Captain America 4 Director Warns Anthony Mackie Led Movie Will Create Massive Fallouts in the MCU

Most believed the story of Captain America was over when Chris Evans left the MCU after Marvel released 3 amazing standalone films with him as the lead. But the hero has been given new life through Sam Wilson’s promotion from Falcon to Captain America in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Intending to explore the character further, Marvel announced Captain America: New World Order at the San Diego Comic-Con. The film will see Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson return as the new Captain America.

What to expect from New World Order

Recently at the D23 Expo, Marvel revealed a lot of information on many of their projects including New World Order. While Shira Haas and Danny Ramirez were already set to appear as Sabra and Falcon, fans were surprised when the return of Tim Nelson’s The Leader was announced.

A supervillain that was set up in The Incredible Hulk will finally return, as has Abomination. Furthermore, considering the scale the movie’s title is alluding to, we could see many of the heroes from the MCU series feature in the film.

Director’s take on Sam’s journey

Witnessing many of the ups and downs in the MCU lore, Sam Wilson has seen significant character development. The director of New World Order, Julius Onah commented on where the character will go in the upcoming film in an interview with Marvel Entertainment. He said:

“He’s the leader. He’s the one responsible for people’s lives. The decisions he makes have a massive fallout and huge implications for the MCU as well. So now that he’s in this position, he has to start asking himself a new set of questions that he hadn’t asked before.”

In the previous films, the decisions of Steve Roger’s Captain America also caused a massive fallout amongst the Avengers over his values. We could be seeing something similar happen with Sam Wilson too, as the mantle of Captain America forces characters to make tough decisions.
