Frank Grillo Now Says Crossbones Appearing in Avengers 4 is ‘Fake News’

Last week, Frank Grillo made an appearance on the UFC Unfiltered podcast where he said about Crossbones, “He makes an appearance in the next Avengers movie, but it’s a flashback.”

Now he’s gone on his Instagram saying that what he said on the UFC podcast is “fake news” and he was just having fun with the person who asked him about Crossbones:

Based on the set reports of people who saw Crossbones filming scenes for Avengers 4, he probably is in the movie and it’s likely he got in trouble with Marvel for saying that on the podcast last week, resulting in this walk-back on the comments today.
