Skrull Rhodey Returns in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Deleted Scene

A new deleted scene from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier brings back Skrull Rhodey before the reveal of his real identity in Secret Invasion. Col. James Rhodes had a special cameo in Phase 4’s second series. The deleted scene reveals that his cameo was supposed to be more extensive.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier deleted scene features Skrull Rhodey and Sam Wilson

Rhodey appeared in the first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier titled “New World Order.” He spoke to Sam Wilson about why Sam didn’t take on the mantle of Captain America after Steve Rogers specifically chose him. After hearing Sam’s answer, he bid farewell.

But an extended version of his exit has now been posted by IGN. It shows Sam and Rhodey pulling each other’s legs about who has the better way of flying. Following that, Wilson addresses that Rhodey has begun to move pretty well despite his injuries. The scene then ends with him apologizing for dodging Vision’s beam.

Watch it here:

When Sam Wilson asks about Rhodey’s condition, he replies that the upgraded procedure he went through allows him to move better than before. But following Secret Invasion, fans would know that Rhodes was lying in this scene. He could move perfectly because this was Skrull Rhodey pretending to be the real one.

Secret Invasion hinted that Rhodey was picked up by the Skrulls right after he was treated during the events of Captain America: Civil War. The ending of Secret Invasion revealed Rhodey in the same hospital gown he wore in Civil War.

Even Secret Invasion director Ali Selim confirmed this in an interview. Referring to the real Rhodey’s reveal in Secret Invasion’s Episode 6, he said:

“A lot of people have asked about, ‘Definitively, when did Rhodey…?’ I think his legs not working in the end of Episode six and him being in the hospital gown points to [‘Captain America: Civil War’].”

Hence, Sam Wilson was unknowingly speaking to Skrull Rhodey during his cameo in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
