    I feel so bad people are hating on him as a person. You can go a head and hate the character (i do ) but leave the actor out of it.

    Hope the hate for his character doesn’t translate into him as an actor because he is doing an amazing job as John Walker

    John is a good cap by what the show has provided me for johns character he has put in the work for the mantle and I respect him in a way. he’s really good with the shield and he understands that this is no job like his before he became the new cap. I do understand he’s bad and I would say the same thing that shield and mantle does not belong to you but if it didn’t come down to anyone I think I would pick him to be cap. But if he wasn’t going to turn bad then I’d definitely have him to atleast pass it Sam because the shield and mantle doesn’t belong to him. And the unnecessary hate is outrages like it’s so toxic and stupid to hate on him anyway it’s so pointless. Let’s take ep.1 and 2 into perspective. You’re hating on a guy that’s trying his best to partake in a role that is an near impossible job for an ordinary human, he has put in the work and that’s why he’s there in the first place and he’s Understood how Steve was as cap but still understands he could never be like Steve he can only be the best he can.

    I went into this expecting to hate John Walker but Marvel went ahead and made him human. Great job, Marvel! I love these shades of gray characters. Seeing Battlestar also made my day. I’m such a comicgeek…

    I was really impressed with his performance as John Walker. I’ve seen him on Black Mirror and Lodge 49, so I knew he was a good actor, but I still thought he was a strange choice for the role. But I trusted Marvel made the right choice and I wasn’t disappointed. Never once did I think of him as a surfer dude. I was totally convinced he was a proud yet conflicted soldier trying to live up to his predecessor’s name. Can’t wait to see more!

    here is a little tidbit on Wyatt. When he was younger he wanted to be a goalie in the NHL so his parent came to Vancouver to support and wat6ch him play on a junior team for a couple years. I would see his parent around town and they were the nicest people you would ever want to meet.

    You guys understand you’re not meant to like this new Captain America right? You’re not meant to hate him but you shouldn’t feel like he deserves the title.
    People saying “I can’t believe they replaced Chris Evans with this guy!” THAT’S EXACTLY THE POINT!
    I know most people get this but the amount who don’t is just shocking

    Never liked this guy, now I know why he’s been pushed so much. I love Kurt Russell but this guy is talentless. When I first saw him, I thought he was an imposter Captain America that was evil or would be killed off. Then I found out he was US Agent. Now I’ve found out he’s Kurt Russell’s son. So he’s going to be around a while.

    Great.

    I don’t care about this show at all, but I Iove Wyatt Russell. It’s a crime that Lodge 49 didn’t get to have a 3rd season and continue/finish the story. I’m honestly still gutted to this day. AMC can go to hell.

    Wow, Wyatt Russell not only favors Kurt, their voices sound almost identical! I think he’s doing a great job with John Walker, balancing the character’s earnestness with some brashness. But as others have said, if you’re disliking John Walker, WR must be doing something right!
