For a while it’s been known that the militant group, and long time Captain America villains, U.L.T.I.M.A.T.U.M. would make an appearance in this August’s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier on Disney+. But we haven’t heard anything about their leader, Flag-Smasher, just yet.
But now Falcon & Winter Soldier Updates has found something interesting, and posted the images on their Tumblr. They found some interesting graffiti with sayings that, when translated, express the anti-nationalist sentiment that Flag-Smasher is known for. While it could just be random graffiti in a building they’re filming it, the site that tracks production on the series feels pretty confident this was done for the show.
Flag-Smasher is an “old” Captain America villain from the 80s, and if U.L.T.I.M.A.T.U.M. is in the series (and there’s no reason to doubt it based on sources), then it’d make perfect sense to see their leader Karl Morgenthau in some way; even if it’s just a reference to set up a future appearance.
