When he was first spotted in his full Crossbones outfit on the set of Captain America: Civil War, the Twitter-verse lost their minds with the new design. Some people liked it, some people loved it and there was those (of course) who weren’t keen.

“It’s funny because people really responded to it – it went viral, trended [like crazy], so I’ve been getting phone calls.” Grillo told radio station 93.3 WMMR. “Crossbones is a violent, violent villain in this series, and I finally feel I’ve been understood now. I feel complete; [people] get me.”
The actor also added that he’s been having a blast on the set of Captain America: Civil War, also tweeting that he’s not done just yet. “[These movies] film for months and months and there’s a lot of characters, so It’s great fun.” he said. “And everybody down here gets along real well. Me, Evans, Anthony Mackie, and Jeremy Renner were hanging out last night, having some food. Just a bunch of cool guys getting a chance to be eight-year-olds for a little while.”

Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
