John Walker in the MCU gained attention because his character Captain America was unpopular. But at the end of the Falcon and Winter Soldier series, he becomes a new character, namely a US Agent who will also play a key role in the MCU.
Here’s some information about the MCU version of John Walker:
1. John Walker is a former captain of the 75th Ranger Regiment of the United States Ground Forces
Prior to becoming Captain America, John Walker was also a captain in the 75th Ranger Regiment of the United States Ground Forces. Because of his achievements in the military, the US government chose John Walker as the new Captain America.
2. Been longtime friends with Lemar Hoskins who became his teammate
Lemar Hoskins was John Walker’s partner and best friend. He and Lemar have been friends since they were in school and both joined the US military. Having been friends for many years, he was very emotional when his best friend passed away.
3. His wife is Olivia Walker, who may also have an important role
Although there is no significant role, but John Walker’s wife Olivia Walker still regularly appears in the Falcon and Winter Soldier episodes. Like Lemar, Olivia met John Walker while in school. Since she’s always present, there’s a good chance she’ll have an important role as well, right?
4. His intentions as Captain America are good, but some implementations are wrong
John Walker is basically a good guy, at least in the MCU version. Every action he does is based on heroic feats. However, John Walker is quite short-tempered and is also willing to do anything to accomplish his goals, so he makes many mistakes in the process.
5. He was recruited by Val for an unknown scheme
After the case he committed after the time of killing the Flag Smashers member, John Walker’s position of Captain America was removed. So Val recruited John Walker (who became a Super Soldier) as a United States Agent for an unspecified plan. It could be a rival team of the Avengers, for example.
6. Actor Wyatt Russell is the son of Kurt Russell, who plays Ego
If you think actor Wyatt Russell looks familiar, it’s because his father is also in the MCU. His father is actor Kurt Russell, who played Ego in Guardians of The Galaxy.
7. Wyatt Russell once auditioned for the role of Steve Rogers in First Avengers
Wyatt Russell was cast for the role of Steve Rogers/Captain America in the movie Captain America: The First Avengers. But as we all know, in the end the chosen one was Chris Evans.
