Marvel is currently shooting three Disney+ series in Atlanta, Georgia and Deadline is reporting a new brand casting addition to one of them.
Veteran character actor Carl Lumbly (Supergirl, Alias) has joined the cast of The Falcon & The Winter Soldier in an undisclosed role, which the outlet mentions fans might speculate could be Isaiah Bradley (the black Captain America) and then continue to detail the character’s history.
A clear sign they might believe the role is Bradley.
There is a possibility that he could be a direct entry point to introduce Young Avenger member Elijah Bradley aka Patriot, the grandson of Isaiah.
Considering all the hype surrounding other shows introducing Young Avengers members, The Falcon & The Winter Soldier adding their own wouldn’t be a stretch.
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) team up in a global adventure that tests their abilities—and their patience—in Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. The series also welcomes the return of Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter and Daniel Brühl as the villain, Zemo, plus the addition of Wyatt Russell who will be playing John Walker, a character that most comic book fans will recognize. The all-new series is directed by Kari Skogland; Malcolm Spellman is the head writer.
Disney has confirmed they plan on beginning to air the series starting in August.
