Eli Bradley Actor Elijah Richardson Reacts to Captain America 4 Rumors
Eli Bradley actor Elijah Richardson has responded to rumors he will appear Captain America 4.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier served as a bit of an origin story for Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and his acceptance to take over the mantle from Captain America after Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) passed the shield on to him at the end of Avengers: Endgame. In the series, he meets Isaiah Bradley (Carl Lumbly), who served in the Korean War and was a black supersoldier who was experimented on for 30 years. Since his story was hidden from the public, it impacted him and his family, including his grandson Eli Bradley (Elijah Richardson).
Given Eli Bradley’s appearance on the show, some have speculated that it would lead to an appearance in Captain America 4, which will feature Sam Wilson in his cinematic debut as the successor to Steve Rogers. While promoting Disney Plus’ hollywood star girl, Elijah Richardson was asked about the possibility of returning to the MCU, to which he replied, “No comment,” but with a smile for the camera.
Will Elijah Richardson play Patriot?
In the comics, Eli Bradley eventually becomes Patriot, a member of the Young Avengers. Since the MCU has recently introduced a slew of new, younger characters, some have predicted that this specific team will be reunited in the near future. Regarding a possible appearance in Captain America 4, it would make perfect sense for Elijah Richardson to appear, especially as a tribute to Isaiah Bradley.
Elijah Richardson made his MCU debut as Eli Bradley in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Here is the synopsis:
After the events of “Avengers: Endgame,” Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) team up on a global adventure that tests their abilities and patience in Marvel Studios’ “The Falcon.” and The Winter Soldier.
