Captain America: Civil War To Feature Crossbones As Villain?
Marvel has already indicated that “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” Frank Grillo is prepared to return in future Marvel films and will reprise his role of Brock Rumlow, who becomes the villain Crossbones. Grillo himself is keeping quiet though as he says he knows “less then (sic) nothing” about his part in the future Marvel’s cinematic universe.
However, Variety reporter Justin Kroll recently tweeted that the “Kingdom” and “Warrior” actor has a more important role to play in the third “Captain America” film than you might expect. The upcoming film is shaping to be epic as it is suggested it will put from the classic Civil War storyline. In fact, Crossbones may be the film’s primary antagonist:
Beat by Marvel in that one, two things he will play villain but not main one, Crossbones still main

Kroll wrote that in response to a tweet about the recent casting of Daniel Bruhl in a villain role that is rumored to be more of a setup for “Doctor Strange.” Whilst many fans and reporters are speculating as to what part he might play from Baron Mordo to Baron Zemo, it seems Bruhl is still only a secondary baddie to Civil War’s main villain.
Brühl is known for his roles in Rush and Inglorious Basterds. There are no official details on who he will play, the only information released was this statement by Marvel’s Kevin Feige: “With Daniel’s ability to deliver intense, nuanced performances, we knew we had found yet another great actor to share the screen with some of our biggest heroes.”
The actor, a long time German star, only recently came into the U.S. public eye after his role in Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds, then going on to earn Golden Globe, SAG, and BAFTA nominations for his role in Rush, playing Forumla 1 driver Niki Lauda.
Bruhl joins Chris Evans as Captain America and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man as the two characters go head to head in the movie said to drastically change the Marvel cinematic universe.
The film sees these two friends become enemies over a government issued “registration act”, which forces all superheroes to register their identities; Iron Man supports it, while Captain America opposes it. The film will also see the debut of Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman. Additionally, Bruhl is apparently not to be the main villain in the film, but could potentially be the top menace in Doctor Strange.
Also in today’s news, Badass Digest says that despite the increase of Robert Downey Jr.’s role in “Captain America: Civil War,” Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier is still a central character in the action. The film will have Joe and Anthony Russo returning to direct after their first venture with Captain America: The Winter Soldier was so successful. The film is set to be released May 6, 2016.
How do you feel about the casting decisions? How will Crossbones factor into the Civil War storyline? What character do you think Bruhl will be playing?
