It looks like Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is set to give us more heroes and villains in the upcoming Disney+ series which is currently in production.
According to Murphy’s Multiverse, the MCU is introducing Lemar Hoskins, aka Battlestar. The site obtained set photos that feature Wyatt Russell’s John Walker walking into a flower shop named Hoskins Family Flowers. Russell filmed scenes inside and outside the store while speaking to an unknown actor.
For those unfamiliar with the character, Lemar Hoskins was once a wrestler who had been giving superhuman strength through a treatment administered by the Power Broker. Hoskins became one of the Bold Urban Commandos, or “Buckies,” who wore variations on Captain America’s costume and claimed to be supporters of Captain America’s rival, John Walker aka U.S. Agent. So think of Battlestar as U.S. Agent’s Bucky.
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are reprising their roles as Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes. Emily VanCamp is also officially to return, VanCamp originated the role of Sharon Carter in Captain America: The Winter Soldier before reprising her part in Civil War. Daniel Bruhl will also return as Baron Zemo. Also joining the series in an unknown role is Adepero Oduye (The Big Short).
All six episodes of the miniseries, which will air in August 2020, will be directed by Emmy nominee Kari Skogland (The Handmaids Tale, The Punisher), with Derek Kolstad (John Wick) apart of the writing team. There are reports that surfaced last week that the series could have some sort of massive viral threat in the series.
