Comic book characters have some trouble staying dead. And the same can be said for the characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although they might not be brought back to life like their comic book counterparts.
Instead, we get to see previously dead characters rise from the grave thanks to the use of flashbacks. And it looks like we may see the use of it once more in Avengers 4. But it won’t be a hero. Instead, Frank Grillo‘s Crossbones aka Brock Rumlo will be making a comeback. More on the report below.
It was only a week ago when Joe Carnahan and Frank Grillo announced that they would be working on the US version of The Raid.
The two called their film a reimagining of the Indonesian action hit that spawned a sequel. While details have been light, new details about this reimagining are emerging. Find out more about the film in the story below.
The Grey director Joe Carnahan and star Frank Grillo are set to re-team for a new action project The Raid, a remake of the 2011 action hit The Raid: Redemption.
The pair made the announcement in a video shared on Instagram, as well as a post on Twitter in which Carnahan also confirmed that Gareth Evans, the director of the original, has given his blessing and will be a producer on the remake.

The Purge: Election Year is the third installment in four years for the Purge franchise and in my opinion is the best so far. Where the first one was a home invasion movie, and the second was a stilted revenge movie, the third entry is all political thriller dripping with socio-economic commentary. Again written and directed by James DeMonaco, The Purge: Election Year focuses on Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell) who promises, if elected, to end the yearly night of guiltless violence and murder. This obviously makes her a target for the corrupt “new” founding fathers who want to preserve their political and economic dominance.
Returning for part three is Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo), the anti-hero/hero of The Purge: Anarchy. He was a vengeance-seeking Purge participant when part two began, but now he’s back to his old job, working security detail for the Senator. Of course right when Purge night begins, Roan’s house is attacked and she and Leo are forced to venture out into the abyss where Purge activities are commencing as usual. The Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack comes loaded with special features including 8 minutes of deleted scenes, including an extended Purge night montage.
