Marvel Studios has revealed on Tuesday morning via its Twitter account that the fourth Captain America film, the first to star Anthony Mackie as the lead, will now be titled Brave New World.
A behind-the-scenes photo of actors Mackie and Harrison Ford was released along with the news. The studio revealed in July of last year that the movie’s initial subtitle was “New World Order.” The 3rd of May 2024 has been established as the release date.
Brave New World follows the events of Avengers: Endgame and the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. In the former, Mackie’s Sam Wilson, who had been playing hero Falcon since Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s 2014 release, received the Captain America shield from Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers.
In the film Brave New World, co-written by Malcolm Spellman of Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Julius Onah, who will also serve as director, Mackie will carry on Wilson’s Captain America story while Ford will make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, a role he has assumed since William Hurt’s passing.
With Ford’s Thunderbolt playing the role of the U.S. president, the movie will witness the return of two Incredible Hulk characters, Samuel Sterns (Tim Blake) and Betty Ross (Liv Tyler). Shira Haas and Danny Ramirez also star, with Carl Lumbly reprising his role as Falcon and Winter Soldier Isaiah Bradley.
