Anthony Mackie will star in Captain America 4, in response to reviews that The Falcon and Winter Soldier actor has finalised a brand new take care of Marvel, in what’s the most inevitable piece of stories due since late April. Mackie will return as his Marvel Cinematic Universe character Sam Wilson/ Captain America — beforehand, the Falcon — with the as-yet untitled new Captain America film following on from the occasions of the Disney+ collection.
Spoilers forward for The Falcon and Winter Soldier. Captain America 4 will probably choose up a few of its breadcrumbs, together with the machinations of Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter/ Energy Dealer, and Wyatt Russell’s flip as John Walker/ US Agent. Neither actor is confirmed as but for Captain America 4.
Deadline first introduced phrase of Mackie having signed a contract to guide Captain America 4, with The Hollywood Reporter confirming shortly after. This comes almost 4 months on from the top of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier — which in the meantime has garnered 5 nominations on the 2021 Emmys — with the existence of Captain America 4 being within the works revealed on the premiere day of the collection finale.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier creator Malcolm Spellman is ready as author on Captain America 4 alongside Dalan Musson, who wrote the MCU Disney+ collection’ fifth episode “Fact”.
No director is ready on Captain America 4, although the final two Captain America films served as a serious launchpad. Anthony and Joe Russo helmed the earlier two chapters — 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and 2016’s Captain America: Civil Battle — after which went on to direct the twin mega get-togethers, 2018’s Avengers: Infinity Battle and 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, two of the most important and highest-grossing films of all time. Captain America 4 would not have a launch date both, however do not anticipate the film for some time anyway given how packed the MCU calendar is.
Subsequent up is Marvel’s first lead Asian superhero in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on September 3, adopted by a brand new MCU ensemble from Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao in Eternals out late October in India and early November elsewhere, and the Tom Holland threequel Spider-Man: No Manner Dwelling closing out the 12 months on December 17.
In 2022, we can have Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen’s Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity (March 25), Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder (Might 6), Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Without end (July 8), and Brie Larson-led The Marvels (November 11).
That leaves Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly-starrer Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania for February 2023 with Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror, and James Gunn’s return to Marvel for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in Might 2023.
