Starting today, the new chapter of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the new series of the Disney Plus, is available in the Disney Plus catalog. Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Scarlet Witch and Vision, whose plot follows Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes after the events of Avengers: Endgame where they will have to deal with the appearance of a new Captain America appointed by the United States Government.
At the end of the first episode we could already contemplate John walker embodying the new Captain America (also known in the comics as the USA people) and in chapter 2 of Falcon and the Winter Soldier we see him with a partner, Lemar Hoskins, who has the nickname Battle Star (Battlestar), which is played by actor Clé Bennett.
Created by Mark Gruenwald and Paul Neary, the character was introduced in Captain America # 323 as one of the Bold Urban Commandos. He adopted the identity of Bucky accompanying John Walker as the new Captain America, both undergoing a rigorous training program. Hoskins would later be known by the nickname Battle Star.
In the series Falcon and the Winter Soldier we see both Walker and Hoskins being friendly with Bucky and Sam, although they are not very comfortable with the new Captain America. This rejection is especially experienced by Bucky, who does not accept Walker as heir to his best friend’s shield.
Although the new captain america tries to help Sam and Bucky and tries to get them all to collaborate together, the strong differences between the two groups make Walker warn Falcon and the Winter Soldier not to get in his way during the investigation of the terrorist group whose members seem to they have been administered the super soldier serum.
¿John Walker will end up being a threat to Falcon and the Winter Soldier.? We’ll have to wait for next Friday’s episode to find out!
