Frank Grillo (Warrior, The Grey), 47 years old, has seriously seriously hit the gym to bulk up for his part as Crossbones in the upcoming CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. His rigorous workout (2000 daily crunches etc.) was previously reported on and he has now tweeted the results.

Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson have been seen filming so it's safe to assume that soon Grillo will be joining them on set.











CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER releases domestically on 4th April 2014.

Agreed, still a bit skinny. Maybe they will use cgi at some point.

Impressive... not to complain, i mean hr could be bigger but not everyone can look like Dwayne Johnson haha hes an impreesive actor and im looking forward to his performance as Crossbones!

Looks good, but we need a shirtless pic to see the actual result. Honestly, he hasn't really bulked up any since the last photo we saw. Hope his costume is good.

Now that you mention it, he does look like Crixus. They could play twins in some movies. Both are about the same height too.

He'll probably have some muscle padding in his suit.

He looks good. @Tony93 Same here.

He has already done infinitely better than Tom Hardy.

Crossbones doesn't need to look bigger than Cap himself. He's just a regular human. He just needs to look like he ca kick ass.

When are you guys gonna realize that people can't get as big as the comics without the use of steroids or training more than a year for it?

It's almost like you guys have never worked out before.

at least the fight scenes should look cool in the winter soldier.
UltimateWarrior - 4/21/2013, 2:33 PM
I didn't know he was playing Crossbones, and that's a good surprise. I hope we get more pics of Cap's awesome suit soon, and hopefully Winter Soldier too.

@ darthjericho

don't forget falcon & batroc as well,they should look pretty good as well.
UltimateWarrior - 4/21/2013, 3:28 PM
Marvel72: Very true. Personally I think their rushing Winter Soldier being in this film. I think they should have hinted at him during the film, then reveled him during a post or mid credit scene. There being Winter Soldier, Batroc, and Crossbones might make the film to crammed full.
AmazingFantasy - 4/21/2013, 3:35 PM
Skinny?

I'd like to see your progress lol.
He's pretty good, I reckon no one can look like the comic books..
marvel72 - 4/21/2013, 3:38 PM
@ darthjericho

yeah i agree,the winter soldier should of been an after the credits scene in the captain america sequel & introduced properly in captain america 3.

i like Grillo. He was great in "Grey" (best supporting actor nomination would be nice).

If he was younger he would make a good Batman, i guess.

I wouldn't be surprised if somebody cast him as the Punisher anytime soon.

@TelaVizion
How was Evans small in CA:TFA?

Just wonder how crossbones character is gonna be a threat to Cap in the movies know the comic book character is expert in hand to hand combat weapons etc but he should pose no threat to a enhanced human such as Cap Christ he can lift a motorbike with three women on above his head and take on a bunch of Chitari single handed so wonder if there gonna ramp up the crossbones character?
