The Falcon and the Winter Soldierremains in delay limbo on Disney+, leaving all the more time for fans to speculate and theorize about the show’s story ahead of its eventual release date. The cast has a good number of actors announced, but only a handful of characters. Thankfully, Charles Murphy of Murphy’s Multiverse has a compelling idea for a comics villain who could face off against Bucky and Sam — and potentially challenge Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on the big screen.
Murphy’s guess draws upon quite a bit of background information: the one confirmedFalcon and Winter Soldier role we know about is Wyatt Russell as John Walker, otherwise known as U.S. Agent. This character seemingly ties the series to one particular era of Captain America comics, helmed by Mark Gruenwald.
If Gruenwald’s ten-year run on the comics from 1985 to 1995 is indeed the inspiration for this series, there’s one glaring absence from the cast speculation. Power Broker was a mysterious villain connected to an extremely powerful conglomerate known only as The Corporation. Also known as Curtiss Jackson, his abilities were not as much super, but manipulative.
