'Falcon and the Winter Soldier's' Wyatt Russell on his Reservations About Playing Captain America

Wyatt Russell was initially hesitant upon learning he would be taking up the mantle of Captain America in Disney Plus’ ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.’ Eventually, Russell came around, in part, as he explained to Variety, because Marvel made clear they didn’t want him to play Steve Rogers 2.0. Based on the vituperative fan reaction so far to John Walker on the show it’s safe to say Russell has effectively made his Cap quite different from Chris Evans’.

Here’s what Russell had to say about picking up Cap’s shield, working with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, and what it was like to see his face meme’d across the entire internet.
