What We Know So Far About The Marvel Movie Captain America: New World Order

What We Know So Far About The Marvel Movie Captain America: New World Order ...

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a Marvel Disney+ series, came to an end in April 2021, which raised serious doubts about the show's future and Anthony Mackies' role as Captain America. Since then, there has been a great deal of speculation and a sprinkle of news surrounding Captain America 4.

Over the years, more and more information has been provided regarding the script, the filmmaker, and the return of Sam Wilson. That all changed at the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con, when Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige announced some exciting MCU plans, including what has since been renamed Captain America: New World Order.

If you want to know more about this exciting Marvel Phase 5 project, including its release date, information on the creative team that is bringing it to life, and other details, please keep reading, as we'll be breaking it down right now.

Captain America: New World Order will premiere on May 3, 2024.

Deadline swooped in with one of the year's biggest superhero film scoops when it announced that Captain America 4 would be launched on the Hall H stage in 2022, not only with the new and official title Captain America: New World Order, but also with further information about the film's identity, which further heightened the excitement.

Anthony Mackie is set to reprise his role as Captain America.

Mackie was first introduced as Sam Wilson and became one of Steve Rogers' closest friends and best friends in the critically-acclaimed Captain America: The Winter Soldier in May 2024. Talk about a ten-decade relationship for Mackie and his most famous character, who developed from a sidekick to the star of his own film.

Mackie came to an agreement to star in what was still called at the time Captain America 4, which was officially released in August 2021, according to Deadline. When asked about the new role, producer Nate Moore said the character was an underdog and compared him to Rocky Balboa on the Comicbook.com Phase Zero podcast.

Captain America: The New World Order will be directed by Julius Onah.

The brothers from the previous two Captain America films (as well as the third and fourth Avengers epics) will not be returning to direct New World Order. Instead, Julius Onah, the Nigerian-American filmmaker behind 2018's The Cloverfield Paradox, will sit in the directors' seat at a later date.

The hiring was first announced in July 2022, when The Hollywood Reporter reported that the director, who made his feature-length debut in 2018 with the action thriller The Girl Is in Trouble, would be the first person without the last name of Russo to direct a Captain America film for the first time in more than a decade.

Malcolm Spellman, the showrunner for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, is working on Captain America: New World Order.

For the first time in his career, the director of Captain America: New World Order will work with Marvel Studios, but it is a different story for the film's main screenwriter. Malcolm Spellman, who wrote and served as showrunner on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, would be returning to pen the script for what was then called Captain America 4. The Hollywood Reporter reported that Dalan Musson, a writer on the Disney+ streaming series, would co-write the script.

One Of The Final Marvel Phase 5 Titles Will Be Captain America: New World Order

As Phase 4 of the Marvel Studios presentation comes to an end, fans received some much-needed rest in July 2022 when Kevin Feige revealed the entire slate for Phase 5, which will begin with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in February 2023 and conclude with Thunderbolts in July 2024.

Captain America: New World Order, which is expected to premiere in just two-and-a-half months, and the arrival of the long-awaited Fantastic Four. With Captain America 4 being so close to Thunderbolts, it wouldnt be surprising if the two films share a few characters or a connected narrative.

Captain America: New World Order or which upcoming Marvel films will fill those remaining spots in Phase 6, is still unknown, but expect to find out more in the very near future.
