Eli Bradley’s MCU future is surely marked out? Whilst we only saw small glimpses of young Bradley in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, it seems crazy to think that the character won’t become Patriot further down the line. A Young Avengers project has been heavily rumored for some time and Marvel has been quietly assembling a roster of young potentials. WandaVision saw Wiccan and Speed introduced to the MCU, and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier introduced Eli Bradley, Grandson of former Super Soldier Isiah Bradley.
There is also more to come with Kate Bishop debuting in Hawkeye and rumors around Cassie Lang taking on the family business. Not only that but there could be a kid Loki who appears in the upcoming Loki show. Then, we have shows coming for both Ms. Marvel and Ironheart. So you betcha Eli Bradley’s MCU future is being mapped out. Elijah Richardson who plays Bradley teased fans a little on Instagram when he shared an image of him with Carl Lumbly, aka Isiah. You can catch that Here. However the caption read as follows.
“The Falcon And The Winter Soldier Finale. Watch a young king at work. This may only be the beginning of Eli Bradley!”
Of course, as we recently learned from another star of the same show, Wyatt Russell who plays John Walker. No decisions are made by Marvel until they gauge audience reaction. However, the positive reactions for Russell and the desire to see more of Bradley from fans will likely have made Marvel’s mind up by now. Speaking with Vanity Fair Russell said,
“Marvel operates in a really cool way where they don’t make decisions before they see what works. I’m not a part of any of this decision making, obviously.”
I’m pretty sure that we will be seeing more of Russell and Richardson in the MCU going forward. What do you think of Eli Bradley’s future in the MCU? Would you want to see the young actor become Patriot, and does he got his Granddaddies super strength? Leave any thoughts below.
