chris Evans (Captain America), Sebastian Stan (Bucky/Winter Soldier) and Anthony Mackie (The Falcon). Captain America: The Winter Soldier is scheduled for release on April 4, 2014.
