The MCU is notoriously secretive when it comes to potential spoilers. But fans are equally determined to sift through every bit of evidence or vague hint related to an MCU project that could reveal potential plot twists or storylines ahead of time. Get ready to speculate a little more, this time about a possible cameo by Chris Evans in The Falcon and the Winter SoldierWyatt Russell, who plays new Captain America John Walker on the show, was recently asked by BBC Radio if he had ever met Evans, and the actor’s reaction was very interesting.
“Have I ever met Chris Evans? I think so. I don’t think I ‘shook hands’ with him, but I think I walked past him somewhere and made eye contact. That counts as a stalker.” That doesn’t count as meeting someone. But I think so. You just have to wait until the end of the series and everyone will say, ‘Oh, wow’. “
If fans had to “wait for the series to end,” that means we’ll get to see Evans as Steve Rogers Captain America Walker at the end of The Falcon and The Winter SoldierMaking the possibility all the more intriguing is that rumors have circulated for months that Evans is reprising his role as Captain America in the MCU, and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier would be the perfect place to put him back into the franchise.
Of course, MCU fans have been burned before by rumors of epic cameos. The major guest character that Paul Bettany had teased for WandaVision turned out to be the actor himself who played “White Vision”. Considering how busy Evans has been as an actor and producer after his MCU days, it’s unlikely he would be interested in coming back into the womb as Steve Rogers after the character had such a satisfying end to his personal arc in Avengers: Endgame
Meanwhile, MCU fans are having a hard time warming up to the new Captain America. According to Russell, the plan had always been to portray John Walker as someone very different from Steve Rogers, and he enjoys the strong response fans have to his role.
The Marvel notion was, ‘Look, this is clearly not trying to do anything Chris Evans did. ‘ “Okay, great.” And you’re actually doing your own thing and I think it’s fun for people to do it. It’s really exciting for people to wear the character. “Well, you’re not that guy!” That’s kind of the point. It’s kind of what you play. It’s nice to be the Marvel punching bag for a while. “
