Captain America: New World Order is gearing up to begin filming in the coming weeks. While so much of the film still remains shrouded in mystery, one of its actor may have just revealed an interesting tidbit.
Speaking to Variety at the red carpet of this year’s Oscars, actor Danny Ramirez shared how excited he was to begin working on the film. In the midst of his exchange with the outlet’s reporter, he said that he had been preparing for his return as Joaquín Torres by training. However, he didn’t simply say he was doing some light cardio.
Instead, he said, “I wake up and I do boxing and kickboxing and some type of martial art.”
But why would a character who was a civilian the last time we saw him need to train so intensely? “So in this next movie we can assume–,” the reported began to ask, before Ramirez smiled.
“I guess you could assume,” he said quizically.

In the comics, Joaquín Torres is the second person to take on the mantle of Falcon after Sam Wilson. And on top of the friendly dynamic being established in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Torres affinity for Sam’s tech is also teased. While not confirmed, I think Ramirez’s demeanor during this interview tells us all we need to know about what he’ll be doing in his next MCU appearance.
