The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Will Bring Back Early MCU Characters

While The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will reunite characters from the Captain America trilogy, as well as introduce new members of the MCU, it sounds like we’re going to see even more appearances from the earliest days of the MCU in the series.

In the Script Apart podcast (via Empire) writer Derek Kolstad teased:

“What I will say is that there are characters from the earliest Marvel movies that are coming back,” Kolstad said. “We’re layering them in and reinventing them in a way that’s gonna shift the storytelling structure. It’s fucking awesome.”

Many are speculating that he could be referring to villains such as The Leader, Abomination, or Justin Hammer as The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is a big part of setting up the MCU’s Thunderbolts.
