Marvel has added yet another star to it’s ever-growing cast of characters for Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the form of Frank Grillo as Crossbones, the Red Skulls’s right-hand man. How he’ll be represented in the sequel is another question though, given we haven’t heard anything about a re-appearance from the Red Skull (he appeared in the original story) and I certainly doubt Hugo Weaving will be back in the role.
Last week we reported that Frank Grillo (The Grey, Gangster Squad) was screen testing for the role of Crossbones in the sequel, and now Variety have confirmed that Grillo has indeed got the role. They also confirm that Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders will return as Nick Fury and Maria Hill respectively, although that was expected. What do you think? Share your thoughts below.
