New casting information from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier seems to connect to a scene from Avengers: Endgame.

If new casting information is to be believed, it seems Daniel Bruhl’s Helmut Zemo won’t be the only threat Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes have to content with when The Falcon and the Winter Soldier finally arrives on Disney Plus. Fans were recently disappointed to learn how the series won’t make its original August release date after filming was delayed. Now, a Reddit user with a keen eye has spotted some intriguing casting on IMDB which may tie back to a scene from Avengers: Endgame.

Reddit user ‘littlvinny’ spotted that two stunt actors, Leon Ngo and Kawui Joa, have been added to the Disney Plus show’s cast list as “Yakuza Bike Rider” and “Yakuza Gang Member” respectively, with the pair supposedly appearing in the third episode. The Yakuza briefly appeared in Avengers: Endgame when Clint Barton was hunting them down for surviving the Snap when innocent civilians like his family died. So it’s possible Sam and Bucky will clean up after Barton’s bloody rampage across the world. It’ll be interesting to see if the series ties into the film in any other major ways.
