Frank Grillo is back as Crossbones! In a recent interview with Collider, the actor revealed that he is reprising his role as Crossbones in the upcoming animated show What If…?
Here is the confirmation:
“Yeah, no, I’m in it. I’ve been doing it.”
What If…? is an upcoming animated show on Disney+. The show explores alternate storylines in the MCU. Such as if Peggy Carter got the super-soldier serum and not Steve Rogers. If T’Challa was Starlord. And more! Grillo went on to explain that he was willing to come back to Marvel regardless in what capacity:
“If the President calls and says, ‘I want you to come to the White House,’ you don’t ask why. You just kind of get on a plane and go to the White House. CAA called, my agents called and said, ‘They’re doing this thing, What If…?, and they have four or five episodes planned out, you can do it all in one [day].’ I’m like, ‘Whatever, I don’t care what the money [is], it doesn’t matter, yes I’m going to do it. Absolutely. All day, every day.'”
Grillo has recorded:
“Four or five episodes… in one day or two days, and now I think I have to go in February to record a few more… I recorded that probably almost a year ago, and I’m sure with COVID and everything, everything was put on hold, but now it’s come back around. I literally don’t know anything more about it. I don’t even remember what I was doing, I don’t even remember what I said in the shows, but I think it’s gonna be cool. My little guy, my son Rio — he’s not so little, he’s 13 — he’s a crazy Marvel fan, he can’t wait to see it. He can’t wait.”
“You’re just kind of interpreting it yourself and reading off the page and trying to stay into the character of Crossbones. They set up this scenario and we just kind of play around until we get it. And then they show a little bit sometimes, but you know Marvel, they don’t wanna show you too much. Especially me, I’m a big mouth, I’ve been scolded many times.”
Are you excited to see Grillo back in the MCU?
A girl with too many fandoms to count.
