Julia Louis-Dreyfus made her shock debut within the Marvel Cinematic Universe within the newest episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine (you may simply name her Val). Val confirmed up unexpectedly to make a imprecise however barely shady provide to John Walker after he’s stripped of his title as Captain America.
What ought to we count on from Val as we transfer in direction of the ultimate episode of the season? In keeping with Marvel Studios producer Nate Moore, Val is type of like Nick Fury with out all of the pesky dedication to justice.
“At any time when we talked about Valentina, even within the author’s room, she was type of a extra acerbic, funnier, however darker Nick Fury,” he told Marvel.com. “Somebody who is aware of her secrets and techniques, who’s not afraid to function within the ethical grey space, however perhaps who is not as inherently altruistic.”
Whereas we do not know precisely what to anticipate from Val transferring ahead, Moore’s feedback definitely appear to counsel she may play a bigger function within the MCU transferring ahead. Val has a wealthy historical past within the Marvel comics as a morally ambiguous agent of espionage, which is definitely an apt description of what we’ve seen of her thus far.
