'Falcon and the Winter Soldier': Behind the scenes video shows US Agent in action
An online video has surfaced that shows the sets of 'Falcon and the Winter Soldier' and a fight scene featuring a man in a Captain America costume
There are no trailers for 'Falcon and the Winter Soldier' out yet, but you can see the new Captain America in action. An online video, showing the sets of the series, has captured an action scene taking place between a man in a Captain America costume fighting off half a dozen henchmen dressed in black.
The man in costume is likely Wyatt Russell as John Walker/US Agent, or at least his stunt double. While the plot for 'Falcon and the Winter Soldier' remains under wraps, it appears that someone else will be taking up Captain America's (Chris Evans) legacy in the wake of his secret retirement after 'Avengers: Endgame'.
The video has been shot at night and it shows the costumed figure fighting off henchmen while another person helps captured civilians escape a truck — the US Agent is apparently not working alone. The shot sees John Walker wielding Captain America's iconic shield, or a version of it, as he fights his attackers off.
US Agent is a character who is seen by many as the more conservative, hard-edged version of Captain America. Though both share larger goals, their specific methodology differs greatly. John Walker might be more of a militaristic mind than the often anti-establishment Steve Rogers ever was.
With the US Agent fighting off henchmen and rescuing civilians out in the street, it remains to be seen how the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and the Winter Soldier (Bucky Barnes) will be fitting into things. In the comics, both of them have carried on the Captain America legacy in their own right. Bucky himself is still a wanted, international terrorist when we last checked, but the Falcon, now wielding Steve Rogers' shield, is the perfect public face to officially carry Captain America's legacy forward.
Both of them are going to have to deal with John Walker first.
'Falcon and the Winter Soldier' releases on Disney+ in August.
