Frank Grillo, who plays Crossbones/Brock Rumlow, recently spoke about a scene he shared with Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America) in “Captain America: Civil War.” In his discussion with Collider, the 50-year-old actor said the scene took days of filming as the new world had to be reinvented.
“Me and Evans were doing this scene for days, where we were supposed to be in a certain part of the world and they recreated that world. There were hundreds of extras, and there we were in the center of it,” he said.
He also added that Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner and Paul Rudd watched him and Evans do his scene and it felt “special.”
Grillo did not divulge the context of the scene. His character Rumlow was first seen in “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” where he fought Captain America in an elevator.
“I like the idea that it’s no holds barred. I was 15 pounds bigger when I did Cap 2, and I'll put another 15 pounds on to do Cap 3. I love the physicality. It changes the way you look; it changes the way you feel,” he said to EW.
“Captain America: Civil War” also stars Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle and Elizabeth Olsen. It will see formation of two groups of Avengers. One of the groups will be headed by Iron Man (Downey) and other by Captain America (Evans).
Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are directing the film and it opens May 6, 2016. Kevin Feige is the producer and it has a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
