Obviously, Anthony Mackie should be the star, in the costume of the new owner of the shield!
Steve Rogers is no longer here, long live Captain America ! A fourth installment of the film franchise is in development at Marvel, announces the site The Hollywood Reporter , in the wake of the broadcast of the finale of Falcon and the Winter Soldier . Attention spoilers!
Info that leaked at the right time for the super-heroic franchise, since the Disney Plus series has just introduced a new Captain in the MCU. It was Anthony Mackie , aka Sam Wilson, aka Falcon so far, who took over the shield from his party comrade at the end of Avengers: Endgame . As in the comics, the former US Army veteran has therefore become “Black Captain America”.
And while Marvel isn’t making any official announcements yet, we can imagine that Captain America 4 will see Sam return with the shield on his arm, directly following Falcon and the Winter Soldier . Moreover, according to THR, the boss Kevin Feige will trust the authors of the series to write the screenplay for this new opus. Malcolm Spellman, creator of Falcon and the Winter Soldier and his fellow writer, Dalan Musson, are tasked with putting together these new adventures of Captain America .
Recall that the Avenger “Stars & Stripes” of the MCU has been entitled to three films focused on him for a decade: Captain America: First Avenger in 2011, Captain America: the Winter Soldier in 2014 and Captain America: Civil War in 2016. None yet in sight for this 4th part.
