Veteran actor Carl Lumbly has joined the cast of the upcoming Disney+ series The Falcon and Winter Soldier, according to Deadline. The series is well into filming at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. It is expected to be released on the streaming service in August.
Lumbly is no stranger to the superhero genre. From 2017–18, he appeared in several episodes of the CW’s Supergirl as the father of J’onn J’onzz, also known as Martian Manhunter. Funny enough Lumbly also provided the voice of Martian Manhunter in the Justice League animated series from 2001-04. His resume also includes roles in Alias, This Is Us, Men of Honor, Doctor Sleep and Altered Carbon.
Deadline doesn’t give any specifics on who Lumbly will play. It does speculate on who, however:
“Lumbly’s role has not disclosed but Marvel fans will immediately pounce on the possibility that the veteran actor could be playing Isiah Bradley, aka the “black Captain America.”Deadline
Until August, we will have to wait and see who he is playing.
