It looks like there's a chance that The Grey and Warrior actor Frank Grillo could end up playing the villain Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Solider. The actor took to twitter after he had a meeting with Marvel saying,
See Ya LA. It was a a good trip. Marvel was a lot of fun. Be cool if it works out. #CaptainAmerica.
The actor's tweet came shortly after a rumor hit Twitter from comedy talk radio personality Matthew Aaron to @BRIANMBENDIS revealing that Grillo has screen-tested for Marvel and "is THIS CLOSE to getting the role of Crossbones in the Marvel movies."
Put the two tweets together and we have the news that Grillo is very close to landing the role of Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Crossbones a.k.a. Brock Rumlow, is an assassin and mercenary who has crossed paths with other villains such as Red Skull, Baron Zemo, and Hydra. Like Black Widow, he doesn't have any super powers, he just knows how to kick ass! In the comics, Crossbones carried out the assassination of Steve Rogers. I guess we'll find out soon enough the role that this character will play in the movie.
What do you think about the possibility of Grillo being cast in the movie? How big of a role do you think the villain will play in it?
