It was in tune with the times but it is now validated: Marvel formalized a cinema project around the Thunderboltsthose anti-Avengers most of whose members have already been featured in the mcu. Director Jake Schreier and screenwriter Black Widow Eric Pearson have been hired to make the movie. Marvel implied that the group will be made up of heads well known to fans. Since they were accosted by the Countess Valentina Allegra De Fontaine to join the team, US Agent (Wyatt Russell) and Yelena Bolova (Florence Pugh) should be part of it, just like Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), Abomination (Tim Roth), Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl), the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) or the Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko).
The public was able to discover US Agent, aka John Walkerin The Falcon and The Winter Soldier on Disney+. First presented as the right person to succeed Captain America, the US Agent let a dark part of himself take over, until he brutally massacred a member of the Flag Smashers, causing it to be marginalized from public opinion. The actor recently spoke to The Playlist while promoting his new film Under the Banner of Heavenand the conversation eventually included his future at marvel studios. Russell confided that he clearly did not know the plans that Marvel had for him even if we can suspect that he will return in the film.
“No, I’m just waiting for that [Le coup de fil de Marvel]. You wait until, for example, they announce it. They’re keeping the project really, really secret, and that’s how you respect that because they have other bottom lines to watch than what they think I need to know. »
It will be interesting to see the trajectory of theU.S. Agent a posteriori of the events of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Considering the other characters of Thunderbolts, US Agent could perhaps benefit from a new notoriety in the eyes of the people.
