(Note - potential SPOILERS for Captain America: Civil War are to be found below - proceed with all the usual caution...or joyfully reckless abandon. Your call...)

There's been a steady stream of images coming from the set of Captain America: Civil War of late, with our first looks at Bucky, Black Widow, Cap and Falcon - with the images telling us a whole lot about what to expect from the movie's central funeral scene - but not a whole lot more.

Recently, though, we got our first glimpse of Cap's increasingly formidable foe, Crossbones - better known to fans of Captain America: The Winter Soldier as 'that guy Brock Rumlow who Cap beat the snot out of':

That sneaky hint of Crossbones, though, wasn't enough.

Sure, it teased a bad-ass new costume for the villain - but we needed more...

We needed...

Our First Look at What's Beneath the Mask

And, oh look, the good folks over at Just Jared just so happened to oblige.

And by oblige, I obviously actually mean 'released a giant pile of Frank Grillo-starring awesomeness, which very much teases exactly what Rumlow'll look like beneath the mask:

Which, intriguingly, seems to be seriously, seriously scarred - albeit, in these shots, only on the part of his face that shows through the mask. Expect at least one full reveal in the final movie, though...

Which...makes a whole lot of sense, when you think about it. After all, when we last saw ol' Brock, he had just had several tons of rubble dropped on him:

Which should make for an interesting comparison with his comic-book counterpart, whose drive to kill Cap tends to take a more Red Skull-oriented line than the personal vengeance the cinematic Crossbones looks likely to be seeking.

Also, sandwiches.
Also, sandwiches.

My one big question, still, though?

Will we get to see him wielding a ridiculously large gun?

And, if not, is there still time to change that decision?

What do you think, though?
