At long last, Disney+ is here and with it came a short Marvel Studios clip called Expanding the Universe, a quick edit of the series set to come to the new direct-to-consumer offering over the next few years. With it came a whole load of never-before-seen concept art, including a great look at Falcon's new costume and the first pieces of concept art featuring Kate Bishop on Hawkeye. Also included was the very first look at Wyatt Russell's U.S. Agent, a character to set make his MCU debut in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier next fall. His costume is nearly identical to Captain America, feature a navy and scarlet design the mimicks the United States flag. Check it out in its full glory below.
Russell's exact role in the show has yet to be revealed, though many can speculate the government made itself a new Captain America after Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) grew old. Naturally, Sam and Bucky (Sebastian Stan) might have a problem with that. Stan said in a recent con appearance he's read the scripts and fans should expect the unexpected.
“I’ll tell you I have [seen scripts],” Stan said of the series during a recent convention appearance. “I have seen them and I’m so excited about it. It’s going to be so cool and kind of crazy. All I can say is it’s just new and different from what you’ve seen so far. I mean, it will be totally in line with everything that has happened and what we’ve seen and so on, but these characters are getting such additional mileage in terms of learning about who they are now, what they feel, what they’re thinking, and there’s a lot of action, comedy, you know there’s going to be comedy. I feel like you’re going to be happy. I think you’re going to be very happy. And there’s some crazy stuff, like stuff you don’t see coming from anywhere.”
The Falcon and Winter Soldier is scheduled to drop on Disney+ around this time next year. If you haven't signed up for DIsney+ yet, you can do that here. You can also get a free year of Disney+ through Verizon for a limited time.
