During D23, Marvel Studios also revealed that Tim Blake Nelson will be returning to his role as the Leader in the upcoming film, and that Danny Ramirez would be reprising his role as Joaquin Torres in the movie.

Isaiah Bradley made his debut in comics in Truth: Red, White & Black #1, a 2003 limited series that revealed that Bradley was one of 300 Black men the United States government experimented on to try and recreate the super soldier serum that turned Steve Rogers into Captain America. Isaiah Bradley was created by Axel Alonso, Robert Morales, and Kyle Baker. Truth: Red, White & Black #1 was part of a 2003 limited series. Bradley winds up being the only participant in the experiment to survive, and he goes on to demolish a Nazi lab and a concentration camp. However, after this, he is arrested by the United States military for stealing one of Steven Rogers’ uniforms. He is later granted amnesty, but the United States government never recognizes him for the courageous service he had done. Elements of Truth: Red, White & Black were adapted for use in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. These elements include the experiments that gave Bradley his superpowers and the failure of the United States government to acknowledge the existence of Truth: Red, White & Black.
