Bucky Barnes actor Sebastian Stan has posted a photo on his Instagram account from the Atlanta set of The Falcon & The Winter Soldier featuring himself, Anthony Mackie, Wyatt Russell, and a fourth actor.
That fourth actor is Canadian actor Cle Bennett, who hadn’t been previously announced for the film and seemingly has a meaty enough role to be posing with the other male leads.
Some have assumed that he is playing Lemar Hoskins aka Battlestar, basically the Bucky Barnes to Wyatt’s U.S. Agent.
Bennett’s credits include The Man In The High Castle, The Tick, Homeland, and Jigsaw.
The show will tackle how Sam deals with taking over the Captain America mantle from Steve Rogers after the events of Avengers: Endgame along with other potential rivals and replacements.
Not to mention the return of Zemo and the introduction of the X-Men comics locale of Madripoor.
It’ll be interesting to see how the series will ultimately impact Phase Four and beyond, as there is an expectation the show will tee-up Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson taking over the Captain America films and could lead to him leading Captain America 4.
The Falcon & The Winter Soldier is set to begin airing on Disney+ starting in August.
