Marvel producer Nate Moore has teased “natural sparks” between General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross and Sam Wilson following the events of Captain America: Civil War. In an interview with Collider, the producer confirmed that Antony Mackie, reprising his role as Sam Wilson – starring in his first solo film as the new Captain America, would be bringing “his own team to play.”
Wilson took up the mantle of Captain America in the Season 1 finale to The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and will clash with Ross in the Phase 5 closer. “Harrison Ford is taking on the role of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, and to see Sam Wilson and Thunderbolt Ross, which if you remember actually threw him in prison at the end of Civil War because he violated the Sokovia Accords.
“There’s going to be some natural sparks there, which I think are going to be really fun,” Moore continued. Moore added that Samuel Sterns would be returning to the MCU, describing Tim Blake Nelson, who last played the character in The Incredible Hulk, as “the best.”
Alongside Mackie, Ford, and Blake Nelson, Danny Ramirez, and Carl Lumbly will reprise their role as Joaquin Torres and Carl Lumbly, and Shira Haas will star as Sabra. Those unconfirmed include the likes of Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes, Wyatt Russell’s John Walker/U.S Agent, and Sharon Carter, who assumed the role of the Power Broker, a primary antagonist in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Captain America 4: New World Order is expected to arrive in cinemas on May 3, 2024, pending no further delays following Marvel’s recent reshuffle. The next film from the MCU to debut in cinemas will be Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
