Earlier this month, Frank Grillo doubted his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe but hinted at a possible future at DC. That has since been confirmed thanks to The Wrap. According to the outlet, Grillo has been cast as Rick Flag Sr. in Creature Commandos. The animated series will help to kick off the newly launched DC Studios and will be a part of Chapter One: Gods and Monsters.
James Gunn, who now runs DC Studios alongside Peter Safran, wrote all seven episodes of Creature Commandos. It is based on the comic series of the same name and will include Rick Flag Sr., Nina Mazursky, Dr. Phosphorus, Frankenstein’s Monster, G.I. Robot, The Bride and Weasel. Sean Gunn who played Weasel in The Suicide Squad will reprise the role for the animated series. Per Gunn, the series is being cast with the intention of having the actors portray the roles in live-action projects, too.
Grillo, of course, played the role of Brock Rumlow, aka Crossbones, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Outside of the MCU, the actor has starred in projects such as Kingdom, The Purge: Anarchy, Billions, and Beyond Skyline.
Creature Commandos is said to be in production now for a release sometime in 2024.
