“Captain America: New World Order” is Officially Filming

Anthony Mackie has officially suited up for his first lead role in a Marvel movie. Captain America: New World Order has begun filming, the fourth film in the Cap franchise, with Mackie reprising his role as Sam Wilson after leading Marvel’s epic Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. 

New World Order will find none other than Harrison Ford playing General Thaddeus Ross (replacing the late William Hurt) and will continue Sam Wilson’s story after the events in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier saw him finally accepting the shield Cap (Chris Evans) gave him at the end of Avengers: Endgame. 

Naturally, there’s little by way of plot details at this early stage, but we know The Falcon and the Winter Soldier creator and head writer Malcolm Spellman co-wrote the script alongside Dalan Musson (who also wrote for the Disney+ series), with Julius Onah directing.

New World Order will include Sam’s right-hand man, Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), who was there with Sam during his struggle with the Flag Smashers in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Tim Blake Nelson is on board with a crucial role as Samuel Sterns/The Leader, Danny Ramirez plays Joaquin Torres/Falcon (taking over for Sam, now that he’s the new Cap), Shira Hass as Sabra, Carl Lundry reprising his role from the Disney+ series as Isaiah Bradley, and Xosha Roquemore in an undisclosed role.

Captain America: New World Order is slated to hit theaters on May 3, 2024.
