Thunderbolts: Wyatt Russell Updates Fans on US Agent’s MCU Return

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier star Wyatt Russell reveals whether he knows if his MCU character US Agent is in the upcoming Thunderbolts movie.

Wyatt Russell has revealed whether he knows if U.S. Agent will be part of the upcoming Thunderbolts movie.

In an interview with The Playlist, Russell responded to a question asking if he would be reprising his U.S. Agent role in the long-rumored Thunderbolts movie. The upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film recently tapped Jake Schreier as director. “You know the idea, right? I’m not a moron. I mean, I know what they’re thinking of, but you don’t know when they’re going to do it, if they’re going to do it, what’s going to happen,” Russell explained. “When you get the phone call, you get the phone call. And they do a really good job of keeping it from everybody because, you know, they’ve got something to protect and I always say like, I’d just rather not know. Just don’t tell me. I don’t need to know. Just tell me when you want me to show up. Other than that, just keep me in the dark. I don’t care.”

Russell did confirm that he had not yet received a phone call from someone at Marvel Studios asking for him to return as U.S. Agent. “No, I’m just waiting on it,” he said. “You wait on it until, like, they announce it. They keep it really, really tight, and it’s like, you respect that because they’ve got other bottom lines to look out for than what they think I need to know.” Russell added that he hoped that when Marvel did tell him to suit back up, they would give him enough time to hit the gym, with the actor explaining that at the moment he “[doesn’t] look like John Walker.”

Created by writer Mark Gruenwald and artist Paul Neary, John Walker first appeared in Captain America #323 in 1986 as Super-Patriot. After a brief stint as Captain America, John Walker became the U.S. Agent, a name that has stuck with the character since 1989. Russell made his MCU debut as John Walker in the 2021 Disney+ limited series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Walker was introduced in the first episode as the MCU’s new Captain America, but by the series finale, had been stripped of that title and reintroduced as the U.S. Agent by Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.

A Thunderbolts film has been the subject of rumors for years, with very little official information being released about it. In the comics, the Thunderbolts are a team of former villains who accept perilous missions from the government under the oversight of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross. In addition to Schreier signing on as director, Eric Pearson has been hired as the film’s scriptwriter, with Kevin Feige as producer. Production on Thunderbolts is expected to commence in 2023.
