Frank Grillo Says CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 Is an Origin Film for Crossbones and More
The next big film coming from Marvel is Captain America: The Winter Solider, and I'm really looking forward to it! The movie looks like it could actually be as big as The Avengers, but without the whole Avengers team. It will, however, be introducing a bunch of great new characters and villains including Falcon, Batroc the Leaper, The Winter Soldier, and Crossbones, who is being played by Frank Grillo.
Talking to CraveOnline Grillo discussed his character Brock Rumlow, a.k.a. Crossbones, and says that it's an origin film for him and the other new characters introduced.
"It’s an origin film. You meet people who are going to be around for a while, so they introduce the characters. It’s almost like it’s a series. It’s fun. I can’t say very much about it because Marvel’s very strict about what you’re allowed to say. The movie, we’ve seen bits of it, and it is spectacular."
When asked if Marvel had plans for Grillo to return as Crossbones in any future films he replied,
"They do actually. We’ll see what happens. We’ll see if the fans respond to Brock and how it goes."
He went on to say working with Marvel was a "great opportunity," and then explained,
"For any actor, it’s huge and you really get an understanding of that when you see guys like [Robert] Redford show up to do a role. What’s happening now is I think since all the Marvel movies had such a wide range of viewers globally that you’d be crazy not to want to be involved on some level with the Marvel people. They do it like nobody else. For me it’s a great opportunity because it’s an international film. It just raises your exposure that much more."
Everything I've seen from the movie so far has been amazing! It's looks so much bigger and better than I expected it to be. I'm really excited for it.
