+ The Disney+ series has just hired Alias and Doctor Sleep actor Carl Lumbly. The role has not been disclosed but Marvel fans speculate on the possibility that the veteran actor could be playing Isaiah Bradley, aka the “first Captain America.”
+ Lumbly recently had a recurring role as the father of J’onn J’onzz, aka the Martian Manhunter, on The CW series Supergirl. It was a call back to his earlier voice work portraying the Martian Manhunter himself on the well-regarded Justice League animated series.
‘THE FALCON & WINTER SOLDIER’ will reportedly focus on Falcon refusing to take Captain America mantle.

+ Retconned into comic book continuity in 2003's Truth: Red, White & Black by the late Robert Morales and Kyle Baker, Isaiah Bradley was revealed to be part of Tuskegee-like experiments with the Super Soldier Serum following Steve Rogers' successful test, transforming him into Captain America. After working for a black ops U.S. Military group during World War II, Bradley went renegade with a stolen Captain America costume and shield and became a vigilante himself.
+ While it's not 100% certain that Lumbly is definitely playing Bradley, it's confirmed that the character is part of the show.
+ 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier' is filming its first season in Atlanta right now.
+ Sam Wilson has been considered the first Black Captain America since he first picked up Cap's shield in CAPTAIN AMERICA: SENTINEL OF LIBERTY (1998). However, the day I learned about Isaiah Bradley, my mind was changed forever. Bradley’s first appearance was in TRUTH: RED, WHITE AND BLACK (2003), a series written by the late Robert Morales and drawn by Kyle Baker. Since the story begins in the 1940s, canonically, Isaiah arrived first in the Earth-616 timeline.
