Before saying one line in the MCU, Russell’s John Walker is already hated by fans on the internet. In a way, this is the sign of a great villain, but most people are just poking fun at how he looks in the suit compared to Steve Rogers.
In a recent interview with USA Today, actor Wyatt Russell teased how his new Captain America is “a little bit more gnarly” of a character than Chris Evan’s previous rendition. Russell is playing John Walker, who was previously a Marine before being handed the shield
“I don’t think there’s really been many MCU characters who’ve had quite the dilemma he’s had in terms of trying to fit into this sort of moralistic superhero world. He’s been thrust into this role as Captain America and he’s going to do it his way, and he wants to do it right. But his way is a very specific way that he has learned through being basically a trained human hunter. I mean, that’s what Marines are. They’re not Steve Rogers, they’re not the same. They’re not like Boy Scouts anymore. They’re a little bit more gnarly.”
