Writer Malcolm Spellman teased last month that there would be a surprise character in the latest episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which was revealed to be none other than Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, played by Emmy award-winning actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus. In just one scene, Valentina spoke to Wyatt Russell's John Walker about the people now interested in him.

Fans have speculated on exactly what her role will be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward, as Marvel Studios apparently has “even bigger ambitions” for the character; apparently, Julia Louis-Dreyfus “will be cropping up in the MCU for some time to come.” 

One can only wonder what exactly Valentina's plans may be or what was on that business card she gave to Mrs. Walker.

Well, Louis-Dreyfus decided to show fans what was on it herself.


After her surprise appearance in the latest episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, “Truth,” Julia Louis-Dreyfus posted on her Twitter account the business card her character Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine had given to John Walker's wife.

Unsurprisingly, Valentina's business card doesn't list her company or employer. All it has is Valentina's name and, hidden behind Louis-Dreyfus's finger, her phone number for John Walker to call.

It's funny that Valentina has business cards on hand like this, which only further implies her meeting other individuals like Walker for who knows what.

At the moment, most fans believe Valentina's intentions are either the formation of The Thunderbolts or another team of government-sanctioned Avengers. Fans won't know for sure what the future holds for John Walker or the mysterious Valentina until the final episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier airs on April 23, 2021.
