It seems likely that Crossbones might be featured in Captain America 2, “The Winter Soldier,” as a pair of recent tweets seem to reveal as much.
This past Saturday saw a rumor hit the net that Frank Grillo (The Grey, Warrior) screen-tested for Crossbones, with a recent tweet by Grillo stating that he had a good trip with Marvel and that he hopes it all works out.
See Ya LA. It was a a good trip. Marvel was a lot of fun. Be cool if it works out. #CaptainAmerica
Crossbones aka Brock Rumlow, was created by Mark Gruenwald, and has worked with the Red Skull and trained under Taskmaster becoming a deadly fighting machine, even though he has no super powers. He was actually the one to assassinate Captain America following Civil War in Captain America #25 as well.
The Russo Bros. are directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier which has an April 4th, 2014 release date and stars Chris Evans.
