The latest photo from the set of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has revealed that Wyatt Russell is set to play a new version of Captain America.
After Avengers: Endgame concluded with Steve Rogers passing the Captain America mantle on to Sam Wilson, most assumed the upcoming The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Disney series would pick up as the titular hero finds his way as Steve’s successor. However, the addition of newcomer Wyatt Russell in the role of John Walker/ U.S. Agent has indicated that Sam will face resistance to the idea of him becoming the new Captain America from the government.
In the comics, John Walker became the government-appointed Captain America after Steve Rogers retired from the role, but this new hero was eventually deemed unworthy of the title after a series of dark actions that included murdering the villains who killed his parents. Now, a new photo from the set of the series reveals propaganda posters featuring Wyatt Russell as Captain America, seemingly confirming the character will play a similar role in the series as his comic book counterpart.
Check out the post below to see the new set photos of Wyatt Russell’s Captain America.
