It isn't terribly surprising that Frank Grillo has already wrapped on Captain America: Civil War, given the massive nature of the ensemble cast. Almost all of the main cast from Avengers: Age of Ultron will be back, including Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Anthony Mackie (The Falcon), Paul Bettany (Vision), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Don Cheadle (War Machine) and Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), along with Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Daniel Brühl (Baron Zemo) and Martin Freeman in an unspecified role. It is also widely believed that the new Spider-Man will make an appearance, but that has yet to be confirmed.
As it turns out, there isn't much downtime for the actor, as he revealed on Twitter yesterday that he is about to start production on the second season of his DirecTV series Kingdom. It isn't known how long the Captain America: Civil War shoot will last for, but we'll keep you posted as soon as more updates are available. In the meantime, take a look at Frank Grillo's tweets and Instagram post below.

Akiva Goldsman is directing from a screenplay by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, which landed on the Blood List in 2012 as one of the top unproduced horror screenplays. Jason Blum and Matthew Kaplan will produce alongside Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Adrienne Biddle, with Nate Matteson, Eric Robinson and Bryan Bertino serving as executive producers. No production schedule was given at this time.
Frank Grillo most recently starred in The Purge: Anarchy and as Brock Rumlow, a.k.a. Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a role he will reprise in next year's Captain America: Civil War.

This year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier gave us an introduction to popular Marvel character Brock Rumlow, played by Frank Grillo, although we did not get to see him transform into the villainous Crossbones.

Frank Grillo has had a banner year in genre film, with the sequel The Purge: Anarchy a bonafide hit and Captain America: The Winter Soldier becoming the second biggest movie of the year, resting only behind Marvel's other 2014 release Guardians of the Galaxy. He also has a new TV series called Kingdom about the MMA subculture, and while promoting this drama series, he revealed to Collider his upcoming Marvel plans.
The key here is 'next few Marvel movies'. While it hasn't been confirmed, it's most likely that Crossbones will next appear in Captain America: Civil War, which opens May 16. Crossbones plays a key role in the Civil War storyline, being the one to assassinate Steve Rogers after his Anti-Registration heroes surrendered to Iron Man and his Pro-Registration heroes. It is not yet known how closely the movie will follow the comic books, but because most of the heroes' identities are already known, there will definitely be some changes.Read More

Williams and writer-director James DeMonaco for The Purge: Anarchy, which hits theaters July 18.
The Purge is a night where all crime is legal and all hospitals, fire stations, poison control centers and police stations in the United States are closed down for 12 hours. In 2023, a year after The Purge of 2022, a couple named Shane and Liz, are driving to one of their sister's house in Los Angeles to wait out the Purge when their car runs out of gas just as the Purge commences, and they flee from masked attackers on motorcycles and minibikes. Meanwhile, Leo Barnes goes out into the streets to get revenge on the man who killed his son, and a mother and daughter, Eva and Cali, run into the night after an unknown group of well-equipped assailants break into their tenement. The five people meet up as they attempt to survive the night.Read More
