‘Captain America: New World Order’ is Bringing Back an Old MCU Favourite

The much anticipated Captain America: New World Order was finally shown off at Disney’s recent D23 event, with new plot details, images and more revealed about the upcoming Marvel film. Disney confined that many new and old faces from the MCU will join actor Anthony Mackie in the new film, including a few surprise additions. For those who watch the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, you’ll be pleased to hear that Carl Lumbly will be returning as Isaiah Bradly, the original supersoldier who was first introduced in the recent TV series.  The most surprising casting announced for the upcoming film was the reveal that Tim Blake Nelson will be back as The Leader. The reason for this announcement surprising the MCU fanbase is that The Leader’s one and only appearance was during 2008’s The Incredible Hulk.

At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Steve Rogers handed over the mantle of Captain America to Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson. Up until that moment, Wilson was best known in the MCU as The Falcon, a role that actor Danny Ramirez took over in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and will be reprising it in the next Captain America film.

“He was great. I can’t tell you where it’s gonna go, but obviously, he’s not in there for no reason,” Falcon and Winter Soldier creator Malcolm Spellman previously told Entertainment Tonight when asked about the new Falcon. “He just lights up. If we had had 10 episodes, we had a giant storyline for him built out. But he does have plenty of real estate in these six.”

And while Wilson initially rejected the Captain America shield, title and responsibility, he eventually accepted the role. By the end of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, he is suited up and ready to do what he can to bring peace and justice in the MCU. For those eagerly anticipating the upcoming film, you will, unfortunately, be stuck waiting for a while longer. The newest entry in the Captain America franchise – Captain America: New World Order – is set to release in theatres on May 3, 2024.
