“ Hawk and the Winter Soldier ” introduced several new characters to the MCU, such as John Walker (Wyatt Russell), who promises to become a big villain after being defeated by the protagonists and stripped of his title of Captain America.
However, the series would also bring the presence of Ben Barnes (“The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian”) at the invitation of director Kari Skogland herself.
Unfortunately, the star had to decline the offer because he was recording ‘Shadow and Bones,’ Netflix’s upcoming fantasy series.
The information was revealed by Barnes during an interview with Rotten Tomatoes.
“Kari Skogland sent me a message saying she was going to direct ‘Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ and invited me in because she had created a character just for me. I had to decline the invitation because I was preparing the recordings for “Shadow and Bones”, so I have no idea who this character would be.
The star did not elaborate, so it is not known if another actor replaced him.
But everything indicates that the mysterious role was ruled out, as Skogland created it exclusively for Barnes.
One curiosity is that he once played a Marvel villain known as Jigsaw in the “ The Punisher ” series, which was canceled in 2018.
By the way, it should be remembered that the last episode of “ Falcão and the Winter Soldier ” opens tomorrow (23), on Disney +.
The same day that “Shadow and Bones” debuts on Netflix.
At Rotten Tomatoes, production started with an impressive 94% approval rating, scoring 7.46 / 10 based on 31 reviews to date. According to the general consensus, “from beautiful costumes to an impressive – if not intimidating – world-building, [a série] it is admittedly as meticulous as the original novels, but, by unrolling it in unexpected stories, it certainly widens the literary field to create new adventures for fans and newcomers ”.
