Marvel‘s been great at keeping details of what will go down in the highly anticipated fourth Avengers film firmly under lock and key. Thankfully, certain cast members are willing to risk a dusting by the massive studio to shed a bit of light.
Just a bit of light, mind you. Still, better than nothing. Frank ‘should be in waaaaay more’ Grillo has revealed/confirmed that he will be in Marvel’s still-untitled Avengers 4, which will be hitting cinemas in 2019. He’ll be reprising his role as Brock Rumlow, aka Crossbones, who we saw meeting his end early on in Captain American: Civil War.
“[Crossbones] makes an appearance in the next Avengers movie,” Grillo said on the UFC Unfiltered podcast, thus confirming that the film will indeed be including different timelines – in one way or another. “But it’s a flashback.”
As for why he decided to just drop that tidbit: “… I’m allowed to say whatever I want because I’m never doing another Marvel movie,” Grillo joked, suggesting he may be getting to old for this sh*t. “I’m 117 years old.”
So, what does this mean exactly? Time will tell… so to speak. These photos leaked from the Avengers 4 set showed Chris Evans as Cap, although clean shaven and in an outfit that’s highly reminiscent of his 2012 Avengers look. And when the set pictured there is looking a little like that film’s New York battle location… well, speculate away. Flashbacks? Dream sequences? Time travel?
Avengers: Infinity War‘s worldwide box office draw of $US2.04 billion currently makes it the fourth-highest grossing film of all time (unadjusted figures). You can only imagine what next year’s culminating epic will do. We don’t have too long; Avengers 4 will open in Australian cinemas on April 25 and hits US cinemas on May 2, 2019.
