WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Episode 6 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
Fresh reports from The Hollywood Reporter claim that the showrunner behind the TV series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is writing the script for an upcoming Captain America 4 for Marvel Studios. Yep, this is about to get berserk! Many of us fans hoped that Sam Wilson would return along with his shield for a second season of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier but a new report tells us that Captain America 4 is already in development.
Malcolm Spellman is set to produce the fourth film of the star-spangled superhero. Dalan Musson will also be involved in the project, contributing to the construction of the script for this new film.
No plot details or cast names have been revealed yet. In addition, Marvel Studios is yet to provide an official release date for the Captain America 4 film.
At the moment there is no confirmed casting, but it is almost certain that the film will continue the storyline of Sam Wilson as the new Captain America flanked by Bucky.
What This Means
If you have already seen the sixth and final episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier you’re probably familiar with the fact that Sam Wilson has finally accepted the legacy of Cap’s shield, acquired the role of Captain America, and has also started wearing the mythical costume seen in the comics, becoming the first and official Captain America of color.
The movie could possibly bring several characters of the show to the big screen such as John Walker / US Agent. (Wyatt Russell), Sharon Carter / Power Broker (Emily VanCamp), Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl) and Countess de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus).
As for Chris Evans, there is no indication that he will return as Steve Rogers or not. The last time we saw him, Rogers was a retired old man having lived his best life by stepping back in time. The Falcon and Winter Soldier series itself doesn’t answer the question of what happened to him after the events of Avengers: Endgame. The series only mentions Rogers by his name a few times without explaining what exactly happened. Legend has it that Cap is now on the moon watching us all.
