We’ve already seen Seth Rollins in some photos from the set of Captain America: Brave New World .
it was clear from the beginning that the wrestler would be playing a member of the Serpent Society . Well, now the usually reliable CanWeGetSomeToast reveals the identity of the character.
Apparently, Rollins will lend his face to Cobra , a supervillain who has had two different incarnations in the comics: Klaus Voorhees and his nephew Piet . Both were subjected to a mutagenic serum that gave them superhuman powers, including strength, endurance, agility, reflexes, as well as the ability to adhere to walls and an unusually flexible body. While Klaus was the head of the Serpent Society (a role that in the film will go to Diamondback , aka Rosa Salazar ), Piet is instead a mercenary of international level.
The source also reports that Seth Rollins has finished filming, and this could be a clue on the state of production, although the wrestler certainly has fewer scenes than Anthony Mackie . Sam Wilson recently released an official set photo , revealing the film’s new title; it was previously titled New World Order .
As we know, the plot will take place in a post- Avengers world , as the team no longer exists. The release is expected on May 3, 2024 . We will keep you posted.
