‘He Can Go Through Therapy’: US Agent Actor Wyatt Russell Wants John Walker To Address the Conflict in Him, Become Better For MCU Return

Wyatt Russell talks about his MCU character, John Walker. With the expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, a number of characters have joined phase 4. One of these characters is the US Agent John Walker, introduced to the fans in Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The antihero character played by Wyatt Russell is the government replacement for Captain America and even though he took on the mantle, he was nowhere close to being anything like the real Cap, just like Bucky said.

Wyatt Russell talks about John Walker, his character in MCU

As the Disney+ series progressed, we saw John Walker slowly crack and he ends up taking the super-soldier serum. He then brutally murders a member of the Flag Smashers, using Cap’s shield. This results in him losing his place as Captain America, but there’s more for him waiting. The actor talked about his one hope for the character in his interview with Collider.

He said, “I haven’t really even thought about, if the character comes back, what I hope he becomes. There are so many different ways that you can go with it. I just hope that whatever it is, is continued along this line of this struggle with self. That is something that I can do, as well as I think it needs to be done. As long as he has that conflict within himself, he can have a change of mind and he can go through therapy. There are lots of different ways you can go. I only ever hope that it goes an interesting way, but a certain way, that’s not up to me.”

The future of the US Agent

In the series, the character had a new beginning at the end. With Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s Val recruiting him as a US Agent, he seems like an ideal choice to be in Marvel’s Thunderbolts. Though the cast has not been announced yet and even the actor said he does not know much about the character’s future as the studio does a “really good job of keeping it secret.”
