The plot rumors on the third “Captain America” installment “Civil War” have been circulating as the story arc definitely triggered the imagination of comic fans who want to see the higly charged political and physical battles on the big screen.
As Marvel wants it, there is hardly any leak on the plot that is still being developed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the directorial tandem of the smash hit “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” which was shown last summer.
One of the give-aways is the role of Brock Rumlow, played by Frank Grillo.
Comic fans are familiar with the fact that Rumlow will eventually evolve into Crossbones.
Grillo mentioned to Collider that he will stick around: “I have a multi-contract deal with Marvel.
The movie was an origin film for that character.
If you know the comic, he has a significant presence.
So, knock wood.
With Marvel, you can’t say very much, but I’m cautiously optimistic that we’ll have some fun in the next few Marvel movies.” Which seems reasonable since Crossbones has a large role to play in Civil War.
Screen Rant recalls: Crossbones played a fairly large part in the comic source material for the third Captain America film, shooting Steve Rogers in the shoulder following Rogers’ surrender to the pro-superhero registration faction, before being tracked down by Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Longtime comic book readers know that Crossbones was responsible for an attempted assassination of Captain America at the behest of the Red Skull after Marvel’s Civil War event – if Rumlow is indeed to be the big bad of the Civil War movie, it begs the question of whether or not Marvel will include this.
Is this what Grillo is hinting at? As always, he is sworn to secrecy and he tweets as such:
Will Crossbones be the one to end Chris Evans’ Marvel stint?
