Now that Disney+'s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier stars Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes aka Winter Soldier) and Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson aka Falcon) are done playing cupid for the fans (that will make much more sense if you click here), looks like they'll have time to welcome actor Carl Lumbly (Supergirl, Alias) to the series. Having recently spent time in The CW's DCU via Supergirl and his recurring role as J'onn J'onzz's (aka the Martian Manhunter) father, Lumbly will be joining Marvel's streaming universe in a role whose details are being kept under wraps.
Directed by Kari Skogland, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier stars Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes aka Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson aka Falcon) returning to their feature film roles, alongside Emily VanCamp (SHIELD agent Sharon Carter), Daniel Bruhl (Baron Zemo), Wyatt Russell (John Walker aka US Agent), Desmond Chiam (Now Apocalypse), and Miki Ishikawa (The Terror: Infamy). Noah Mills (The Enemy Within, The Brave) was recently cast in an undisclosed role.
In early November 2019, Stan and Mackie had some great news to share with fans, taking to Marvel Studios' Instagram account to post a "story" announcing that production on the streaming series was officially underway. Following that, Mackie jumped on Twitter to make it "uber-official" with a shot of their respective on-set director's chairs.
