'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier': Who Is the Power Broker?

  'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier': Who Is the Power Broker? (This article contains spoilers for the second episode of the Marvel Disney+ series "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier") It was interesting to realize that at the end of the second episode "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier," it's still extremely unclear what the overall plot is. That's not a bad thing — Sam and Bucky have a mystery they're trying to solve. And that mystery expanded greatly this week with the introduction of a new player: The Power Broker.

Julia Louis - Dreyfus just revealed on social media how Marvel was able to keep her role a secret in The Falcon And The Winter Soldier . Now that the show just ended viewers have been discussing all of their favorite twists and turns and unexpected characters that appeared . Of course, Marvel is well known for keeping their secrets and swearing their actors to secrecy . Most famously, during the filming of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, actors were given either partial scripts, heavily redacted scripts, or fake scripts entirely just to keep the movies' secrets .

Julia Louis - Dreyfus . When you’re a well known actor with a cameo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe , keeping it a secret can be challenging. Pictures from sets leak all the time, even when those sets are supposedly secure. Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine talks to John Walker and his wife in Falcon and the Winter Soldier . Marvel Studios. Though the cloak doesn’t look especially comfortable—it’ s definitely not made for lounging—I rather hope Louis - Dreyfus wears it every day. Overall, she seems happy to be part of the MCU.

We can't lie … we're impressed

One of the most surprising introductions into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in recent memory came in the fifth episode of Disney+'s "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier," when Julia Louis-Dreyfus showed up as the mysterious Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.

The most impressive part of her appearance is that it was a genuine shock when she showed up to pick up the ruins of John Walker's (Wyatt Russell) shattered ego in the wake of his firing as Captain America. Now that the season is over, Louis-Dreyfus let us know how they were able to keep her role a secret.

  'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier': Steve Rogers Really Screwed Sharon Over (This article contains spoilers for the third episode of the Marvel series "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier") It's always interesting to see the Marvel Cinematic Universe deconstruct itself, and that's something that "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" — and the "Captain America" movies before it — have been doing a lot of. Learning in the series premiere that members of the Avengers, like, don't pull a salary or benefits, for example. Or back in "Captain America: Civil War" when everybody had to deal with the fallout of the immense destruction they were party to during the battle with Ultron.

— Julia Louis - Dreyfus (@OfficialJLD) April 23, 2021. The actor shared a video of the crew tucking her and her quite high hairdo into the black cloak. It does a heck of a job obscuring her identity. Louis - Dreyfus wears large sunglasses too, but still… I think she’ s fairly recognizable. And it’ s a character who could have lasting power in the MCU. Given her interaction with John Walker in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier finale, we don’t think we’ve seen the last of her. In her comics history (which you can read about more here ), Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (do not call her Val)

Louis - Dreyfus shared the video in question to her personal Twitter account. In it, she is seen donning a long, black cloak that wouldn't look out of place in a Star Wars film. "They snuck me onto set every day in this stunning hooded cloak," the actor wrote. "I have worn it every day since. Obviously." However, this changed when delays pushed Black Widow' s premiere to after the release of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier . It is currently unclear if Valentina will still appear in Black Widow, though at any rate, the film is scheduled to hit theaters on July 9. It will also be the first Marvel Studios film to premiere on

"They snuck me onto set every day in this stunning hooded cloak. I have worn it every day since. Obviously," Louis-Dreyfus wrote on her Twitter account Friday.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus' character figures to have a pretty important role going forward, as she's seen by the end of "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" not only refashioning Walker into U.S. Agent but apparently building a team of her own. In the comics, where she's also known as Madam Hydra, de Fontaine is kind of like a bizarro-world version of Nick Fury.

Valentina Allegra de Fontaine was created by writer-artist Jim Steranko, best known for his celebrated late '60s run on the Marvel Comics series "Strange Tales," soon retitled as "Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D." Valentina first showed up in "Strange Tales" #159 in 1967, just before the renaming.

  'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier': What Are the Flag Smashers Actually Trying to Do? (This article contains some spoilers for the fourth episode of the Marvel series "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier," "The Whole World Is Watching." With just two episodes of "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" left, the series is starting to make its way toward tying up loose ends. The super soldier serum has seemingly been taken care of, Sam and Bucky are coming together as a true team, and the concept of heroism is being reevaluated — but there's still a wild card in the mix. Though we got a bit more story on how Karli Morgenthau and her comrades came together, the Flag Smashers are still this unpredictable force.

The finale of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier debuts this weekend, bringing an end to an action-packed and genuinely surprising Marvel Studios adventure. The Disney+ series has introduced a number on interesting characters while showcasing the journey of Sam Wilson/The Falcon (Anthony The newest and most unexpected face arrived in the series' fifth episode, when Emmy winner Julia Louis - Dreyfus made a surprise appearance as Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, a fan-favorite character who becomes Madame Hydra in the comics. The arrival of Valentina was definitely

Eleven-Primetime Emmy winner Julia Louis - Dreyfus made her Marvel debut as the enigmatic Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, appearing to the recently cancelled Captain America John Walker as potentially a saving grace to resurrecting his fallen superhero career. She was also a love interest of Nick Fury’ s at one point. It’ s plausible she could be grooming Walker for work with Fury on Disney+’ s upcoming Secret Invasion. Falcon and the Winter Soldier EP Malcolm Spellman also reportedly hinted that he’d like to see Contessa (who he didn’t specifically name) pairing with Thor.

In the comics, Valentina is an Italian jet setter who joined S.H.I.E.L.D. in an attempt to honor her parents, who apparently died during World War II fighting in "the resistance." She rose quickly through the ranks however, eventually became the leader of an all-female team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents called Femme Force, and also had an off-again, on-again romantic relationship with Nick Fury. (There's much more about her character here.)
