THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER Promo Poster Reveals A First Look At The Villainous "Flag Smashers"

Some newly released promo art for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier reveals a first look at a reimagined version of Flag Smasher, and it's clear now Marvel Studios is putting a unique spin on the villain.

Earlier today, we shared some new promo art from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier with you. There's some great stuff there, but by far the biggest reveal can be found below. 

Baron Zemo is going to be the show's big bad, but we've known for a while now that other villains will be part of the Disney+ TV series. Flag-Smasher looks set to be among them, but it appears he will be reinvented as a femal character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe...and possibly as an entire team!

In the comics, Karl Morgenthau witnessed his father get trampled to death at the Latverian Embassy, and responded by embarking on a mission to eliminate nationalism by destroying the world's nations. Becoming Flag-Smasher, he formed ULTIMATUM, and was essentially a terrorist.

Looking at the hair, we're willing to bet that the masked character below is being played by Erin Kellyman. Chances are she's the leader of the "Flag Smashers," a group who could potentially be the female team of villains we've seen fighting the new Captain America in set photos and videos. Whether this debunks theories that she's also Songbird obviously remains to be seen. 

It's not surprising that Marvel Studios is reinventing one of Captain America's more obscure villains, and it will be interesting to see what led to their formation following the events of Avengers: Endgame.

For now, take a look at this new promo art for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier below:
