Frank Grillo "Cautiously Optimistic" About Returning In CAPTAIN AMERICA 3

Frank Grillo "Cautiously Optimistic" About Returning In CAPTAIN AMERICA 3

During a little sit down with the guys over at Collider, the man who would be Crossbones got the chance to discuss his villainous role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and where he believes the future of the character will go. Check it out!

On the chances of getting to appear in Captain America's third outing:
I mean, I’m cautiously optimistic that you will see me in the not too distant future in the next installment of Captain America.

On being aware of the possibilty of being in further sequels:
Very early on the Russos said, ‘Look, this is an origin film for this character. We’re gonna discover who this is and this is a big movie with a lot of moving parts, but we’re gonna discover you in this film and, you know, here’s the information about who Brock Rumlow turns into and blah, blah, blah.’ And so we’ve had multiple discussions about what comes after that, that thing. So, you know, it’s obvious Rumlow is covered in rubble and burned to crisp at the end, but you see he’s still there. They don’t do that for no reason. 

Finally, Grillo shares his thoughts on rather or not he should have a costume:
He needs a costume! Coincidentally it could be a mask with a crossbones on it.

Additionally, Grillo also got to discuss his involvement in The Raid remake. See below.

Well, yeah. I mean, we were officially offered the film, and so that was gonna go in September and now that doesn’t go until January. So, you know, that’s the way the movie business is. You’re officially attached until there is no more movie, you know? But yeah, this is something that I’m planning on doing. Yeah.

Stay tuned to CBM for more On Captain America and other Marvel-related projects as news follows.

He'll be back.
DEVLIN712 - 6/14/2014, 11:59 AM
He should get serumed up and team with Baron Zemo for Cap 3
themidnightking - 6/14/2014, 12:03 PM
He'll most definitely will be back
XF14 - 6/14/2014, 12:04 PM
Indubitably, this actor was a highlight among many. Look forward to his return
Abary - 6/14/2014, 12:04 PM
I would be great to see him back for Captain America 3. They need to make it the best it can be if it goes up against BvS.
ThePowerCosmic - 6/14/2014, 12:06 PM
Oh they totally set him up for a return!
JoJo1982 - 6/14/2014, 12:09 PM
He's a Underrated actor

I thought he was great for the few scenes we saw him in Cap 2
JoJo1982 - 6/14/2014, 12:10 PM
Crossbones pop back in cap3

Crossbones tell Cap, "time for a rematch"
themidnightking - 6/14/2014, 12:17 PM
I just wish that we could've seen the full Crossbones vs Falcon fight
SuperCat - 6/14/2014, 12:19 PM
He has to wear the mask in the next one.
ruadh - 6/14/2014, 12:21 PM
I'll be the nitpicky jerk and point out that the mask doesn't have crossbones on it.
charlie2094 - 6/14/2014, 12:22 PM
I'm sure he'll be back, to great to see him return as a full-on Crossbones
AlexanderLykins - 6/14/2014, 12:23 PM
MCU gonna MCU.
MakluIV - 6/14/2014, 12:30 PM
I don't think he was dead at the end of Cap 2. They were definitely setting him up for the next film. I'm sure he'll have the badass Crossbones mask in Cap 3. He said it himself, this was an origin story for Brock Rumlow, which means the next logical step in his story would be Crossbones.
McNyagano - 6/14/2014, 12:31 PM
He did a good job in the film. He'll certainly be back, no doubt about that.

Hail hydra;)
MrBlackJack - 6/14/2014, 12:31 PM
He'll be back. They always come crawling back...

*chugs down whiskey*
sKeemAn - 6/14/2014, 12:38 PM
He definitely played his role well. It'll be good to see how they make him stronger. I see him being a formidable foe for Cap.
Phronesis - 6/14/2014, 12:40 PM
I hope he returns. A nice character leaving me wanting more from him. Frank Grillo, along with every one else, played his character fantastically.

TWS is just one of the most exquisitely made CBM's ever. The best this year no doubt. Can't wait to buy on DVD.
MercwithMouth - 6/14/2014, 12:42 PM
Considering he and Sharon Carter killed Cap in Civil War...

He damn well better be back to do that again.
Phronesis - 6/14/2014, 12:44 PM
The way they incorporated Arnim Zola was without-a-doubt just genuis. I love how you could still see him express emotion. Loved it.

Captain America "Operation Re-Birth"

'After the destruction in Age of Ultron Captain America forms a team which includes the King of Wakanda and launches an operation in the hunt for remnants of Hydra but little does he know that their is a bigger menace on the way'

I should work for Marvel
Mercwitham0uth - 6/14/2014, 12:50 PM
I thought he was awesome in the film. Look forward to seeing bim in his gear.
Phronesis - 6/14/2014, 12:51 PM
@Omarvls No... No you shouldn't.
Enphlieuwince - 6/14/2014, 12:51 PM
He would've been a fine Frank Castle too.
DrDoom - 6/14/2014, 12:55 PM
Of course Crossbones will be back for Cap 3. This movie was just the start for him.
Jhuntdaprodigy - 6/14/2014, 12:55 PM
I recall hearing a while back that Grillo had a 3-Picture deal and that he would also be appearing in the Avengers sequel, as well as Cap 3. Since Baron Von Stucker is the villain in the opening act of AOU, it wouldn't be difficult to imagine that he tries to make a "miracle" out of Rumlow and send him to take on The Avengers along with Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver. We could maybe see some kind of Masters Of Evil-Lite type thing going on. As for Crossbones killing Cap, I highly doubt that's going to happen. Evans is going to be in Avengers 3 so I'm guessing that Cap won't die until the end of the film. And if it's really going to be a Thanos story, I don't really see where Crossbones would fit into it.
ruadh - 6/14/2014, 12:57 PM posted some Liefeld art...what's wrong?!

Also, I'd like to bring up the noise Grillo was making a while ago about a possible Avengers: Age of Ultron appearance. Before Winter Soldier was even released, he was talking about his contract with Marvel interviews, and hinting towards being involved in the filming for A2, as well of course as a followup appearance in Cap 3.
Equivocal - 6/14/2014, 12:58 PM

"You’re officially attached until there is no more movie, you know?"

I wish the same could be say about the FF reboot,
oh well
Grillo was great in all of his scenes in the movie,
we'll wait in see what's happening with hime

Omarvls - 6/14/2014, 1:02 PM
By the time Age of Ultron is released

Batman v Superman "Dawn of Justice " would probably have a 90% to 10% advantage against Cap 3 in the May 6 2016 most anticipated film

I think Marvel should have a mid credit scene in Age of Ultron that goes something like this

Captain America is seen jumping from a plane and parachuting down into a jungle soon he is being chased by drones in the air and is seen dodging force fields (You come to realize this place is pretty tech heavy) soon he comes to some type of building he is being scanned by a small drone

Captain America " I am here to see the King"
T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) "Welmcome Steve Rodgers, How can I help you"

Just that scene would probably give Cap 3 20% more against BvS

the raid remake? the movie is been out for like 2 year or so. part 2 is comming soon and hollywood is making a remake already??? they must have paid them asians a lot of money for that movie deal. I'll that the hollywood one is gonna SUCK!
ComicsBornAndBred - 6/14/2014, 1:05 PM
I want him back and he will prob be back. Crossbones is badass and Grillo is as well. He needs to come back for Cap 3 and even future installments.
ELgUaSoN - 6/14/2014, 1:08 PM

Shiny. He was Awesome.

bobevanz - 6/14/2014, 1:17 PM
He's in the brubaker run, they could use him exactly like that along with bringing back red skull and theres your billion dollar captain america
dethpillow - 6/14/2014, 1:29 PM

I really wanted Manu as Crossbones, but Frank converted me, he was an awesome Brock and I bet even better Crossbones! Can't wait for Cap 3, [frick] BvS! Kidding, if I had to choose the same day, I really don't know which one I'd see first, hmmm...I truly think one will move, be stupid for both studios not to...Russos' definitely made the "battle" interesting at least...think Snyder will deliver big-time with BvS too!

Watch the trailer to Purge 2, he's pretty much The Punisher in that movie

Haha! Liefield sucks so bad.
