Costume Illustrator Teases 'Crossbones' Design For CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Practically confirming that we'll see Brock Rumlow (Frank Grillo) don his iconic threads as Crossbones, costume illustrator Christian Cordella discusses working on Captain America: The Winter Soldier!
Christian Cordell has served as the Costume illustrator for almost all of Marvel Studios' movies. Speaking with Beyond The Trailer at Comic-Con last weekend, Cordell talked a bit about his recent contribution to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. After going over designs for the titular hero and villain, Cordella revealed, "I worked on Crossbones for over four months just trying to figure out the bulletproof vest and the cargo pants. Maybe in the end, everybody's going to think 'Oh it's just a [generic] SWAT suit,' but actually it's not." When asked, Cordella went on to reveal what he enjoyed most about working on the character: "I was able to do all these different versions of how to make the cross work." he said. Referring to the actual crossbones that're plastered on the character's chest in the comics, "You don't want to just put two bones [across his chest] like a pirate. So [I went] through that label so that the fans can still recognize that it's the character, but not be so literally." Captain America: The Winter Soldier was filming in Cleveland last month, when actor Frank Grillo was spotted sporting a 'S.H.I.E.L.D. Strike team'-branded uniform as Brock Rumlow. Based on Christian Cordell's comments, it seems we'll definitely see Rumlow become the villainous Crossbones, rather than in a third sequel as Grillo has implied. No word on whether we'll see the skull mask, but check out the full interview with Cordella below.
