Wyatt Russell, the “new” Captain America
Things have gotten pretty ugly on the Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes series. The Avengers have met John Walker, a new “Captain America” who has not hesitated to pick up the witness that Falcon rejected from Steve when he decided to hang up the shield and go to live the life he always wanted with his beloved.
So far everything sounded more or less “good.” The problem has arisen when Walker has been carried away by ambition (and his enormous inferiority complex) and has taken advantage of a leftover vial of the Super Soldier serum to thus acquire superhuman strength and abilities that allow him to be superior in his confrontations.
As we have already seen in the shocking end of episode 4, This has only caused the worst side of this superhero attempt to come to light, starring in a grotesque scene that has done nothing but show that he is not worthy of wearing the captain America shield.
And now that? We know that Sam and Bucky will face him thanks to a new official trailer released by Disney -which you can see on these lines-, but some believe that the Avengers will not be alone and that they could have Steve Rogers himself (yes, with Chris Evans) on stage thanks to a statement by Wyatt Russell. What you are reading.
Is El Capi back?
If you remember correctly, a while ago the rumor broke that Chris Evans he was going back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor had allegedly said goodbye to his character in Avengers: EndgameHowever, a leak claimed that he was in negotiations for a return whose fate was currently unknown. It could be for a movie on the big screen, a cameo in theaters, or a stellar appearance in some of the Disney + series. In this sense, Falcon and the Winter Soldier it is undoubtedly the most favorable setting: it is closely related to his departure and there is no episode in which he is not named.
Despite the fact that the information sounded strong, Evans ruled out this possibility and even Kevin Feige, CEO of Marvel Studios, took care of deny the rumor. Why does it re-float now then? Well, because of Wyatt Russell.
The actor was interviewed for BBC Radio recently and when asked if he knew Evans personally, he indicated that not directly but that he had been close. The grace of the subject is that Russell does not end his intervention there but continues speaking and says that you have to wait for the end of the series and then people will say “oh wow”:
Hmm. I wonder.
Honestly I don’t know but I’ve been sent *a lot* of messages about it after my interview with Wyatt Russell – what do you think?

Have I met Chris Evans? I think so…. It wasn’t meant to shake his hand, but I walked up to him somewhere and made eye contact. And that doesn’t count… it counts as a stalker. That doesn’t count as meeting anyone [risas]. But, I guess so, I did… You just have to wait until the end of the series and then everyone will say, ‘Oh… wow.’ You love it? You hate it? I dont know.”
Has the actor left the tongue with such a statement? Will we see our beloved Steve Rogers finally back in the MCU?
