Anthony Mackie will star in Marvel Studios’ upcoming “Captain America 4,” which will be co-written by Malcolm Spellman, who also wrote “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
Anthony Mackie initially played Sam Wilson (aka the Falcon) in 2014’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” and he went on to reprise the role in five more Marvel films. After Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, handed over Captain America’s shield at the end of “Avengers: Endgame,” Wilson took over the mantle in the Disney Plus series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
In April, Variety reported that a fourth “Captain America” film was in the works, with Spellman and “FAWS” staff writer Dalan Musson writing the script. There is currently no director attached to the project. No other casting has been announced, though with Mackie officially engaged, several other “FAWS” actors, including his co-star Sebastian Stan, might be in the mix for the film.
Wyatt Russell’s character John Walker briefly held the Captain America shield before revealing himself to be unworthy of it, and Julia Louis-character Dreyfus’s Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, who recruited Walker in “FAWS” and also made a brief appearance in a post-credits scene for “Black Widow,” are two other possibilities alongside Anthony Mackie himself.
Given Marvel’s packed movie roster, “Captain America 4,” which hasn’t been officially confirmed, is almost probably not going to hit theaters until 2023. “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” “Eternals,” and “Spider-Man: No Way Home” are among Marvel’s upcoming films (a co-production with Sony Pictures). “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” “Thor: Love and Thunder,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” and the “Captain Marvel” sequel “The Marvels” are all scheduled for release in 2022.

Malcolm Spellman, the lead writer and author of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and series staff writer Dalan Musson are collaborating on the script for Captain America 4. This isn’t the top-secret project that my colleague Justin Kroll hinted to, which could bring Chris Evans back into the fold.
