Danny Ramirez of Falcon and Wintersoldat would say 100 percent yes to more MCU action – as [Spoiler]?
With The Falcon and The Winter Soldier celebrating their finals this Friday, April 23rd, Danny Ramirez is excited about a possible future as Joaquin Torres – or better yet, the Air Force officer’s costumed alter ego.
Playing Sam Wilson / The Falcon’s fresh faced handler / Intel officer “has been a great pleasure so far,” Ramirez told TVLine. “It was all positive memories that were part of this story and I would say yes 100 percent [to more]. No doubt no questions were asked. Where do I sign? “
Ramirez would no doubt enjoy the chance to “adapt” and take on the Falcon persona like Torres did in the comics after Sam took over the cloak from Captain America. (Sam left his broken wings with Torres in the last episode, hmm….) But whether Torres will be drawn into the action at the end of the season instead of serving as a meek intelligence officer: “You have to wait and see,” the actor assures. “But there are a lot of exciting things on the street, maybe from what I’ve heard …. There are sure to be a lot of things to look forward to. “
Ramirez is even less open to the finale on Friday – if only because Marvel Studios has only been privy to its own scenes due to its secrecy measures.
Throughout the season: “I was curious how the story turned out because even when we were filming, I only got my scenes. I was surprised on the way, ”he tells TVLine.
Among those surprises was John Walker’s trajectory from the newfangled Captain America to the shamed soldier after he was caught on video murdering a man wearing Cap’s shield. A bonus scene at the end of Episode 5 then showed Walker making his own shield, suggesting that he could take on the mantle of the Marvel villain US agent.
It was interesting for Ramirez to watch Walker’s development, for better or possibly for worse.
“We have seen that his character is plagued by his view of patriotism,” he says. “Ultimately, Walker believes in what he does, but it has been skewed about the system he belongs to. To break that open and to be confronted with this cloud that fogged up his vision and pushed him over the line … that was fascinating to explore. “
The finale also seems poised to shed light on Karli and the Flag Smashers’ final, enraged by the fact that months earlier the blip brought back half of a population that the world had worked hard to avoid after the snap to live. (Ramirez told us he hadn’t heard of a pandemic that was deleted from the Flag Smashers storyline in post-production as postulated online by New Rockstars.)
“The present situation has dealt with the return of everyone [and] all that goes with it and what the Flag Smashers bring to the table and how they see the world, ”notes Ramirez. “Joaquin really fell for that.”
