Anthony Mackie Signs New Deal to Head Captain America 4: Reports


Anthony Mackie will star in Captain America 4, the Falcon and Winter Soldier actor has reportedly signed a new deal with Marvel, which is the most inevitable news since the end of April. Mackie will return as his Marvel Cinematic Universe character Sam Wilson / Captain America – previously the Falcon – in the as-yet-untitled new Captain America film that follows the events of the Disney + series.

Spoilers ahead for The Falcon and Winter Soldier. Captain America 4 is likely to pick up on some of his breadcrumbs, including the machinations of Emily VanCamps Sharon Carter / Power Broker and Wyatt Russell’s platoon as John Walker / US agent. Neither actor has been confirmed for Captain America 4 yet.

Deadline first brought news that Mackie had signed a contract to run Captain America 4, which The Hollywood Reporter confirmed shortly afterwards. It does so almost four months after The Falcon and the Winter Soldier ended – which has now received five nominations at the Emmys 2021 – with the existence of Captain America 4 in the works, which was revealed on the premiere day of the series finale.

Falcon and the Winter Soldier creator Malcolm Spellman co-writes Captain America 4 with Dalan Musson, who wrote the fifth episode of “Truth” in the MCU Disney + series.

There is no director on Captain America 4, although the last two Captain America films served as an important launch pad. Anthony and Joe Russo directed the previous two chapters – Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014 and Captain America: Civil War 2016 – and then directed the two mega-meetings, 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War and 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. two of the greatest and top-grossing films of all time. Captain America 4 doesn’t have a release date either, but don’t expect the movie anyway considering how busy the MCU calendar is.

Next up is Marvel’s first leading Asian superhero in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on September 3rd, followed by a new MCU ensemble from Oscar-winning actress Chloé Zhao in Eternals, out in India in late October and elsewhere in early November, and the Tom Holland Threequel Spider-Man: No Way Home closes the year on December 17th.

In 2022 we will have Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (March 25th), Taika Waititis Thor: Love and Thunder (May 6th), Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (July 8th) and Brie Larson – led The Marvels (November 11th).
