Though Falcon and The Winter Soldier completed principal photography last week we’re still hearing about further additions to the series cast.
Deadline is reporting that former Alias and Supergirl star Carl Lumbly has joined the cast. Details on his role haven’t been revealed but he is strongly rumoured to be playing Isaiah Bradley, aka the “Black Captain America.”
In Marvel Comics history, Bradley was an early experiment of the United States’ Super-Soldier program (codenamed Project: Rebirth) during World War II, and also took up the shield as an alternate version of Cap.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is set to debut on Disney+ in August 2020. The six-part limited series will be directed by Kari Skogland and stars Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes. Emily VanCamp returns as Sharon Carter alongside Daniel Brühl as Baron Zemo, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker/USAgent.
