(This article contains spoilers for “The Whole World Is Watching,” the fourth episode of the Marvel Disney+ series “The Falcon and Winter Soldier”) John Walker (Wyatt Russell), aka the new Captain America, showed us his true self on “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” this week — in more ways than one. The new Cap has struggled to feel like he belongs in a world full of gods and aliens and super soldiers, and for good reason. He’s just a regular soldier the U.S. government decided to name the new Captain America without consulting so far as we know with any current MCU heroes. He hasn’t been trained to fight these battles, so of course he’s going to get whooped. Also Read: 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier': Could Sharon Carter Be the Power Broker? And so we have this new Captain America, and he’s just trash at his job. He’s embarrassed, and certainly looks like he hasn’t been sleeping because of his frustration at being sidelined by actual heroes. There’s an easy remedy to this issue: Partner up with Sam and Bucky, and follow their lead. But this Toxic Masculinity Captain America can’t do that. He’s freaking Captain America. He’s supposed to be the lead. He can’t take orders from these…sidekicks. Even though they’re better than him at everything. Even though they’ve actually fought superhuman folks — and worse — before. Even though they have some idea how to operate freely like this, and John Walker doesn’t. The show is called “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” but this guy thinks it should be a Captain America show. For most of the episode, the new Captain America is just a huge clown, seething with rage about his numerous inadequacies. Like some kind of message board incel wondering when we’re finally gonna talk about MEN’s rights. Also Read: 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier': Steve Rogers Really Screwed Sharon Over And then he gets a hold of the final vial of super soldier serum. And he puts that stuff in his body. And he graduates to Captain Clown. Way back in “Captain America: The First Avenger,” the creator of the original super soldier serum, Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci), said that ‘the serum amplifies everything that is inside. So good becomes great — bad becomes worse.” Steve Rogers was a “good becomes great” kind of situation, and it looks like John Walker is the other one. It’s been kind of a strange arc for John on “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” He was originally presented as idealistic and excited to help people, but he so quickly went from that to being a tool without much of a devolution. He just was a good guy, and then he was yelling at the real superheroes for being so good at their jobs that they’re making him look bad. Also Read: Emily VanCamp Breaks Down 'Much More Cynical' Sharon Carter on 'Falcon and the Winter Soldier' But I like where we ended up. I like seeing this trash person angrily beat down bad guys because he just hates them so much, and then tarnish the uniform and the shield by beating a guy to death in front of a crowd of people to get revenge for his injured or dead partner. It’s disgusting and it felt so incredibly wrong, and it was also an absolute thrill to watch. I’d love for “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” to go all the way with this deconstruction by having Captain America just become a cartoonishly evil, one-note villain. Normally the MCU likes to humanize its bad guys too much to do that, but we just got Agatha on “WandaVision” taking that exact path. Agatha had no layers whatsoever and had no motivation other than to get more power. Why not do the same with New Cap? Read original story Incel Captain America Is So Perfect At TheWrap
“SNL” is back, now deep into its 46th season. The most recent new episode, which aired on April 3, was hosted by “Judas and the Black Messiah” star Daniel Kaluuya, with St. Vincent as the musical guest. The cold open sketch brought back a bit from earlier in the season in which Chloe Fineman’s Britney Spears has a talk show. Among her guests this time: Pete Davidson as Matt Gaetz, Chris Redd as Lil Nas X, Mikey Day as god and Kate McKinnon as Pepe LePew. Spoiler: Lil Nas X gave god a lap dance. It looks like, for now, cast member Alex Moffat will continue to play Joe Biden, as he played the role for a second time this past week in a sketch that also saw Martin Short make a surprise appearance as Kamala Harris’ husband, Doug Emhoff. Though Moffat’s reception has not been enthusiastic thus far, it’s likely that “SNL” will stick with him in the role for the rest of the season. Also Read: 'SNL': Lil Nas X Gives God an Easter Lap Dance (Video) This week, on Saturday, April 10, there WILL be a new episode of “SNL.” This week’s episode will be hosted by “A Promising Young Woman” star Carey Mulligan, with Kid Cudi as the musical guest. It’ll be Mulligan’s first time as host. And, as hard as it is to believe, it will also be Kid Cudi’s first time as the “SNL” musical guest. Though he did previously make an uncredited appearance during a Kanye West set on the show back in season 44. You can be pretty sure this season of “SNL” be pretty political for the full stretch. While it’s not an election year anymore, somehow the tense political situation in the U.S. managed to ramp up from the fever pitch early in 2021. And, well, it’s tough to pass up having Aidy Bryant play Ted Cruz as often as possible, which the show keeps doing. Perhaps the biggest splash of season 46 was the addition of Jim Carrey as the show’s resident celebrity Joe Biden during the election cycle. But Carrey dropped out of the role after Trump lost, and “SNL” has now twice had Moffat play the part. Moffat’s Biden has been met with a pretty tepid response both from the studio audience and viewers at home, but that’s to be expected after only big stars have played Biden on SNL for years. It’s been a strange transition out of the Trump era for “SNL,” which has adopted a softer tone the last couple months. For example, the show has done three separate COVID-19 game show sketches in 2021, two of which were cold open sketches. And Moffat’s Biden has only made a single appearance since the real Biden was inaugurated in January. Read original story Is There a New ‘SNL’ Episode Airing This Week? At TheWrap
