With confirmation earlier this week that Frank Grillo has signed on as Crossbones for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Variety has news on some other, more familiar, cast members.
It has been confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Cobie Smulders’ Agent Maria Hill will all be making an appearance. Chris Evans returns as Captain America, with Sebastian Stan returning as Cap’s long presumed dead friend, Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Solider. As well as Grillo being a newcomer to the Marvel Universe, Anthony Mackie is joining the ranks as The Falcon. Also, talk still persists of Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye making an appearance at some point.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is slated for a 4th April, 2014 release.
