Frank Grillo Boldly Jabs Kevin Feige After Joining James Gunn’s DC Universe

Frank Grillo, the renowned actor recognized for his roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), including Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Endgame, has taken a daring step into the realm of the DC Universe (DCU). Grillo is set to portray Rick Flag Sr. in James Gunn’s DCU project, Creature Commandos, a move that has stirred the entertainment landscape.

In a recent interview with Moviefone, Grillo didn’t shy away from expressing his sentiments about Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, and the way his Marvel story concluded. The actor, who seems enthusiastic about his venture into the DCU, stated, “I love James Gunn and Peter Safran and what they’re doing at DC and for the DCU, and these characters are living in all their movies. I’m going to be around for a while, and I wish I could tell you what I have coming up with them, but I can’t. But it’s exciting. I was just with the Russo Brothers, Kevin Feige and Lou D’Esposito and it’s kind of like, ‘I miss those guys, but you blew it’.”
