With Grillo now confirming himself as Crossbones for Captain America: Civil War, does this mean we’ll be heading towards the Death of Captain America?
Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies..
Captain America: Civil War is set for release on April 29th 2016 in the UK and May 6th in the States, with a cast sees Marvel Cinematic Universe veterans Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier) and Frank Grillo (Brock Rumlow/Crossbones) alongside Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up) as T’Challa/Black Panther and Daniel Bruhl (Rush) as a new villain, rumoured to be Baron Zemo.
