John Walker, the new Captain America in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier performed by Wyatt Russell, has divided the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper throughout the center.
Russell has an unenviable job of following Chris Evans’ career-best flip. It doesn’t assist that the first look of the actor as Cap was meant to evoke derision and disgust. His look impressed quite a few memes on social media.
While the first episode solely confirmed a glimpse of the man, this one confirmed extra particulars about his character. The second episode did lots in humanising a personality that individuals, each inside MCU and the followers, see as an impostor of the actual individual and usurper of the mantle of Captain America.
Steve Rogers retired as a superhero at the finish of Avengers: Endgame, leaving the protect in Sam Wilson’s care. However, Sam selected to donate the protect to the Smithsonian museum. And the US authorities determined to bestow the Adamantium protect to Jon Walker, a soldier.
Since MCU doesn’t at all times comply with the lore very faithfully, John Walker in the present might be fairly totally different from the comics model. In the comics, he was launched as Super-Patriot, the very antithesis of Captain America. Unlike Steve Rogers’ inclusive patriotism, Walker’s model of patriotism is of the extremist form. And that’s the reason he typically comes into battle with Steve. However, he’s not an out-and-out villain and is extra of an anti-hero.

Later, Walker assumes the mantle of Captain America as effectively in the comics, and then U.S. Agent.
In the present, nonetheless, regardless of the noise surrounding him, and Bucky and Sam’s reservations about him, he looks like an general good man. When Sam and Bucky refused to take down the Flag-Smashers collectively, he did warn them about not interfering in his plans. So not an entirely good man.
We have a sense that earlier than the finish of the present, he and Sam-Bucky duo might be at loggerheads with one another.
Walker is a adorned soldier and has peak bodily power and can wield Cap’s protect fairly effectively. But he’s not a super-soldier and was not injected with any particular serum and this was evident when he went head-to-head in opposition to the Flag-Smashers, who have been injected with the serum.
It can’t be stated whether or not John Walker is the subsequent Cap of MCU or not. Either method, we should always see way more of him in the coming episodes.
