For the longest time, the MCU had a problem crafting memorable villains that could leave the audience behind. Later, the franchise got better at making its villain stand out, along with Eric Kilmonger, Thanos and Baron Zemo. Falcon and Winter Soldier Creates a new threat in the form of an army of superpowered creatures called “flag smashers”, who are committing acts of terrorism around the world.
Erin Kellyman, Who plays the role of Curly Morenthau of Flag Smashers, explained why his character chooses to go against the government. According to the actress, it all has to do with the snap of Thanos, who for five years removed half of the planet’s population, and the result of that incident, known as a “blip”.
“Those Who Left [after the blip] Came together and supported each other more because of the traumatic event – half the population disappeared – and borders were open, and people came together, and there was more unity. This is what he is trying to repeat again but this time with everyone. “

Based on Kellyman’s comments, it seems that the return of half of the planet’s population after five years was not without its own complexities, and there are at least some people who wish that after the way the mass disappears they would Go back No boundaries between countries.
Of course, this motivation behind the actions of the Flag Smashers is not an excuse for the actions of terrorism they put in the direct crosshairs of the Falcon, Winter Soldier, and the new Captain America, John Walker. In the previous episode, a run-way with the Flag Smashers cost Walker dearly, forcing him to try and kill one of Morgenthu’s comrades. While the outcome of that encounter will undoubtedly be a violent one, Kelliman currently believes his character’s preferences are beyond personal vengeance.
“She thinks she is fighting for people who are unheard and unseen, displaced people, so she is against what she is fighting. But at the same time, that is not her main focus. She has big priorities, And I think the main person is making sure. All that is affected by the blip is in safe and warm places and medical supplies and food to eat. “
