    Not really. All we know is that Zola apparently recruited Fennhoff because 1) the were SSR cellmates and 2) Fennhoff probably knew Leviathan would consider him compromised, so even if he escaped, he'd be hunted by both sides. So cozening up to Hydra was in his own best interest. It also means that what very little of what he knew of Leviathan would be of little to no use.

    HYDRA effectively owned the Leviathan base where Barnes was locked up between missions by the time they had him kill the Starks.

    Who said it was a Leviathan base? It was Russian military co-opted by Hydra. Not the same thing.

    As SHIELD to the US Defense Department in the MCU, so Leviathan to the Soviet Military apparatus.

    Oh, rats, I thought this thread bumping meant we finally got a trailer.

    Cool poster and it seems to suggest that three core supporting actors (Pugh, Harbour, Weisz) aren't secretly Taskmaster.

    I said out, dammit!
    Glad this is finally happening. It's a bit strange, tho, that her origin story will be filmed when she's 10 years older than we first saw her.

    I like the poster, the new costume for her is pretty cool, and the white one is pretty nifty too.

    Wow. I always thought there was a slight chance we might see him and/or Chris Evans again eventually, but I didn't expect it to be this soon. It seems kind of odd that they would just casually drop that in the Saturn Awards article before an official announcement was made. I wonder if that was a mistake?
