Episode 4 of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier was slow but ended on a high note. The Marvel series, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan in the titular roles, began with a quick flashback to Bucky’s time in Wakanda but quickly left fans speechless as John Walker (Wyatt Russell) painted blood on Captain America’s shield.
The new Captain America has killed a member of Flag-Smasher after the leader of the group, Karli, kills John’s best friend and partner, Battlestar. Several Marvel fans took to Twitter and expressed their shock at the turn of events.
While John proved that there couldn’t be another Steve Rogers, fans were overjoyed to see him get beaten up by Dora Milaje from Wakanda. Since the start of the series, fans have made no secret of their dislike of the new Captain America. In the fourth episode, Dora Milaje’s women cross Walker’s path and end up beating him up as Zemo (Daniel Brühl), Sam and Bucky watch them. The scene caught the attention of fans. They took to Twitter and bowed to the women of Wakanda.

Russell, who dons the hat costume for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, is aware of the hatred his version of Captain America has aroused. Speaking to Forbes, he said he didn’t mind the reactions. “I hope people can watch it, enjoy it and make it think. You can think of my character anything you want. Hope this reminds you that, you know, you are human and looking at things makes you feel something and it doesn’t no matter how you feel, ”he says.
In a conversation with USA Today, Russell had confessed his hopes that he would not receive too much hatred for his actions on the show. “(Movies and TV shows) are there to make people feel emotions, and I hope that’s what this show can do for people. He added that “it would be an honor, I guess, not to be loved in the Marvel Universe.”
