There's still a lot we don't know about Captain America: Civil War. We know that Iron Man and The First Avenger will be locked in a heated, politically driven battle, as Crossbones enters the fray to wreak some havok. However, might this famed Captain America baddie not play as integral a role as we thought? Civil War started principal photography at the beginning of the month, and actor Frank Grillo is already finished filming his scenes.
Grillo announced the news on Instagram, writing, "I came I fought I conquered." When preliminary castings were first announced, it was reported that Crossbones plays the primary antagonist in Civil War. We last saw him laying on a stretcher in The Winter Soldier, having been crushed by the rubble from a collapsing building, but now he's bad and ready to take on Cap with a whole new look to him. However, perhaps he only has a handful of integral scenes before the focus goes back to the real battle. After all, this is a Captain America movie first and foremost.
We've been seeing photos and videos of the set leaking left and right, and through them we know that Crossbones has a major fight with Captain America in the streets of the African nation Wakanda, home of the Black Panther. Production was set up in Atlanta and the two were locked in intense hand-to-hand combat. From the official plot for the film, an international incident involving the Avengers prompts the world's governments to ban together to regulate all superhuman activity. Given how the Atlanta set also played host to Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch, Anthony Mackie's Falcon, Paul Rudd's Ant-Man, Tony Stark's Iron Man and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, it seems likely that Crossbones is the one who sparks this "incident" and kicks the whole film into motion. But what role he has beyond this is still unclear.
Check out Grillo's latest Instagram update below.
Captain America: Civil War, much like the latest Avengers, has a lot of moving parts, all of which are competing for the spotlight. In addition to the characters and plots previously detailed, there's also the debut of Black Panther (played by Chadwick Boseman), the inclusion of Hawkeye, Vision, War Machine, The Winter Soldier, Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl), a mystery role from Martin Freeman and the return of William Hurt as General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross. Then there's the new Spider-Man, who's presumed to make his first appearance in Civil War before going on to a solo film.
The Civil War will commence on May 6, 2016.
