Falcon And The Winter Soldier Will Introduce New Character “Battlestar”

Falcon and the Winter Soldier has begun production and fans who are hanging around the sets are getting some juicy tidbits about the show. This time it’s about the possible introduction of a new character who has all the wrong motives. But he will need Captain America to get it all done.

Avengers: Endgame showed Steve Rogers choosing Falcon to be the successor for the mantle of Captain America. While its unlikely Steve himself will show up anytime soon, but this act lead to the Falcon and the Winter Soldier show on Disney+ which will show us the next adventures of the duo. There are a lot of cast members who are returning from previous movies but there’s a new surprise character who has been revealed.

Falcon and the Winter Soldier has begun filming as indicated by its titular stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan. The show will be following the storylines from Captain America: Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Endgame. According to new reports, Falcon and The Winter Soldier will introduce “Battlestar” to the MCU.

Evidence for this comes from a fan who snapped set photos where “Hoskins Family Flowers” shop was set up. Now, this is a pretty good indication that at the very least Lemar Hoskins will be included in the show even if his superhero persona Battlestar doesn’t emerge.

Battlestar in the Marvel comics goes by Lemar Hoskins. He was introduced in 1986 as a partner to John Walker, a US Agent. John Walker will also appear in Falcon and The Winter Soldier and will be played by Wyatt Russell. As for how Lemar Hoskins got his powers, it was a result of the same experimentation that gave Walker his powers.

In the comics, Hoskins helps Walker become popular as a replacement of Captain America by staging fake attacks the “hero” could stop by making use of a group called the BUCkies. His tactics worked and Walker’s hero persona was changed from “Super-Patriot” to Captain America. Hoskins then became his Bucky but decided that his name was too racist and so changed his persona to “Battlestar.”

Since the show is literally about the duo Falcon and the Winter Soldier, so a sort of battle between them and Hoskins/Walker won’t be too surprising.
