Carl Lumbly Joins The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Disney+ Series

According to Deadline, Doctor Sleep actor Carl Lumbly has joined the highly anticipated Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The actor’s character was not revealed, though the trade speculates he could be playing Isaiah Bradley, aka the black Captain America, a character introduced in the comics in 2003 that became “a tragic but noble culture symbol for African-American heroes within the Marvel Universe.”

The series is currently filming in Atlanta with an eye towards an August premiere date.

Lumbly is no stranger to superhero fare, having played the father of the Martian Manhunter in the CW series Supergirl. He also voiced Martian Manhunter in the Justice League animated series. He brings a huge resume that includes stints on shows such as This Is Us, NCIS: Los Angeles, Altered Carbon, Alias and Cagney & Lacy. He recently appeared as Dick Halloran in the critically acclaimed Doctor Sleep.

Neither character has appeared onscreen since 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

During the Marvel Studios panel at D23 Expo 2019, it was revealed that Wyatt Russell (Lodge 49Black Mirror) has joined the series for the role of Marvel Comics character U.S. Agent. Miki Ishikawa (The Terror: Infamy) and Desmond Chiam (Now Apocalypse) have also been cast for the series.
