Marvel’s limited series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been a hit amongst fans new and old. Starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier aired its season finale on April 23 but there are rumors about a Captain America 4 film entering production.
Although several of the actors featured in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have a long history of working with Marvel, a few of the castmates were newcomers to the Marvel cinematic universe. One of the most shocking appearances on the show was Julia Louis-Dreyfus, a decorated actor with over a dozen industry awards.
Mackie maintains that he and the rest of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier cast had no idea that she was going to be a part of the show.
