In The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the MCU’s new Captain America wears a pair of handcuffs, although his predecessor did not. This is why.
Although Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) never needed them, the MCU’s new Captain America (Wyatt Russell) wears a pair of handcuffs with him in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which itself is a reference to the comic and toy versions of the character. The handcuffs add another difference between the way Steve Rogers and John Walker operate in the field.
With John Walker, the MCU now has a new Sentinel of Liberty. The person wielding the shield could have been Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), but his decision to renounce him allowed the United States to choose its own Captain America. Since taking command, Walker has been on missions with his partner, Lemar Hoskins, also known as Battlestar (Clé Bennet). On The Falcon and the Winter SoldierWalker and Battlestar’s main objective has been to track down the terrorist organization known as Flag-Smashers and its leader, Karli Morgenthau (Erin Kellyman).

On the way to Mama Donya’s funeral in episode 4, Walker took out a pair of handcuffs and used them to chain Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl). While Captain America’s handcuffs were sold as toys between the 1970s and 1990s, this is not a tool that Steve carried with him on a regular basis. That’s because there is a key distinction between these two versions of Captain America in both the MCU and the comics. Steve was a superhero who fought for the people, while Walker acts more like an agent of the United States government, in particular, the United States Agent.
This represents one of the fundamental qualities that distinguishes John Walker from his predecessor. Unlike most superheroes in the MCU who act with some degree of independence, John Walker fights crime on the federal government payroll and has superiors whom he will presumably have to answer to. In a sense, Walker is less of a superhero and more of a “super cop.” Use your position and authority to arrest criminals and issue orders. That contrasts with what the original Captain America did.
In the comics, government officials were often angry at Steve for not following through on their wishes, but Steve felt that being Captain America didn’t mean he was in their debt in any way. Steve no longer saw himself as a soldier, but as a symbol of something greater: freedom. He felt that following orders again would be a “treason”Of his ideals. Steve from the MCU decides to do what he thought was right (and not what he was told to do) in Captain America: Civil War He illustrated that he shares the same principles. Clearly, The Falcon and the Winter SoldierJohn Walker is a different kind of Captain America, and that becomes more and more apparent as the series progresses. He did what could be irreparable damage to Steve’s legacy when he brutally killed a Flag-Smasher in front of numerous onlookers. Walker formally lost his shield and all of his responsibilities as Captain America are now on display.
