An already-dead MCU villain is set to reappear in Avengers 4

The actor himself made the announcement. No, not Loki. Or Red Skull

We’re another bit closer to this movie becoming a reality, and we still don’t even have a title.

Avengers 4 aka Infinity War 2 aka Oh My God Marvel Just Tell Us The Name Already! is due out in April 2019, and there hasn’t been a single official image, poster, teaser, trailer… or title.

Every week there seems to be another snippet of potential info (although everything must be taken with a punch of infinity salt), and this week, that snippet comes from Frank Grillo, who played Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War.

Grillo was chatting to The Hollywood Reporter when he dropped the following tidbit:

“He makes an appearance in the next Avengers movie. But it’s a flashback… I’m allowed to say whatever I want because I’m never doing another Marvel movie.”

We’d already theorised how Ant-Man and The Wasp‘s post-credits scene could predict how Avengers 4 will play out – but Grillo doesn’t exactly back those up with his story.

Flashback and time travel are two very different things, after all.

That wasn’t the only info that Grillo has dropped recently, as he spoke on Larry King Now and said that the future of Captain America is potentially very different to what has come before on the big screen:

“There have been rumors that Captain America could be African American. It could be a woman. You know? So they’re looking.”
