Following yesterday's first glimpse of Giancarlo Esposito in-costume on the set of Captain America: Brave New World, we have a new photo giving us a look at Rosa Salazar (Alita: Battle Angel) as Rachel Leighton, aka Diamondback.

A previous rumor claimed that the supervillain group known as the Serpent Society had actually been completely cut from the movie during reshoots. This may have been accurate at the time, but this latest round of additional photography has revealed that at least one member of the team will still feature.

As you can see, Salazar is now sporting the character's signature hot pink hair after previously appearing with blonde locks in a photo shared online last year.

The Serpent Society (assuming they all still appear) will also consist of Rattler, Constrictor, Asp, and Cobra.

According to an earlier report, Diamondback will utilize "diamond spike tattoos on her hands to shoot projectiles from her fingers. Rattler "generates sonic booms from his legs, creating disruptive vibrations." Constrictor "employs charged coils on his arms to constrict and immobilize foes." Asp's "fire fists illuminate combat with a fiery advantage," and Cobra (played by Seth Rollins) has "retractable fangs, capable of spitting corrosive acid."

In related news, scooper MTTSH has reiterated a previous rumor that the plot of Brave New World will revolve around the Celestial that was frozen in place towards the end of Eternals.

The first official stills from the movie were released a couple of weeks back, featuring Anthony Mackie as the returning Sam Wilson equipped with Steve Rogers' iconic vibranium shield, and our new Sentinel of Liberty meeting Ross, who will task Wilson with reforming The Avengers.

In the footage that screened at CinemaCon last month, Ross welcomes Wilson to the White House to commend him on his past heroism, but chaos soon ensues when music plays and activates some sleeper agent assassins, including Carl Lumbly's Isaiah Bradley, attempt to take out the President.

"It made more sense for it to be more of a grounded espionage action movie as opposed to aliens and airplanes coming through portals and sh*t," Mackie told EW. "Even though I've been in so many of them and have seen it all now, the opportunity for Sam to really establish himself as a true action star and Avenger comes with this movie."

"This movie is a clear reset," he adds. It really re-establishes the idea of what this universe is and what this universe is going to be. I think with these movies, you're getting a clear, new branding of what Marvel is headed towards the same way they did with Captain America: The Winter Soldier."

Joining Mackie and Ford will be Danny Ramirez as the new Falcon, Shira Haas as Israeli superheroine Sabra, Liv Tyler as Betty Ross, and Tim Blake Nelson as The Leader.

Specific plot details are still under wraps, but rumor has it the story will see Samuel Sterns revealed as the "secret benefactor" behind the Serpent Society. What this will entail is not clear, but we assume he'll be funding the group and possibly providing them with tech.

Captain America: Brave New World is set to arrive in theaters on February 14, 2025.

Is that why all those radical lefty goofballs wear those rainbow flag garments?

@harryba11zack - meme is inaccurate through omission, it’s specifically to discourage predatory animals that might try to devour them. And not always true either because certain birds use bright colors to attract mates

Ok, now I'm even more convinced Esposito is playing Cutthroat since he's Diamondback's brother in the comics.

@soberchimera - think age-wise, it would make more sense for them to be father and daughter. Which I guess isn't new, since they already were in Maze Runner.

Cutthroat showing up would be an interesting connection to Winter Soldier and Civil War though, even if I don't think Crossbones had many to interact with

soberchimera - 6/2/2024, 11:27 AM
@bkmeijer1 - True, another possibility could be Sidewinder so they can properly use the Serpent Society as the main villains in a future movie, but the fact that he uses blades is pushing me more towards Cutthroat.

@soberchimera - I'm not that familiar with all Serpent Society characters, but I kinda always saw them as a joke. Don't think they have long run potential.

That said, I could see Esposito's character be one of them in an overhauled way. Kinda like how Crossbones was completely different in The Winter Soldier.

@bkmeijer1 - They were major players in the Gruenwald's Cap run in the 80s and 90s, I think they could at the very least be the villains of one Cap film especially if they've been cut from this movie.

bkmeijer1 - 6/2/2024, 12:05 PM
@soberchimera - I remember the fake announcement for Civil War and thought it could've worked if they actually went with that.

Just like the Wrecking Crew, they could be a recurring group though. I don't see it happening, in favor of other villains in the relatively few projects (compared to the comics) Marvel puts out

soberchimera - 6/2/2024, 12:27 PM
@bkmeijer1 - Wrecking Crew got done dirty in She-Hulk......They could have used them in Thor 5, but now they've been wasted.
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 6/2/2024, 4:57 PM
@soberchimera - exactly. But I kinda expect how villain teams like that will be used again and again. There isn't really room for having the return frequently I think

@bkmeijer1 - Serpent Society wasn't a totally fake announcement from Disney. It was the original concept being worked on because they were pretty sure they couldn't get RDJ to do CW since it exceeded the amount of films he was contracted for. Therefore, they weren't going to do CW at all. Word was they were pretty far into the Serpent plot when someone manned up and mentioned CW to RDJ who said yes immediately and worked it in.

bkmeijer1 - 6/3/2024, 6:27 AM
@AlexGSpeaks - makes sense that had to get RDJ on board with Serpent Society just in case. Still think the announcement itself was pretty entertaining

I thought the fans were so smart? When has the MCU told linear stories? Y’all swore they forgot about the celestial and it’s only been a few movies 😂

I see why the MCU has to dumb it down and force feed yall cameo movies.

@YouFlopped - "More of a grounded espionage action movie as opposed to aliens and airplanes coming through portals and sh*t"

"The giant celestial in the ocean is the main plot for CAPTAIN AMERICA: BRAVE NEW WORLD"

🤔

@YouFlopped - I think part of the reason people are like "Its taking foreveeeeeeeeeer for Marvel to solve x plot thread" is due to the fact there are more projects now, so it feels like its taking forever or they thought with the increase of proejcts, that would've speed up the process of solving a movie previous plot threard

Like really it took 4 years for the Thor 2 cliffhanger to be solved, but nobody complained, but i think that is cause we didn't had like 15 projects in-between, so to many it felt like we got back to Thor fairly quickly.

@YouFlopped - I love how you consistently blast “cameo movies”. Such a weird soapbox to preach from. No one cares dude. You haven’t convinced a single person not to see D&W, in fact, you’ve probably galvanized them to see it even more. Go watch Madame Web again.
YouFlopped
YouFlopped - 6/2/2024, 2:38 PM
@marvel72 - and they are bringing back the leader after how many years?

there is no timetable for specific plot points.

@UncleHarm1 - what does that quote have to do with my original statement regarding marvel not telling linear stories?

Isn’t the celestial stuck… on earth? haven’t the events of TFAWS and Wakanda Forever shown us that America is taking an even more direct approach to geopolitical issues for more control since the power vacuum after endgame? that celestial is a GLOBAL issue not a space one 😂

like i said in my post, your comment SOUNDS smart. But really isn’t. Thanks for proving my point ❤️

looks like someone took my comment personal. are you one of those people excited for DP3? ❤️

im sure they are more focused on the GA and those tickets that have yet to sell out 😂

I’ll be watching it on YouTube no worries brother ❤️❤️❤️

@YouFlopped - someone agreeing doesn't change anything. Miss me with the bandwagon fallacy.

I wonder how my answer to your question fits with your presumptions. Before I do, what do you think?

bkmeijer1 - 6/2/2024, 11:22 AM
If I didn't knew what she looks like in the comics, I would've thought this was just a regular Millenial. Also, I had no idea Rosa Salazar was in this.

Also, wasn't Tiamut already part of Thunderbolts. These scoopers probably don't know either.

All these villains

Serpent society
Red hulk
The leader
Whomever the heck Gus is

They could sell a lot of toys if they market this right. Some people think that's a bad thing but man i grew up on action figurines. If i were a kid, I'd totally collect all the members of the serpent society just like I did cobra toys for g.i. joe
