There is little doubt that the latest episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has been truly jaw-dropping. However, it looks like the next one is going to be even better. Episode 5 is set to be the show's longest one so far and it will also introduce a surprising Marvel comic book character.
It's no secret that the last three episodes of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier have been hyped up by the cast and crew of the Marvel Cinematic Universe series. Sebastian Stan had stated that the cliffhanger in Episode 4 was going to be a memorable one and he wasn't wrong. So what can we expect in the fifth episode?
We have previously reported about The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Episode 5 runtime being 61 minutes. That means it's set to be the longest episode of the MCU series so far. Interestingly, the episode is also set to bring in a new character.
Showrunner Malcolm Spellman had previously teased about a character who will be introduced in the fifth episode who he claims would be great with Thor. Now, new intel from SlashFilm confirms that this mysterious character is actually someone who exists in the comics.
In addition to that, they will be portrayed by "a well-known performer" but they are not yet expected to show up in an MCU film. However, this could change depending on how well their appearance in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Episode 5 will be received by fans.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Episode 5 has not yet been given an official title. Nevertheless, the new episode will be released on Disney+ on April 16.
