According to Inverse The Falcon And The Winter Soldier remains in delay limbo on Disney+, leaving more time for fans to speculate and theorize about the show’s story ahead of its eventual release date. It has a good number of actors announced, but only a handful of characters. Fortunately, Charles Murphy of Murphy’s Multiverse has a compelling idea for a comics villain who could face off against Bucky and Sam and potentially challenge Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on the large screen.
Murphy’s guess brings upon a bit of background info: the one confirmed falcon and winter soldier role we know about is Wyatt Russell as John Walker, also known as US Agent. However, the character seemingly ties the series to one particular era of Captain America comics, helmed by Mark Gruenwald.
So, if Gruenwald’s ten-year run on the comics from 1995 is indeed the inspiration for this series, there’s no glaring absence from the speculation of the cast. Power Broker was a mysterious villain connected to a powerful conglomerate known only as The Corporation. It is also known Curtiss Jackson, his skills were not that powerful but it’s manipulative.

The power Broker was in the enterprise of augmentation, specifically giving superpowers to mere mortals for the correct price. But unfortunately, it wasn’t an exact science, and often these creations backfire. Thus, consider how the Falcon and the winter soldier will likely result in the creation of a new Captain America, the topic of giving someone superpowers through a process seems apt. So it would be a wasted opportunity to not make use of a fearsome corporate villain.
Moreover, there is evidence that shows he won’t appear. There are no new names apart from John Walker’s have been revealed and the returning names are much, starting from Peggy Carter’s great-niece Sharon Carter to General Zemo. However, they may not be needed for another villain, but there could be greater aspirate in mind for Curtiss Jackson.

If the augmented character and the shady Corporation behind him were introduced, it could pose a monolithic enemy for the Avengers, one with pure business intentions.
However, the corporation is arranged crime at it’s most organized, and Power Broker himself is the CEO of their Western division. This type of villain isn’t the first guy you will think of for the next major Avengers baddies, but maybe it’s that very purpose why he should be the newest antagonist.
