The one question that fans of Captain America: Civil War have been asking is — Will Captain die in the movie? Actor Frank Grillo, who plays Marvel villain Brock Rumlow aka Crossbones, dished if his character would kill Steve Rogers in the upcoming movie.

Grillo told Comic Book: "I know Crossbones in the comics kind of offs Cap at some point and we're probably not gonna see that happen. I'm not gonna kill him yet."

Grillo also revealed that he researched his character and even spoke to Ed Brubaker, the creator of his character. The actor shared: "Before I got the job, I started doing some research and I was look, 'Oh, this guy's a bad-ass!' I don't know if I'm gonna live but I want to be that guy.

"I spoke to Brubaker who created Crossbones. He's a great dude and I got some of the back issues and stuff and read the origins of Crossbones and where he came from. The thing with Marvel is they don't always follow to the tee what the character did in the comic books. They use him in different ways. You never know what's gonna happen."

The 50-year-old actor also talked about Crossbones's main objective in Civil War. "[Captain America 2] Winter Soldier let off and I was in bad shape. I was just about to kill the Falcon — which is not hard. I think revenge is a big part.... Whatever Rumlow was feeling as far as being torn between which side he should be on, which I think he was, is gone now. I think he's out for one thing and one thing only and that's to revenge what's happened to him."

According to Marvel, Captain America: Civil War finds Rogers leading the newly-formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to instal a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team.

The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps — one led by Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to release on 6 May 2016.
