Falcon and the Winter Soldier
Set photos have been released of Wyatt Russell suited up as U.S. Agent in “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” TV series – the character seemingly sporting Captain America’s shield which is the same one Steve Rogers presented Sam Wilson with at the end of “Avengers: Endgame”.

That suggest rumors that the U.S. Government stops The Falcon from becoming the new Captain America and instead gives the shield to John Walker as the new Cap (at least initially). [Source: Page Six]
