Wyatt Russell talks Captain America, anti-John Walker memes in 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier'

In the new Disney+ series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a new Captain America has arrived.

John Walker, played by Wyatt Russell, is taking up the stars and stripes shield, an act that's proved divisive, to say the least, on social media. Russell recently spoke to Yahoo Entertainment about how he landed the role and what he thinks about the internet's anti-John Walker stance.

"I am not here to say you should like him or you shouldn't like him," Russell said, although he adds that if there isn't some backlash to a performance, "you did something wrong" as an actor.
