Frank Grillo's Crossbones Unmasked In New 'Captain America: Civil War' Photos

It's now week two for Marvel Studios shooting Captain America: Civil War and in the days since principal photography began, we've already seen most of the main cast on set and in costume thanks to unofficial photos making the rounds online. Of the costumed heroes and villains depicted in these images though, it was Frank Grillo's Brock Rumlow, returning from his violent introduction in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, who made for the most notable appearance on set.

As Grillo put it himself, The Winter Soldier was just an origin story of sorts for his character, similar to how it was for Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson a.k.a. Falcon. In Civil War, Grillo's Rumlow suits up in heavy gear to become the Marvel Comics antagonist known as Crossbones.

The first photos of the Crossbones costume featured Grillo sporting heavy armor, with the white "X" (cross) on his chest, and a mercenary field mask. Most notably though, he also has these strange gauntlets, serving at first glance as some sort of powered punch mechanism on each arm. We figured it was there for him to go hand-to-hand against the super-strong Captain America (Chris Evans) and as we learned from new set photos yesterday, that's exactly the case.
