Or maybe they're worried a character like that might offend the Russians. Kind of a shame because I don't really see the Winter Soldier, Crossbones or Batroc as major puppeteers type villains, more like goons.
I think the cold war angle will be only brushed briefly.
On the other hand, I do wonder if Alexander Lukin is going to turn out to be the true identity of Alexander Pierce. Perhaps Lukin spent decades as an agent of SHIELD while secretly having an agenda of his own.
