Wyatt Russell Opens Up On Fans Being Upset About 'Falcon & The Winter Soldier' Reveal

Wyatt Russell is opening up about the big reveal on Disney+’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

The 34-year-old actor, who has some very famous parents, spoke to USA Today following the unveiling of his character, John Walker, on the Marvel series and admitted that he really hopes fans don’t hate him.

“People are probably going to hate it, and some people are going to love it,” Wyatt says of John Walker, who is the person now donning the iconic star-spangled suit of Captain America and will eventually be known as U.S. Agent.

He adds that “[movies and TV shows] are there to make people feel emotions, and I’m hoping that that’s what this show can do for people. Hopefully, they don’t hate me too much.”

The character Wyatt plays, John Walker, aka U.S. Agent, is actually a good guy in the comic books!

However, Wyatt says it would still be “an honor, I guess, to be disliked in the Marvel universe.”

He went on, opening up about how his Captain America will be different from the superhero that Chris Evans portrayed on the big screen.

“I don’t think there’s really been many MCU characters who’ve had quite the dilemma he’s had in terms of trying to fit into this sort of moralistic superhero world,” he says. “He’s been thrust into this role as Captain America and he’s going to do it his way, and he wants to do it right. But his way is a very specific way that he has learned through being basically a trained human hunter.”

Wyatt continues, “I mean, that’s what Marines are. They’re not Steve Rogers, they’re not the same. They’re not like Boy Scouts anymore. They’re a little bit more gnarly.”

The Falcon and the Winter Solider is streaming on Disney+ now.
