Marvel’s standalone films are reaching such a huge scale all over the world that it’s really no surprise they get so much attention, especially during the production stage.
This is proving to be no different for the upcoming clash of the titans that will be Captain America: Civil War. While we are expecting our favourite Marvel heroes to be fighting each other, they will of course be taking on a few villains, which include imposing assassin Brock Rumlow, a.k.a Crossbones.
We already got our first look at Frank Grillo as Rumlow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but he wasn’t wearing his costume back then. Now we have our first full look at Crossbones in all his glory, and he looks every bit as intimidating as he’s supposed to.
Clearly, in this picture, he’s battle-ready, and in the next, we see him going fist-to-shield with Captain America himself, and we also catch a glimpse of Anthony Mackie as the Falcon, in what seems to be an African marketplace. Could this be a reference or a shout-out to the Black Panther?
With Crossbones being a prominent villain in the Captain America mythos, from these pictures it looks like he’s going to be a big part of Civil War, perhaps even seeking to find his old boss, the Red Skull.
Captain America: Civil War will be released in cinemas on May 6th, 2016.
