The final episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier premiered on Disney+ last Friday. Episode 6 wrapped up a lot of the ongoing mysteries from the series but also left the door open for some exciting future projects.
Following the series finale, it was revealed that Marvel Studios are developing a Captain America 4 movie starring Anthony Mackie as the titular hero. There were also hints in “One World, One People” that Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter and Wyatt Russell’s John Walker/U.S. Agent will have larger roles to play in the future of the MCU.
Another member of the show’s cast has hinted that we will see more from his character in the future via a post on Instagram. Elijah Richardson played the role of Isaiah Bradley’s grandson, Elijah Bradley in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. His role in the series was limited to three episodes and he appeared as a supporting character, but his future in the MCU will likely be a lot more important.
In the comics, Eli Bradley is a member of the Young Avengers and goes by the superhero name of Patriot. In Richardson’s post, the actor shared four images from his appearances in the show, along with the following caption:
With Eli Bradley’s appearance in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, that brings the number of confirmed Young Avengers members in the MCU up to 6.
