While rumors say Daniel Bruhl has been cast as a villain in Captain America: Civil War, he won’t be alone. Frank Grillo tells Entertainment Weekly that he just got a call from Marvel Studios, and is set to return in the role of Crossbones. His alter-ego was on display in The Winter Soldier, and thanks to a disfiguring final battle, he has a vendetta and reason to put on the iconic villain’s costume.
”It was only a taste of what’s to come with the next film, and I couldn’t be more humbled and excited. He’s a badass. He is just vicious,” Grillo said of the character. “I like the idea that it’s no holds barred. I love the physicality. It changes the way you look; it changes the way you feel. 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!’”
