to promote his action adventure film, Big Game
, Jackson said that he was surprised that he wasn’t a part of the third Cap film.
“I was surprised I wasn’t in ‘Civil War,’” says the actor, “because the Russo Brothers told me I was. I don’t know what’s going on.”
He also talked about The Incredibles 2 and was hoping for the return of his superhero character, Frozone.
“I was really glad to see that they’re actually going to do it,” he says. “So hopefully Frozone is still alive and kicking, and looking for his super suit, so we can get this back on.”
