The Falcon and the Winter Soldier's jaw-dropping fourth episode finally saw John Walker's full-fledged transformation as "Captain America" after injecting himself with the super-soldier serum and it was pretty evident that the substance isn't going to do him any good as he unleashed such rage we haven't seen from him in previous episodes and ended up killing one of the Flag Smashers in gruesome fashion.
Naturally, Marvel fans found a new reason to despise the character because he clearly doesn't embody anything Steve Rogers stood for. The entire MCU fandom believes that Walker tainted not only the vibranium shield but also Captain America's legacy by showing his scary mean streak.
Walker's dastardly act also led to a lot of fans demanding Marvel Studios to bring back Chris Evans in his previous Steve Rogers form to go one-on-one with the new Cap and while his status remains unclear at this point, actor Wyatt Russell teases the possibility that he'll clash with Evans' Captain America by the end of the series.
In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Russell seemingly dropped hints about Evans appearing in the show. He said: "Have I ever met Chris Evans? I think I have. I don't think I've 'shook his hand' met him, but I think I've walked by him somewhere and made eye contact. That counts as being a stalker, that doesn't count as meeting anybody. But, I guess it would. You just gotta wait until the end of the series and then everybody will be like, 'Oh, wow.'"
Steve Rogers vs John Walker sounds like a money match for sure but as much as I'd love to see it go down in the series, I feel like it's too early for Steve to return if that's the actual plan. Let's not also forget that the series is meant to set up both Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes as the MCU's next big heroes and adding Rogers to the mix could hurt their chances of being taken seriously but that's just me.
The latest episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is now streaming on Disney+.
