American actor, Frank Grillo’s 30 minutes in the Captain America: The Winter Soldier introduced us to Brock Rumlow, although he didn’t transform into a supervillain. He is set to return in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.
Speaking with EW, Grillo said: “[The Winter Soldier] was only a taste of what’s to come with the next film, and I couldn’t be more humbled and excited.
They just kind of called and said, ‘What kind of shape are you in? We’re going to need a body scan.’ They scan your body so that whatever you wear fits you like a glove.”
Frank Grillo adds, “He’s [Crossbones] a badass. He is just vicious. I like the idea that it’s no holds barred. I was 15 pounds bigger when I did Cap 2, and I’ll put another 15 pounds on to do Cap 3.
I love the physicality. It changes the way you look; it changes the way you feel. We all know what Crossbones represents in his world, so when they called me and said we gotta do the body scan, I was like ‘Okay!'”
Crossbones (Brock Rumlow) is a supervillain in the Marvel Comics universe. He was created by writer Mark Gruenwald and artist Kieron Dwyer in Captain America #359–360 (1989). He is a henchman of the Red Skull.
The film is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. It stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Brühl, Frank Grillo.
Captain America: Civil War principal photography is scheduled to begin in April 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia. The film is scheduled to be released on May 6, 2016.
