Give Us a Comic Book Accurate Version of the Leader as Main Villain

Captain America: New World Order is all set to bring back one of the most memorable characters from the Comics. It is announced at the D23 Expo that the movie is going to mark the appearance of the Leader after The Incredible Hulk. The upcoming movie is to be directed by The Cloverfield Paradox director Julius Onah and going to feature Sam Wilson’s Captain America in action. The news of the Leader making his return to this project was quite a shock for the fans.

Surprising choice as a villain for Captain America: New World Order

It can’t be denied that some of the fans were extremely delighted for Samuel Sterns’ return. But it’s also an undeniable fact that the casting seems a little unique for a Captain America movie.

The last time, Blake Nelson’s character was seen on the big screens, he was lying down while Bruce Banner’s blood going into his wound, heavily affecting him. This was the very first tease of the character in the MCU.

Captain America: New World Order is most probably going to start his story from that point. And as per the reports suggest, we will get a full-fledged comic-book accurate Leader in the movie. 

Potential connection with the She-Hulk series

She-Hulk is one of the most headlined series in recent times. While it’s facing criticism with CGI, complaints about the storyline are also there. But similarly, Tim Roth’s return as the Abomination also excited the fans. In the same way, they might also give us a glimpse of the Leader as he is more related to Hulk and his company. 

This particular point also explains that the She-Hulk series still lacks a proper antagonist to lead the show. During the last episode, we encountered a group of people namely The Wrecking Crew who came to take Jennifer Walters’ blood. It can be an assumption that Samuel Sterns’ aka the Leader is behind it.

The movie’s going to feature Sam Wilson’s Falcon played by Anthony Mackie who took up the mantle of Captain America in the last The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. It is also going to bring back the characters of Isaiah Bradley and Danny Ramirez as the New Falcon from the previous series. The movie’s more precisely described by the director as a “paranoid thriller”.

Captain America: New World Order is going to start its filming the next year and hit the theaters on May 3, 2024
