Falcon & Winter Soldier Debuts Us Agent’s Costume
Directed by Kari Skogland, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier stars Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Wyatt Russell, Noah Mills, Carl Lumbly, and Daniel Brühl. The series is set to premiere on March 19, on Disney+. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series is getting its due appreciation and Marvel is continuously teasing their audience by putting out a bunch of easter eggs that will definitely pan out to something very important in the series that will be available for streaming on Disney+. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s Season 1 synopsis reads:
“Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) team up in a global adventure that tests their abilities — and their patience — in Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. The all-new series is directed by Kari Skogland; Malcolm Spellman is the head writer.”
The US Agent that was earlier pointed out throughout the trailers and Easter eggs, is now again in talks as his first official look debuted as part of Topp’s MARVEL Collect!’s, a mobile app that gives fans a sneak peek at the Disney+/Marvel Studios series’ character designs through digital cards. John F. Walker’s alter-ego’s look — US Agent — was shared on Twitter, wearing a blue and red redesign of the Captain America costume worn in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. US Agent, aka John F. Walker, will don combat gear displaying American iconography with bold red stripes moving laterally across the chest, an American flag badge on his shoulder, and a star on the helmet with an A in its center.

The Topps photos feature Wyatt Russell who will be playing John F. Walker (aka US Agent) and is a newcomer to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The said actor is best known for his role as Corporal Lewis Ford in Julius Avery’s 2018 horror flick, Overlord, and as Dud in the AMC dramedy Lodge 49. Walker debuted as the self-deputized persona, Super-Patriot, in 1986’s Captain America #323. The intricate anti-hero was eventually got taken by and tapped by the United States government to continue as Captain America, shortly after Steve Rogers stepped down from the position and decided to pass on the legacy.
We know that Steve, at the end of Avengers: Endgame, passes on his shield to Sam Wilson, the Falcon, and tells him to continue Captain America’s legacy. How Walker being selected by the United States government will interfere with Wilson having inherited the role and the Vibranium shield from Rogers is not yet revealed. But we suspect a lot of drama and class apart action. Both John F. Walker and Sam Wilson have held the Captain America monicker at one point or another in Marvel Comics. However, according to Mackie, the Captain America title is still “up for grabs” in the upcoming series.
Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show, Mackie revealed that the new Captain America will be named by the end of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Though it may not be an easy ride, the question of “where the shield’s gonna end up” is the primary concern of the series. Mackie would not say who will assume the mantle and the answer may not be who we expect. He says,
“At the end of Endgame, Sam didn’t accept the shield. If you remember, he told Steve, ‘It doesn’t feel right because this shield is yours.’ So, you know, the show is a long way of figuring around who’s gonna be Captain America. Where the shield’s gonna end up and if Captain America, if that moniker is gonna come back and somebody’s gonna hold that moniker again.”
It’s been said that Mackie apparently knows everything that will go down in Marvel’s Phase 4 which was kicked off by Disney+ WandaVision, on 15th January 2021. Anthony Mackie is really excited to see how the fans react to everything that is on its way. I mean, keeping so much information within is tough, for one I know I wouldn’t be too good with the revelation, just like Tom Holland. You understand the reference. As the old heroes bow out or head on their own journeys, new blood will fill out the Avengers, and new leaders will rise to the challenge. As a new multi-film epic is just beginning, Disney+ series such as Hawkeye and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will explain the rise of entirely new heroes and successors to old ones.
The Falcon & The Winter Soldier will land on Disney+, on March 19, 2021.
