Variety has just reported that there will be a bunch of Marvel character cameos in the upcoming sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger, titled Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It’s already been revealed months ago that Black Widow will be making an appearance, but it is now revealed that both Maria Hill and Nick Fury will be making appearances as well.
Not that the news is surprising, since both Hill and Fury are prominent members of the organization that ties the films together. In addition to the news about the new cameos, it was also confirmed by variety that Frank Grillo will be playing the villain Crossbones, who is a deadly assassin serving as one of the Red Skull’s henchmen in the comics, and is recognizable due to his signature skeletal mask.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and co-starring Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will open in the US on 4 April 2014.
