The upcoming explosion of the Multiverse in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to open the doors to all sorts of ideas and concepts that until now have only been seen on the comic book page. As anyone who reads comics knows, no one is ever truly dead.
Avengers: Endgame, through the use of time travel, saw the return of Brock Rumlow; who everyone knows died in Captain America: Civil War in his first appearance as Crossbones. But now we might get to see Crossbones again in the future.
As discussed on this week’s MCU CosmicCast, Marvel is looking to bring back Crossbones in some way and are in discussions about it now.
I do not know where or how he’ll return. It could be something like seeing an alternate universe Crossbones in the Madness of the Multiverse that Doctor Strange will be dealing with next year, or it could be something bigger than that. Perhaps through the Multiverse we could see Crossbones return to the MCU permanently and be a villain for Sam Wilson’s Cap to deal with, or even a member of the Thunderbolts…
However it happens, Crossbones is a character that deserved a longer life in the MCU. So lets hope things work out and Marvel is able to bring him back!
