Actor Wyatt Russell plays the new Captain America on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but his connection the MCU goes back many years. Russell auditioned for the role for the 2011 movie, a part that Chris Evans would eventually get a perform many times over the years.
Russell told Good Morning America that he doesn’t believe he was ever seriously considered for the role. “The first audition was really more just something to read to see if I was any good at acting or not. I don’t think I was ever actually in competition for the role. It was crazy,” he said.
Russell now plays the new Captain America on Falcon and the Winter Soldier. He also shared some insight on his audition for that show, and it was steeped in mystery.
