The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Interview with Writer Malcolm Spellman

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has come to an end, at least for now. We’re not sure if the series will continue under the moniker of Captain America and the Winter Soldier as the finale teased so cheekily, or if we should just buckle down and wait for Captain America 4. Either way, it’s clear that the stories of Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes are far from over.

Since the show’s head writer Malcolm Spellman (who is also co-writing the next Captain America movie) can’t talk about those kinds of things just yet, we wanted to speak with him about some of the pivotal character moments for Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), John Walker (Wyatt Russell), Karli Morgenthau (Erin Kellyman), and Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp). We were also curious about the kind of Marvel Cinematic Universe considerations that must be made when bringing a conflict like this to New York City.

We recently had a chance to speak with Malcolm Spellman over Zoom to talk about last weekend’s finale of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and we dive right into spoiler territory, so don’t read any further if you haven’t finished the show. Read More »

The first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier ended with a huge reveal: there was a new Captain America and he was played by actor Wyatt Russell. Episode two let us get to know John Walker, the soldier hand-picked by the United States government to fill Steve Rogers’ uniform after Sam Wilson gave up the shield, and something was…off. Especially when he made it very clear to the title characters, Steve’s actual allies, that there was going to be turbulence between them going forward. Here is a Captain America who doesn’t play nice.

We recently sat down with Russell over Zoom to talk about his character, who has a reputation for sliding between hero and villain on a regular basis in the pages of Marvel comics. He told us about what changed in him since he auditioned for Captain America: The First Avenger a decade ago, how he fits in the new show’s unapologetic politics, and how Walker will be a shade of grey for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

new captain america

After Avengers: Endgame, it looked like Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) would become the new Captain America. But not so fast! The new Disney+ series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier reveals that things aren’t so cut and dry, and instead, the new Cap in town is John Walker, played by Wyatt Russell. In the comics, Walker is a character known as U.S. Agent, but things are playing out a bit differently in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. And according to Russell, some Captain America fans are going to be put off by what’s in store.

escape from new york remake wyatt russell

Leigh Whannell is about to unleash The Invisible Man on audiences, but that’s not the only big genre title he has up his sleeve. Whannell is also attached to write (and possibly direct) an Escape From New York remake, based on John Carpenter’s 1981 classic starring Kurt Russell as Snake Plissken. The original Escape is one of Carpenter’s best-loved films, which means any remake is going to immediately inspire some suspicion from fans. In a new interview, Whannell talked a bit about the Escape remake, and also offered up a great casting suggestion for the new Snake Plissken.
