While most wouldn't think of Marvel's Phase Two sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier as an origin story, that's exactly how Frank Grillo describes it. While doing press for his action-thriller Homefront, the actor reveals that there will be several characters introduced in this sequel who will be around for future movies.
"It's an origin film. You meet people who are going to be around for a while, so they introduce the characters. It's almost like it's a series. It's fun. I can't say very much about it because Marvel's very strict about what you're allowed to say. The movie, we've seen bits of it, and it is spectacular."
When asked if they have plans to use his character, Brock Rumlow, a.k.a. Crossbones, in more Marvel movies, the actor had this to say.
"They do actually. We'll see what happens. We'll see if the fans respond to Brock and how it goes."
However, he wouldn't say if we get to see Brock's transformation into Crossbones in the movie.
"I can't say any of that because they will fire me."
The actor also talked about the experience of working on a Marvel movie, and being on set with actors such as Robert Redford
"For any actor, it's huge and you really get an understanding of that when you see guys like [Robert Redford show up to do a role. What's happening now is I think since all the Marvel movies had such a wide range of viewers globally that you'd be crazy not to want to be involved on some level with the Marvel people. They do it like nobody else. For me it's a great opportunity because it's an international film. It just raises your exposure that much more."
