    Time for Grillo to start getting on the juice.

    Personally I would like to see them combine some of the Masters of Evil characters with some of the Acts of Vengeance characters.

    So essentially combine this: http://www.marvelarchive.com/images/cards/1_105-f.jpg

    of course minus anyone that currently has rights with other studios.

    with some of this: http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120811130239/marveldatabase/images/4/49/Detail4.jpg

    and add maybe a few other characters like Crossbones to round out the roster and I think the Avengers would be in trouble.

    That would be the Masters of Evil I would like to see.

    That seems more like the Hood's gang to me.

    Chances are the movie Masters will be an assortment of whatever villains they can spare, much like the movie Howling Commandos had 2 out of 7 members who were actually Howling Commandos.

    That's House of M --- an alternate universe. (Notice that Stark is allied with Roxxon in that cover.)

    It doesn't count.

    In 616, Crossbones has never been in the MoE. Lately, he's been recruited by the Thunderbolts, but the T-Bolts haven't been associated with the MoE for decades.

    Okay, thanks for letting me know, because while I love the characters and still try to follow their stories when I can, I really haven't collected comics for a while so my knowledge of characters or what is considered in continuity can sometimes be incorrect or outdated.

    Thought: Maybe Crossbones is taking over Lukin's role in the story (pulling WS's strings)

    I know we're all assuming that's Zemo's role in this, but who knows at this point

    Shame Renner isn't onboard for Cap. Crossbones sounds like a decent match-up for Hawkeye.

    The odds of the Masters of Evil being the villains of Avengers 2 just skyrocketed. There is no way Crossbones is appearing without his master, whoever that is. . . and if either Red Skull or Zemo is appearing, its almost certainly to lead a team of supervillains out for revenge.

    Okay, so the radio host guy Matthew Aaron apparently upset Marvel when he said that Frank Grillo will be in other Cap movies and The Avengers sequel. After tweeting the following, he said on his radio show sadly that he was sorry to Marvel and his ("hopefully still") friend Frank Grillo.

    Mebbe, but Crossbones doesn't strike me as a string-puller. He's muscle, plain and simple.

    Yeah, Crossbones showing up for TA2 didn't make much sense. Even from the MoE angle....everybody seems to be envisioning the MoE the same way they're envisioning the Avengers, as just an "all-star" team that'll recruit anybody and everybody with super powers. Truth of the matter is that the MoE has been very selective over the decades, and its roster contains a whole ****load of minor/forgotten villains that even die-hard comic book geeks wouldn't recognize.

    Maybe....depends on how many films they've got Grillo signed for. Marvel Studios has a tendency to give multi-film contracts to everyone except Iron Man villains (who have a tendency to get killed in their debut; sorry, Mandarin).

    Right!

    It had a good cast. Jamie King, Iceman, Rigg and Gus from SAW II, Jessica from True Blood, and the ever graceful Rebecca De Mornay (all I could do was chant "You still got it!)

    I still kind of think he'll be in The Avengers. I think that's part of the reason Marvel were so upset with him. And that Matthew is pretty much trying to retract what he said to make Marvel happy. Of course, Marvel could just be upset about Grillo confirming he'll be in multiple movies.

    Nah.

    Crossbones as a big bad instead of an enforcer? Can't see it.

    Well, if the Red Skull truly isn't coming back then they might rework Crossbones as something of a fanatical successor. That, of course, would likely draw comparison's to Nolan's version of Bane taking over for Ra's (and it wouldn't help that the two characters look very similar). But that could be the direction they're headed.

    Also, check out the trailer to Lay the Favorite. Grillo is in it briefly, and he's already looks JACKED.

    I think its much more likely that Crossbones will just switch masters, to whatever the Big Bad of Cap 2 turns out to be. Hopefully Zemo.

    I think Crossbones is a good personal villain for Cap so I wouldn't mind seeing him appear in at least another film. Hopefully they don't kill him off at the end of TWS so he can come back later causing trouble for Cap somehow.
