During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, courtesy of a report from Gamesradar and details shared by Marvel, the title for Captain America 4 (Captain America: New World Order) was made official. The title was for only starters, as the panel further revealed the film had secured a release date: May 3, 2024.
The film recently secured a director in Julius Onah, best known for his work on The Cloverfield Paradox and The Girl Is In Trouble. Malcolm Spellman, the head writer for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, alongside Dalan Musson, will be writing the script.
New World Order is a continuation of the events established during the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with Anthony Mackie set to reprise his role as Sam Wilson – formerly the Falcon. In the season closer, Wilson took up the mantle of Cap’s shield after struggling with his mentor and friend’s legacy. Rogers appointed him as the new Cap by handing him the shield at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
For now – casting and plot details remain a mystery – and there’s no confirmation whether Sebastian Stan – who plays the Winter Soldier, will return for the fourth instalment. There’s no word on Chris Evans, who bowed out from the role of Captain America in 2019, making a return, and Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter.
It remains unclear when Captain America 4 will go into production. In November 2021, courtesy of Comic Book.com’s Phase Zero podcast, Nate Moore, the VP of Production and Development at Marvel Studios, described Mackie’s role as the new Cap as “the underdog in any situation.
“He’s not a super soldier. He’s not a hundred years old. He doesn’t have the Avengers. What happens with this guy who announces publicly kind of, without the support, ‘I’m new Captain America.’ What happens next? I think is fascinating because he’s a guy.” Moore adds.
