According to the latest Barside Buzz, Rosa Salazar has been cast in Captain America: New World Order as the leader of The Serpent Society, the villains of the movie. The rumor comes from Murphy’s Multiverse. Although, I also saw it was backed up by One Take News and MTTSH afterwards. Either way. Murphy is a good source for legit details like this.
Some recent set photos showed that WWE star Seth Rollins was playing a member of the Serpent Society. However, it could not be seen form the images who another role was. Now, Murphy says this is Salazar and she is playing the Serpent Society’s leader code-named Diamondback.
Murphy’s Multiverse can share that Alita: Battlestar and Maze Runner actress Rosa Salazar as the actress who joined Rollins on set as Diamondback. While Salazar’s reps did not respond to inquiries about her status on the project, we are confident that she is attached to it.
The thing is, are the Serpent Society really the villains of New World Order. Considering we have President Ross, Val, and The Leader in the mix, are the SS just one component? Is the movie going to follow a similar formula to Falcon and the Winter Soldier with the SS being the Flagsmashers? I certainly hope not, as they were terrible villains. There’s also the fact that in the comics, Diamondback and Steve Rogers had a complicated relationship. They fought as mortal enemies, and of course they also dated. Just comic books stuff, happens all the time.

I’d like to say we have a fair idea of what is going to happen in New World Order. However, we really only have some vague rumors. Or, if anyone does know for sure, they ain’t talking. What we think in terms of rumors so far is that the Celestial now stuck and dead on Earth has left some presents. It seems the Serpent Society have made a home there. Then we add in the fact that it seems the key present left behind is Adamantium.
Of course Adamantium is the metal which is even stronger than Vibranium. As you likely already know, Adamantium was used to cover the skeleton of Wolverine in the comics and movies. Oh, and Sam is supposed to be trying to get an Avengers team together through all this. How that all equates to plot, I can’t say? However, we have heard the President Ross and the US are after that Adamantium. Mix all that together and you have a movie, maybe?
What do you think of the Barside Buzz that Rosa Salazar has been cast in Captain America: New World Order as the leader of The Serpent Society? Thoughts below as always.
