Wyatt Russell addresses the hate he has been receiving since the first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. With the third episode available to view on Disney+, the actor only gains more and more attention from the fans. The memes that are born from the hate garnered from the fans with the release of the new episodes are hilarious. Wyatt Russell states that he is fully aware of the attention he is getting online and admits that he welcomes it with open arms.
Wyatt Russell Addresses the hate:
“It would be an honor, I guess, to be disliked in the Marvel universe,” Russell previously told USA Today. During another recent conversation with Variety, Russell was asked if he’s seen some of the memes about his character.
“I don’t have social media, but I’ve gotten some of the stuff sent to me from friends that were just too good not to see. The best one is the ‘Up’ guy with the helmet on. It’s f*cking unbelievable. I mean, whoever did that deserves an award of some kind. It’s flattering. They just hate the guy. They just hate him! It was fun to be the Marvel punching bag for a little while,” Russell shared.
The meme being discussed in that conversation is the following:
His take on the role:
“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,” Russell explained to USA Today. “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.”
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s first three episodes are now streaming on Disney+. The rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 2021 line-up includes Loki premiering on Disney+ on June 11th, Black Widow in theatres and on Disney+ Premier Access on July 9th, What If… on Disney+ this summer, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in theatres on September 3rd, Eternals in theatres on November 5th, Hawkeye and Ms. Marvel coming to Disney+ later in the year, and Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home in theatres on December 17th.
