Rosa Salazar (Alita: Battlestar, Maze Runner) has reportedly joined the cast of Marvel Studios Captain America: New World Order.
The news comes from Murphy’s Multiverse which shares with confidence that the actress will be playing a member of the Serpent Society known as Diamondback. Seth Rollins, aka WWE Superstar Seth Freakin Rollins, is also rumored to play one of the members of the Serpent Society.
Murphy further points out that The Serpent Society’s role in the film is unclear but in the comics, they’ve served as antagonists to Captain America more than once. As for Salazar’s Diamondback, her history with Captain America is a little more complicated.
Though a member of a criminal organization, Diamondback once dated Steve Rogers so her presence in the film could mean interesting things on the horizon for Sam Wilson.
