In recent weeks, several photos from the set of the upcoming The Falcon And the Winter Solider have given fans a tease of what’s to come from the first Marvel Studios show to premiere on Disney+. Now, thanks to another batch of images, a new character has been revealed.

Oduye is best known for starring in Academy Award-nominated films The Big Short and 12 Years a Slave. Earlier this year, the Nigerian-American actress appeared in Netflix’s When They See Us, based on the events of the 1989 Central Park jogger case.
At this point, it’s unclear who Oduye is playing in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but according to Murphy, she will be someone close to Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson. Given that the series will focus on Wilson and Bucky Barnes’ backstories, she could be anyone from his sister, Sarah Wilson, to his girlfriend, Leila Taylor.
