Some things don’t change, not even in the multiverse, as Crossbones is about to discover. The upcoming third episode of Marvel’s What If…? will feature the return of the villain. While the character portrayed by Frank Grillo — who will also voice the character in the animated show — has been mentioned in the WandaVision episode 5, it has been some time since fans last saw him directly. His last on-screen appearance was in Captain America: Civil War, where he met his apparent end. Now, Brock Rumlow will collide with none other than the Black Widow, as shown by a recently released clip from What If…? episode 3 (via USAToday).
It appears that the next installment will take place before the first Avengers movie. It will see Nick Fury and SHIELD investigating a series of murders that involves the soon-to-be members of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Apparently, Black Widow is the main suspect and she’s being taken into custody. But it’s easier said than done. You can watch the clip in the player below.
After Agent Carter taking on Captain America’s shield to become Captain Carter and Prince T’Challa becoming Star-Lord, it’s time for another pivotal character to get her What If…? scenario. It will be interesting to see how and if the next episode will link in some way to the Black Widow standalone movie and its repercussions.
Disney+ will release the third episode of What If…? on Wednesday, Aug. 25.
