Captain America: The Winter Soldier

In this film, Rumlow actually served as the hidden tertiary antagonist.

Rumlow alongside Captain America and Black Widow were sent to retrieve the Lemurian Star, a ship of SHIELD, that was captured by mercenaries led by Georges Batroc. The mission was a success because they recovered the Lemurian and captured Batroc.

Later, Rumlow led the Strike team whose mission was to capture Rogers because Pierce declared Rogers an enemy of SHIELD. Rogers manages to escapes on numerous ocassions from Rumlow and his team but thanks to the intervention of the Winter Soldier, he finally manages to capture Steve Rogers, together with the Agent Romanoff and the former Armed Forces paratrooper, Sam Wilson. When Jack Rollins wanted to shoot Rogers, Rumlow stopped him saying "Not here" since the place was full of the news helicopters watching. He took the fugitives to a place where they could execute them but they escaped with the help of Maria Hill disguised as Strike member.

After Rogers said that HYDRA was still alive, Rumlow went the control center to verify the launch of Helicarriers when a launch technician refused to put the Helicarriers into orbit and said "Captain's orders", he was furious and threatened to kill him. Sharon Carter defended the Launch Technician by putting a gun to Rumlow's head. While a gunfight between HYDRA agents and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents is carried out, Rumlow managed to put the Helicarriers in orbit and escape.

When Rumlow was headed to the room where Pierce was, he is interrupted by Falcon. During the fight Rumlow acclaims that Wilson was no match for him. He manages to survive after a Helicarrier crashed into a building in which he was. Rumlow is last seen at the hospital for recovery as his body and face are smashed.

Captain America: Civil War

In this film, Rumlow has returned as the minor villain, under the alias of Crossbones, although this alias was never mentioned, adopted or used by Rumlow and or any other characters.

After the events of the previous film, Rumlow seeked to draw out the Avengers and eventually to cause a devastating attack. Crossbones and some mercenaries participated in the theft of a biological agent at an Institute for Infectious Diseases (IFD) laboratory in Lagos, Nigeria. Crossbones' men drove a truck through the entrance before opening fire on the guards, filling the building with poisonous gas. Crossbones made his way through the building until he found a chemical weapon and stole it. However, they were soon confronted by the Avengers who interfered and fended off Crossbones' mercenaries before seeking him out.

As Crossbones left the building with the bilogical agent with him, he saw Black Widow attacking his men and this thing led him to charge her in a fight. Romanoff fought against the mercenaries before attempting to elecrotouce him with a Taser disk on his exposed neck. However, Crossbones informs her that he cannot feel pain anymore since his nerve system had been destroyed in the Triskelion crush incident, before locking her inside a tank and dropping a grenade inside the tank, eventually, this thing killed his own men, while the Widow barely managed to escape by using one of his mercenaries as a human shield.

Rumlow and his last remaining mercenaries got into their armored vehicle to escape from their attackers just as Falcon arrived and hunted them down. Crossbones gave the chemical weapon to one of his men before they crashed and departed, with each of the soldiers running in an opposite direction hoping to mislead the Avengers. Before long, all the men had been killed and the weapon had been secured and taken away by Redwing.

Rumlow then attacked and battled with Captain America, furiously attempting to beat him to the death for nearly causing to his own death in the previous film, while using his new battlesuit's upgrades to his own good. But, although that his new suit gave him such a massive strength that eventually rivalted to Steve's, he was unable to defeat or kill him when his opposite gained the upper hand in the fight when Captain America succeeded to rip off his mask helmet and his armored gauntlets, led it to overthrew him for a chance in vicotry.

After the fight, Steve demanded Rumlow to reveal for whom he worked, and Rumlow claimed that it was Steve's best friend; Winter Soldier, whose pulled his strings before arming a bomb applied in his vest, intending to take Steve with him, but then, Scarlet Witch used her powers to contain the blast as Rumlow screamed in anguish. She was able to whisk him away from Rogers but unintentionially placed him with a building with hundrends of Wakandan nationals. Rumlow had been killed, and was among of those who perished in the explosion, right after Wanda could not mange to contain it.
