Actor Wyatt Russell receiving death threats due to his portrayal of John Walker Captain America.
This is disgusting. Sending death threats to any actor in any circumstance is a horrific, pathetic, ridiculous way to express hatred. Wyatt's character is meant to cause apprehension and distain - everyone is aware that Steve Rogers will have no worthy replacement - that's the point.
If you hate the character, then good, Wyatt is doing his job! He would have no doubt gone into the role knowing that he would be playing a hated character - what he would not have expected however, are the swarms of absolute crybabies claiming their lives are ruined by a fictional story not conforming to their every whim.
With characters that are deliberately designed to be hated, there is often an awareness between the content creators, the actors, and their audience - often the actor of such a reviled character will relish in the hatred, and be adored by fans for not only managing to successfully strike a nerve (which again, is the point), but also because they enjoy the deliberate conflict caused.
This is a human being with human feelings. You can hate the character for all the right reasons (and for all the wrong reasons if needs be too), but that shouldn't transfer across to the actor. If the actor is doing a bad job of something, you can express your disapproval, but when the actor is meant to be playing someone you want to punch in the face, then newsflash, he isn't doing a bad job is he?
Captain America is my favourite hero in the MCU. I was sad to see him go, but I recognise it was a needed exit. It was perfect and cathartic and I'm happy with his ending. In Falcon and the Winter Soldier, John Walker is designed be a mockery of the original Cap - someone that will no doubt succumb to evil because *repeat after me* he is not meant to fill Steve's shoes (from a storytelling perspective).
I'm aware of the size of my following on this platform, and I can't let something like this go by without mentioning it. If you send death threats to anyone, please unfollow me and don't come back. Go to anger management therapy. Learn to detach real life from fiction. Apply common sense prior to taking irrational action. And most importantly, enjoy the show!
If you're sending death threats, you don't deserve to watch. Stop acting like an emperor at a colosseum with your thumb down and get a grip. I'm also aware that he isn't the first victim of such abhorrent behaviour, and sadly this will no doubt be the last instance too.

This was, by far, the most human episode I've ever seen. Maybe even in all of the mcu.
Sam still being considerate of Walker after he just murdered someone. (that takes A LOT. we've always seen superheroes let their fist do the talking first)
Sam and Torres just having a casual conversation with each other, and the mentor-student vibe of Sam passing down the wings to him.
Walker's breakdown when he was discharged. (Wyatt Russell was incredible)
The American government not being able to tolerate what their country represents, because that's exactly what Walker is. A human form of the USA.
Zemo and Bucky. The relief written all over Bucky's face when he takes back control of his narrative.
Ayo going back to calling Bucky, "White Wolf", the reestablishment of trust and the small smile she gives him.
The whole scene with Isaiah and Sam. Everything about it.
Sam coming back home, to where he's most comfortable, being among people he knows and loves.
Bucky and Sam fixing the boat. Do I need to explain?
Walker straight up lying to Lemar's family to make himself feel better. (let's be honest, it was a dick move, but it was human. People do that sometimes)
Bucky coming to terms with the fact that it was wrong for him to keep shoving Steve's legacy in Sam's hands (realizing a mistake and accepting that you were wrong is an incredibly human thing to do)
Bucky actually apologising to Sam. Not your dudebro or some superhero type bs. He actually apologized. With words.
Sam and Bucky talking it out. I'm pretty sure this was the longest emotional conversation in all of mcu (again, I need to ramble about this later)
Sam and Sarah talking. Sarah telling him how much she believes in him.
"what's the point of all that pain and sacrifice if I wasn't willing to stand up and keep fighting?"

john walker v.s. steve rogers
“This is why you were chosen. Because a strong man, who has known power all his life, will lose respect for that power. But a weak man knows the value of strength and knows compassion.”

Okay, something I never tolerate is people sending people death threats. I have seen a ton of people saying that Wyatt Russell (left) the man who plays John Walker(right) in the new Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Is receiving death threats for absolutely no reason, other than DOING his job. If you hate his character, he is doing his job correctly which is to act. That does not give anyone the right to send him death threats. Hate his character, not him.

Passing the Mantle, from Steve Rogers to Sam Wilson: Captain America in the MCU - (2021)
Note: Isaiah Bradley was Captain America in the comics, but not in the MCU. Even when his achievement as a super soldier was finally acknowledged by the authorities, after "some individuals within the government tried to erase him from history" and that "his name went unknown for too long" (see: the text on his memorial at the Smithsonian), he was never given officially the title of "Captain America". However, I felt it was important to feature him in this series. His look is a mix between actor Carl Lumbly, the various "cap suits" and the comic version of the character.

PSA: Do NOT harass or bother Wyatt Russel in any way, please. He is not his character. He is not John Walker. Honestly, the fact that everyone hates John just means that Wyatt is fantastic at his job. But please, don’t say hateful things to Wyatt.

Just a gentle reminder that though we hate John Walker with every fibre of our being, we are welcoming Wyatt Russell in the MCU with open arms and lots of love.
