‘Captain America 4’ gets a director

The new Captain America is getting ready to fly in his own movie.

At the end of last year’s Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter SoldierAnthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson officially inherited the old shield from Steve Rogers and became Captain America of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since then, Marvel has been silent about what’s next for the character, but there are rumors that the company is already quietly developing a fourth. Captain America movie, this one revolves around Sam instead of Steve.

While Marvel still hasn’t officially confirmed that news, The Hollywood Reporter now says the project has a director: Julius Onah. His previous work includes 2018’s The Cloverfield Paradox – which you may remember as the surprise clover field sequel released on Netflix immediately after it was first announced at the Super Bowl — and the 2019 indie thriller Luce

THR have no details on the film’s plot, and they don’t know if Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers (who is technically old and retired but still lives in the MCU) will appear in the sequel. The film is being written by Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson, the creator and one of the authors of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series. It is also questionable whether the Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan, will also appear in the film. (My guess probably wouldn’t be, except maybe in some sort of brief cameo.)

Captain America 4 has no official release date yet. Technically, the project hasn’t even been officially announced by Marvel. But given this development, that could happen soon.
