Frank Grillo talks ‘Captain America Civil War’ Crossbones scars, physical role

While Frank Grillo was giving interviews for the Television Critics Association promoting his DirecTV original series Kingdom, Grillo detailed his role as Crossbones in Captain America: Civil War.

“The scars are not healed,” Grillo said about his set photo when asked by Slash Film . “The scars are terribly bad but the helmet comes off and you get to see that.”

Grillo posted a set photo from Civil War on his Instagram account with the text: “I’m out.Atlanta. I came I fought I conquered.” Text on the photo also read “I am done with this marriage,” in all caps.

This and other set photos confirmed his return in the Winter Soldier sequel as Grillo played Brock Rumlow, seen at the end (spoiler alert) badly burned but still alive, prime for transformation into the villain Crossbones.

In Kingdom, he plays the owner of a MMA gym and trainer to a fighter. The show is beginning season two.


Captain America Civil War“It’s a lot of physical stuff, without giving too much away, but there is a little bit of everything,” Grillo added during the talk.

“It’s a big movie. There’s a lot of characters in the film so it’ll be interesting to see what it looks like all cut together. There’s so many people in the movie.”

Civil War is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.

The film returns Chris Evans as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.

Captain America: Civil War will open in theaters on May 6, 2016.
