Just tell me when you want me to show up. Besides, let me know nothing. I don’t care.”
Russell did confirm that he hasn’t received a phone call from someone at Marvel Studios asking him to return as a US Agent. “No, I’m just waiting,” he said. “You wait until, like, they announce it. They keep it really, really tight, and it’s like, you respect that because they have another bottom line to watch out for than what they thought I needed to know.” Russell added that he hoped that when Marvel asked him to put on a spare outfit, they would give him enough time to hit the gym, with the actor explaining that at the moment he “[doesn’t] looks like John Walker.”
