Before he was cast as US Agent in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Wyatt Russell auditioned for another Marvel character.
The 34-year-old actor appeared on Good Morning America this week and revealed that he actually auditioned for Captain America years ago. The role was portrayed by Chris Evans for just about ten years in the Avengers franchise.
In fact, it was his first real audition.
“I think that honestly, the first audition was really more just something to read, to see if I was any good at acting or not,” Wyatt admitted. “I don’t think I was ever actually in competition for the role, but it was crazy.”
For his new role as John Walker, aka US Agent, Wyatt says that he had “no idea” about who he was playing.
Earlier this month, Wyatt opened up about the big reveal about his character and weighed in on if Marvel fans are included to hate him.
