Falcon and The Winter Soldier Casting Reveals Big Avengers: Endgame Connection


Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson and Sebastian Stan's Bucky Barnes are heading for an adventure of their own in Disney+'s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and it looks like Daniel Bruhl's Helmut Zemo won't be the only threat they'll face.

On the show's official IMDB page (via Redditor littlvinny), The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has apparently cast Kawui Joa and Leon Ngo as a "yakuza gang" member and "yakuza bike rider" respectively. The listings reveal that they will both appear in the third episode of the show, but there weren't anymore context provided as to how the pair will factor into the series.

Since the pair will only appear in one episode, it's safe to assume that they'd have minor roles. That's not to say that their parts won't be of importance, considering that they could serve as the connective tissue to the Hawkeye series.

If you recall, the Yakuzas played a role in Avengers: Endgame, where Jeremy Renner's Clint Barton took on the mantle as Ronin, killing those who he felt didn't deserve to live after the snap, including the Japanese Yakuza. Having these listing indicates that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier could both tie the series to the events of Endgame as well as the upcoming Hawkeye series, potentially exploring more of Clint's days as Ronin.

It's also worth noting that this isn't the first person to be included in a biker gang on the show, with set photos previously released showing a gang in Madripoor, possibly teasing X-Men villain Ogun.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been removed from the August rollout schedule and is yet to have a new release date.
