A new Captain America is set to make their debut in the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but rather than Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, the honour is set to fall to Wyatt Russell’s John Walker (a.k.a. U.S. Agent/Super-Patriot).
In the comic books, Walker is chosen by the U.S. government to replace Steve Rogers after he gives up the role of Captain America, and – as we’ve glimpsed in the Super Bowl TV spot – it looks like a similar scenario is going to play out in the MCU series. And, thanks to a set video doing the rounds on social media, we’ve got our first look at the new “Cap” in action as he battled a group of thugs; check it out in the embed below…
? Alerta de spoiler!
