Frank Grillo He is one of those actors that part of the public may not recognize by name, but things will surely change as soon as they see an image of him. One of his most remembered roles is that of Brock Rumlow that he played for Marvel, but he was not at all happy with the experience, especially with the treatment he was given in ‘Captain America: Civil War’, which was exactly where he became Crossbones.
“There was more meat on the bone”
The actor has shared his anger in an interview with ComicBook in which he points out that “they never told the story of Crossbones. The mythology of the MCU and the number of characters that Marvel has is very deep. Crossbones was there for a minute, but he was supposed to be longer. So they changed focus.“.
Therefore, Cricket he was left wanting to explore the character more and he believes that interest in him, which we last saw in a cameo in ‘Avengers: Endgame’, has been growing over the years. That led him to make a rather drastic decision:
I think Crossbones serves a purpose, but I think what’s interesting is if you look at how many people around the world have responded to Crossbones, and again, it’s on the screen for a fucking short time, I think there’s more to it. I think there was more meat on the bone. I was disappointed, that’s why I went to DC…
And this is the way in which Grillo has confirmed the rumors about his possible participation in ‘Creature Commandos’, one of the projects that are part of James Gunn’s plan to relaunch DC. What remains unclear is whether he will be to play Rick Flagg, which is the character for which it sounded strong, but everything suggests that it will be.
