The success of its predecessor films has created a thrill among fans of the Avenger series. Consequently, the franchise occasionally drops updates about the development of the next installment “Avenger 3”. When a movie has so many superheroes in the lead, the antagonist cannot be just any ordinary man. A recent buzz reveals that the viewers may see Crossbones as the main villain in “Avengers 3.”
We would like to remind readers (especially those who are not very familiar with comic world characters) that we saw the superhero team killing Crossbones at the opening shot of “Captain America: Civil War.”
His end and the massive property damage from his suicide sparked the fire in the film’s conflict. With the shot, the audience assumed that he is just another villain put to an end before any further development. Truth be told, the incident is a cliffhanger.
Actor Frank Grillo, who plays Crossbones, says that fans may not have seen the last of Crossbones.
He hinted with a smile:
“You think he dies, don’t you? Did you see the body? What did you see? That happened last time. I’m not saying anything except that … you didn’t see a body.”
These indeed are very confident words by the actor via Comicbook . Even though we saw Crossbones exploding in midair, his end was not certain. Up until now, everything (on the audience’s part) is just guess work. However, just like superheroes, these are supervillains. Therefore, anything is possible for them. In the superhero horizon, death is just the ‘calm before the storm’.
This is not the first time that Crossbones’ fate is challenged. We witnessed something similar in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well. As a huge building dropped on him, we thought he would bite the dust. However, he came back in “Captain America: Civil War.” Of course scars of the previous damage were clearly visible.
Going by the trend, do you think that Crossbones can make a return in “Avengers 3”?
