With filming pretty much about to wrap up on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, there have been a few hints and rumours as to who a few of the new characters could be. We know that U.S. Agent will appear in the show and he will be played by ex. ice hockey player turned actor, Wyatt Russell, son of Kurt Russell. But who else may appear in the show?
From the previous set images that were revealed we know the show will at least in part, take place in the city of Madripoor. Madripoor is a famous city in the X-Men comics. We have long wondered exactly who could be brought in with this link, and it appears we may have an answer…
The above-left image comes courtesy of Murphys Multiverse and appears to show the logo of the Wolverine villain Ogun on the back of a biker’s jacket. The image on the right shows how Ogun is portrayed in the comics and this seems an uncanny resemblance.
Ogun is a supervillain who is a ninja and martial arts master who once trained Wolverine. He is believed to be a mutant, but very little is known of his past or the nature of his abilities.
The abilities he is known to have are telepathic abilities, superhuman agility and reflexes, and a halted or slowed aging.
If Ogun does appear then this could be a good place to introduce Wolverine into the MCU. I doubt we will see the clawed X-Man but there may be some references to him in the show.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is due to hit the streaming service Disney+ in the Fall of 2020. The original release date of August was moved due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As we hear more on the series we will be sure to keep you posted.
