In the past, I used to think that "Nope" replies were lackadaisical and dismissive.
Aderpo Oduye has joined the cast in an undisclosed role.
Rumor-- Captain America had Bucky and Sam, and USAgent has Lamar Hoskins, AKA Battle Star.
I hope the US Agent thing is just the US government being morons and not some nefarious evil plot in the background.
In the comics, it was a bit of both. A Government Program that got hijacked by a supervillain.
Set pics of Sebastian Stan in costume.
Also, Desmond Chiam and Miki Ishikawa have joined the cast.
I liked Chaim on Reef Break, so I'm happy to hear about his casting.
According to IMDb, Falcon and Winter Soldier is the second most anticipated show 2020, behind Star Trek Picard.
This is nowhere near being a bad thing.
Another set photo indicates that we may be seeing the introduction of another newly acquired FOX property...
Spoiler: Falcon and Winter Soldier
...the island nation of Madripoor...
...into the MCU.
Spoiler: Idle speculation
I wonder if they'll hear stories of a hairy little runt with claws and an eyepatch?
For the record, I think Madripoor would be the perfect way to introduce Wolverine into the MCU. Establish him and his adventures there before bringing him into the X-Men.
Sounds like this will be more of a "Spy Thriller" type of show rather than a straight up superhero thing.
That's definitely a surprising location.
Feige told us we'd need to watch the Disney+ shows, so he may have far more than we expected up his sleeve. (Though if Sam and Bucky start walking around with a Baby Rocket I'm calling shenanigans.)
Makes me realize how much of my comic knowledge is probably 15+ years old. Regarding the spoiler
Spoiler: question re: location
Something that doesn't matter as much in comic form but with live-action what would be the race/ethnicity of Madripoor? From the comics I always pictured Vietnamese or the like but have they ever actually said?
Yes, via the Marvel Atlas.
So, expect two to five dozen ethnic groups represented. Vietnamese people are almost certainly part of the local mix.
Which makes sense. Going for that Captain America:Winter Soldier feel I think works well with the characters. It would be nice if they could work some Agent of Shield characters into the story but I think Feige hates all the tv stuff that came before these new Disney shows.
He can't hate ALL of them, they brought back James Darcy as human Jarvis in Endgame.
Foolish on his part if true, as Daredevil and The Punisher are superior to a large number of the MCU entries. Their loss is one for the entire Disney/Marvel project.
I did like see human Jarvis again. One theory I do have though is part of this whole multi-verse thing they are cooking up is a chance to not just introduce the X-Men and maybe the Fantastic 4 but also to open they doors for his own versions of Daredevil and The Punisher etc while not shitting on the fans of those shows by being able to say they still exist out their in the multi-verse.
Cool. I haven't read anything involving the spoiler, but I know it's a big part of the comics, so it's nice to see them bringing it into the MCU.
S.W.O.R.D. is owned by Fox? Which comics was it introduced in? I had always assumed it was from Iron Man or Avengers, something that had a lot of stuff with S.H.I.E.L.D.
