Last time we saw Crossbones, he was in a critical condition after Captain America and Falcon got him wrecked with a Helicarrier. He survived and he’s ready to comeback in Civil War. What are his intentions? Not good ones of course, but Frank Grillo revealed something about Crossbones’ plans in a HuffPostLive interview.
Grillo was asked by a fan about his upcoming role in Captain America: Civil War and he answered with a bit of reluctance, fearing not to disclose something Marvel wouldn’t want. Yet, he talked about Crossbones being angry and doing whatever it takes to get revenge against Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans).
“Fan #1: What can you tell us Crossbones’ mental state/head space/motivations after the events of The Winter Soldier and moving on into Civil War?
“Frank Grillo: Well, that’s a great question and obviously you’ve seen The Winter Soldier… Brock Rumlow is in bad shape and it was because of Cap and he’s not happy. I’ll tell ya, coming back as Crossbones, his alter-ego, he is not a happy guy and there’s nothing that’s going to get in the way of him doing what he’s set out to do, which I cannot tell you or Marvel will have me taken away to a place with no one knows of. You never want to mess with Marvel, but yeah, he is out for a good time. Crossbones. And so he’s going to have fun”. (via Comicbookmovie)
The special thing about Crossbones, according to Frank Grillo
Grillo is very excited about his part in Captain America: Civil War, as it’s a great experience to embrace the character in full and to have co-stars like Robert Downey and Chris Evans. Besides the greatness of the movie and the cast, Grillo has expressed his glee towards Bucky Barnes’ costume, and not only once.
For Collider he said that after putting the costume on, his whole DNA changed, and in the same interview for HuffPost, when he was asked by a fan if he ever keeps a souvenir from the set, he gave a hilarious answer, related to the costume, of course.
“Fan #2: Ever keep a souvenir from a shoot? What did you wish that could keep?
FG: I wish I could have kept part of that Crossbones costume cause it may be the coolest thing that I’ve ever put on. The mask and they really did a great job. Probably six or seven fittings, and the thing was just… And I think out of all the costumes that I saw and I didn’t see all of them… but the Crossbones costume, which isn’t a secret, it’s all over the internet, evoked the most visceral responses from people. People were really taken aback by this costume, so I wish I could’ve kept some of that and maybe… *shifts to a whisper* …I’ll steal something from Marvel, I don’t know. *laughs*” (via Comicbookmovie)
So Crossbones is a man on a mission, and that might be taking revenge on those who have almost killed him, respectively Captain America and Falcon.
