Cameos galore for Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Marvel has worked so hard at establishing a common universe for all of its respective Avengers to inhabit, that it should come as no surprise to hear of them cameoing in each other's movies. Nevertheless, it’s still very cool.

Variety has revealed that there will be several such cameos in Captain America: The Winter Soldier . We already knew Black Widow was set to make an appearance, but now it emerges that both Nick Fury and Maria Hill will also be appearing.

None of those should come as a major surprise, given that S.H.I.E.L.D. is the organisation that ties all the films together, but it’s still exciting to have them confirmed.

In addition to that, Frank Grillo has been officially confirmed to play the villainous Crossbones, a deadly assassin who serves as one of the Red Skull’s henchmen in the comics, and can easily be recognised by his signature skeletal mask.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and co-starring Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will open in the US on 4 April 2014.
