The Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to grow a lot this year with the release of the first two series on Disney +, ‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ and ‘WandaVision’, and the 2020 films, ‘Black Widow’ and ‘Eternals’. A full year is coming – although not as much as 2021 will be.
The first series that we can see is’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier ‘, and it will be the first thing we see of the fourth phase of the Marvel Universe set after the events of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, since ‘Black Widow’will be located between ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War’.
At the end of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, we leave these characters saying goodbye to old Steve Rogers ( Chris Evans ), a final scene in which Capi delivers his shield to Falcon ( Anthony Mackie ) before Bucky’s ( Sebastian Stan ) watchful eye, so there is curiosity to know what will happen to these characters now.
An old-new Captain America?
According to ComicBook, the last thing known about the series is that Carl Lumbly has joined the cast in an unknown role, this has blown the alarms of the fans. Many say he could play Isaiah Bradley, a black Captain America much loved in the comics. Its origin dates back to World War II when the government tested the serum, which they would later give Steve Rogers, in black soldiers. Isaiah Bradley was one of the first men to be tested and the only one who survived.
Anthony Mackie, who plays Falcon, said a year ago that he would love to see this story adapted. “I think it is very interesting to think that these soldiers took and tested the serum on them before injecting it to Capi. Actually, the way it was written is really beautiful and describes the United States in a very specific way in that period and describes it in a true and honest way. “
We’ll see if this becomes a reality in August 2020. It would really make sense as a possible plot for Sam Wilson, who would be reluctant to accept the shield and look like the new Captain America until he knew the story of Isaiah Bradley.
