A surprising Hulk connection has been spotted in brand new The Falcon and The Winter Soldier set photos.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is currently filming down in Georgia, where plenty of set photos of lead stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan have been taken. A bunch of new set photos from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier may look simple at first, but once you go deeper into them, you realize that the upcoming Disney Plus show may be just be tying itself into The Incredible Hulk.
The set photos in question from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier show a Samson Development sign. In case you don’t remember, Doc Samson is an iconic character in Hulk mythos. Beyond that, Leonard Samson was played by Ty Burrell in The Incredible Hulk in 2008. You can check out the set photo teasing the Hulk character below.

It appears that Samson Development is patching up buildings and the like in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier after everyone was snapped back to life. It’s certainly interesting that The Falcon and The Winter Soldier would lean into a character from The Incredible Hulk, a film that has been casually side-lined from the MCU zeitgeist. Ty Burrell’s Leonard Simpson briefly appeared in The Incredible Hulk, though his transformation into Doc Samson wasn’t teased. Since The Incredible Hulk, a considerable amount of time has passed, which means Ty Burrell’s Leonard Sampson could have expanded his portfolio. That being said, there’s no indication that The Incredible Hulk star will be reprising his role int he upcoming The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
