Frank Grillo talks Crossbones' return in 'Captain America: Civil War'

Crossbones

Frank Grillo’s role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier opened a big door. Although he was only in about half an hour of the film, there’s already rampant speculation about his return as the villainous Crossbones in Captain America: Civil War. And no one’s more pumped about it than Grillo, who loves the character.

“[Winter Soldier] was only a taste of what’s to come with the next film, and I couldn’t be more humbled and excited,” Grillo said. “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.”

Hopeful for a return, Grillo talked about his love for Crossbones, noting that, “He’s a badass. He is just vicious. I like the idea that it’s no holds barred. I love the physicality. We all know what Crossbones represents in his world.”

And Grillo’s aware of the other rumors surrounding the film, a fact that gets him even more excited at the possibility of returning. “I hear Iron Man is in Captain America 3—he’s got a big role—and the Black Panther. It sounds like this Civil War is going to be pretty interesting.”

Captain America: Civil War is set to hit theaters May 6, 2016.
