With the second episode of Disney Plus and Marvel’s The Falcon and Winter Soldier out, we’ve got a better look at some of the major players outside our heroes. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has stepped up their game when it comes to writing their antagonists in the past few years. Fans have had a hard time completely writing off the motivations of characters like Eric Killmonger in Black Panther, Adrian Toomes (the Vulture) from Spider-Man, or even Thanos from the Infinity Saga.
That trend seems to be continuing with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as the characters who are based on Marvel villains are all being portrayed with at least a slice of sympathy. Here are all the characters so far who are being set up as antagonistic forces to Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, you be the judge which ones sound the most like villains in this Marvel Universe.
