Crossbones will continue taking a dirt nap for the Marvel Cinematic Universe

01.06.2017

Back when he was promoting his work for CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, actor Frank Grillo teased that his Crossbones character may have survived his altercation with Wanda Maximoff, and may one day come back to cause more trouble for Steve Rogers and his friends. Welp, it appears that after a recent interview with Collider, Grillo has confessed that Crossbones will no longer play a part in the many tangled narratives of the MCU. Aww, dry your tears, friend. Perhaps it would be better if you heard the news from Grillo himself:

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.

If you ask me, Crossbones returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after being magically crumpled up like a discarded sheet of greasy tin foil would be a real stretch. I’m well aware that we’re dealing with a comic book-related universe in these films, but seriously, that dude was super dead. Additionally, I know that the writers could easily work around the ordeal, but I feel as if bringing him back would cheapen the traumatic effect his death had on The Scarlet Witch. For me, there has to be some manner of consequence to the character deaths we experience in these films. Otherwise, death in comic book movies will be reduced to the tiresome revolving door that you find in most of the comic book continuity of today.

What do you all think? Would you have liked to see Crossbones come back to life as the result of some bizarre comic book loophole, or will his being gone for good not cause you lose any sleep at night? Let us know in the comments section below!

Sucks as Crossbones is one of my favorite Cap villains. Its Red Skull, Taskmaster and Crossbones for me. Cap is constantly fighting him. And I'm one for tradition, but I admit I LOVED his updated costume here. There was so much potential for him, and he unlike so many other Marvel villains, had a backstory. He was pretty prevalent in Winter Solider, which would have given him depth going forward. So him always fighting cap through the future movies, or showing up to be part of Team Evil or

Not to mention if they pass the mantle to Sam to become cap, well Crossbones could still be there as it was Falcon he was fighting in the building that collapsed on him so there is bad blood there. Wasted opportunity with a villain that had actual character development.

As much as I loved Civil War, killing him off within the first act seemed a little perplexing considering how memorable he was in Winter Soldier and how there was still potential for him to become one of Marvel's more dominant villains.

Yeah he "decided" to not do it any more. That's what it was.

Civil War had issues

Killing Crossbones for one was huge. They could easily had Wanda inadvertently kill civilians and accomplished the same thing. Instead kill a colorful interesting character and gives a bland villain.

It really should have been Avengers 3 - Civil War and Captain America should have gotten his own sequel ala Winter Soldier (Marvel's best IMO).

Killing off Crossbones early in the film was a wasted opportunity. They could've just apprehended him and he could have been in a future project. Or he could have been in league with Zemo.

I think like most people I want better villains in the MCU. Crossbone could have been used in alot better way if he hadn't died, I liked Frank's take on it. He's one of the better villians in the MCU, he was better then Zemo to me. Also for the tidbit I believe Fox owns Kang due to Fantastic Four.

I agree, Brock Rumlow was one of the better villain that the MCU has seen (and Zemo was the biggest disappointment yet, IMO). I really liked what they did with him in Winter Soldier and just wish they had used him more in Civil War (and yeah, I wish they'd had the iconic sniper scene and somebody had died, but I guess that would have risked feeling repetitive since it was coming out right on the heels of Age of Ultron).

Also, I'm pretty confident Marvel can use Kang, he's much more of an

Also, I'm pretty confident Marvel can use Kang, he's much more of an Avengers villain than an FF one and while Rama-Tut appeared in FF, Kang proper made his first appearance in Avengers. Heck, Black Panther first appeared in FF, so if Marvel can use him then they should be in the clear to use Kang. Or it might be a Quicksilver thing where they honestly both could use him if they wanted to.
