So odds are we'll see Zemo in this bitch too.
Hellsing - 10/29/2012, 2:13 PM
wouldn't be surprised if they replace Lukin with Zemo or combine elements both of the characters.

Awesome, re-read the red menace ultimate collection today as well, and crossbones has a big part in that storyline haha weird

Crossbones is a beast in the comics. Hopefully they do him justice.
CaptainObvious - 10/29/2012, 2:18 PM
I know nothing about this character so I'll wait and see how it goes.

"When Captain America throws his mighty shield,
All those who chose to oppose his shield must yield.
If he’s led to a fight and a duel is due,
Then the red and white and the blue’ll come through
When Captain America throws his mighty shield!"




And this is why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my most anticipated.

Alright, there's some news!!
CATFA: Red Skull
CATWS: Crossbones
CA3: Baron Zemo

Want Zemo now, but too many villians will ruin the movie.

DioFoRio - 10/29/2012, 2:33 PM
@Tony I remember that rumor. Not sure how much truth there was to it.
KaneVonDoom - 10/29/2012, 2:38 PM
Shit yeah!

@MisterMagurlypse
But Crossbones isn't the one pulling the strings, he's a crony type villain. There's gotta be 3 villains in this one.
JordanKing - 10/29/2012, 2:44 PM
Apparently the Variety article also confirms Cobie Smulders will return as Mariah Hill for this one. So yay I guess?

Can't wait for Phase 2!
superotherside - 10/29/2012, 2:45 PM
Awesome, glad Crossbones will be in it! Just made me more excited for this movie. I wonder if Zemo and Sin will be in it as well... hmmmm...
TheFirstAvenger97 - 10/29/2012, 2:46 PM
I'm with you gambitfreak! " when Captain America throws his mighty shield those who choose to oppose his shield must you yield, unless your plane or a bomb or some ice then he'll choose to take a nap because the ice seems nice when Captain America throws his mighty shield!"
lapress - 10/29/2012, 2:51 PM
Is Crossbones a main villain or a secondary one?
JerBear - 10/29/2012, 2:54 PM
@lapress
Secondary

This is most definitely my #1 most anticipated Marvel film for 'Phase Two'. Sh!t's about to get real. :D
DocDangerous - 10/29/2012, 3:03 PM
Alright Marvel. You didn't ask me if I was interested in playing Bucky.
Now you pass me over for Crossbones?
What the hell?
Greengo - 10/29/2012, 3:03 PM
Cool beans. He definitely has the cheekbones for it.
souhunter - 10/29/2012, 3:03 PM

TheSoulEater - 10/29/2012, 3:04 PM
Called it....
EggsBenedict - 10/29/2012, 3:08 PM
How big is he? Is he big enough to play Crossbones? From what I remember of him in The Shield, although he's ripped he's kinda small? Maybe I'm wrong...
jimpinto24 - 10/29/2012, 3:08 PM
AWESOME!!!!!
avengers72 - 10/29/2012, 3:14 PM
OH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!! bring on zemo!
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 10/29/2012, 3:14 PM
Marvel us just handing out the goodies, baby!

For Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we (may) get all kinds of treats. We get mother[frick]ing Winter Soldier for this...



We get a confirmed actor for the role of the bad@$$ Crossbones...



We just may (just may) get an appearance, or even an easter egg, of Sin...


(Seeing as how she plays an important part of the Winter Soldier story arc).

We will get an updated/redesigned Captain America suit for this movie...


(Preferably, this design). ;)

We're gonna have Sharon Carter in this...



And the Falcon as well...



This is just simply shaping up to be one helluva great Captain America film. :)
GUNSMITH - 10/29/2012, 3:21 PM
@SPIDEY= IF THEY DON'T CHANGE THE COSTUME AND INPROVE IT TO THAT CONCEPT ART I THINK I'LL BE PTURBED..CAPTAIN AMERICA IN AVENGERS WAS COOL BUT THE FLOW OF THE COSTUME TO ME WAS WACK, THAT HELMET JUST WAS DERPY

TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 10/29/2012, 3:21 PM
