Crossbones, who was the first antagonist to face Cap in Captain America: Civil War, was a Hydra agent who met his end by committing suicide in a bid to take Captain America with him after failing his mission to get a biological weapon in Lagos… and we already know how that turned out in Lagos, Nigeria. Thanks to Scarlet Witch who saved Captain America and other Lagosians in the market, but failed to contain the blast and ended up killing people in the research lab.
In an interview with CinemaBlend
, a producer on Spider-Man: Homecoming
told the site that fans would see subtle easter egg involving Crossbones in the movie. The nod comes courtesy of Shocker, a villain who teams up with the Vulture to wreak havoc and make life hard for Tony Stark. Talking about the Shocker’s armory, Carroll pointed out that one of his gauntlets was salvaged from Crossbones.
“One of the guys on his team goes by The Shocker, which Toomes make fun of him for. ‘What is this, Pro-Wrestling?’ I think this is another really cool interpretation of a pretty classic costume. He’s got these insulated, yellow arms, like the Shocker in the comics. And that gauntlet, you’ll recognize from the beginning of Civil War,” Carroll said.
“It’s what’s Crossbones is using to kick the shit of Cap in that prologue. They scavenged it from the battle in Lagos, and made a couple of upgrades, so that it’s not a pneumatic punch machine. It also delivers a pretty hefty jolt when it connects, as well.”
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
The cast features Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Logan Marshall-Green, and Marisa Tomei.
