Crossbones Will Not Return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe

by  in Movie News Comment

Despite at one time teasing that his character may yet have unfinished work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, actor Frank Grillo is now saying his time as Crossbones is over.

In an interview with Collider, Grillo’s answer as to whether he’d return for another chapter in the “Purge” franchise included his current stance on if he’ll ever swing another punch at Captain America.

“If DeMonaco was still involved and they came up with a great idea, then I think I would do [another Purge movie]. Otherwise, I think I’m done. Same thing with Captain America,” Grillos stated. “There’s nowhere for it to go, unless you’re Captain America or Iron Man. They were talking about it, but I was like, ‘You know what? I’d just rather not do it.’ I’m so appreciative and grateful to have been a part of something that big. I’m appreciative of The Purge. It’s become a part of the lexicon and the zeitgeist knows what it is, so that’s been fun. But, it’s time to move on. Don’t stay at the party too long, or you get knocked through the ropes.”

That’s a bit of a shift from Grillo’s previous comments on his character’s Marvel future. In July 2017, while promoting “Captain America: Civil War,” the actor teased that despite what it looked like on screen, his character’s death was far from definitive.

“You think he dies, don’t you?” Grillo said with a smile during an appearance on “Good Morning America.” “Did you see the body? What did you see?” Grillo pointed out that his character had a building dropped on him in “Captain America: Winter Soldier” and lived to fight again — albeit heavily scarred — in this year’s “Civil War.” “That happened last time,” he said. “I’m not saying anything except that … you didn’t see a body.”
