Carl Lumbly’s Isaiah Bradley, Danny Ramirez as New Falcon To Return in ‘Captain America: New World Order’!

Sam Wilson holding Captain America's shield

It’s Sam Wilson’s time to shine. After The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, we’ve been awaiting the moment when Anthony Mackie got his time as Captain America on the big screen. It’d been announced that a fourth Captain America movie was in the works with Mackie as Cap but other than that, it was silent on the Cap front until a new director was announced. Julius Onah is bringing Sam’s first big screen outing as the Star Spangled Man With a Plan to life, and the more details that come out, the more excited I get!

The 2022 San Diego Comic-Con panel released a title and a release date for the Anthony Mackie-led film, but other than that, we didn’t have much to go on until Disney’s D23 brought us more information. Titled Captain America: New World Order, it’s interesting given the fact that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s pilot episode is also called “New World Order,” but it does seem as if this time means the new world order is Sam Wilson.

When will Captain America: New World Order be released?

Not only did we get a title though, but the Comic-Con panel also officially gave New World Order a release date, and we got some additional casting details at D23! Hopefully we don’t have to wait this long to see Sam Wilson again but news broke that the movie would be released on May 3, 2024. And with multiple Avengers movies on the slate and beyond, it’s a great time to be a fan of Sam!

It’s Sam’s time

It feels like forever ago that Steve Rogers gave the shield to Sam Wilson (to be fair, it was three years ago) and yes, the pandemic did push The Falcon and the Winter Solider further than it was supposed to be, but it just feels like so long since we’ve had a Cap centric story and knowing that our Captain America is now Sam Wilson, I just want more content from Anthony Mackie’s portrayal soon!

Until we know anything else about Captain America: New World Order, we’ll just have to hope that we see Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson soon.

Captain America: New World Order Cast and Characters: D23 Confirms Isaiah Bradley Return, Danny Ramirez as Falcon

Isaiah Bradley played a major role in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The super-soldier serum was forced on Bradley in government testing, though this remained a secret for years. Bucky revealed the history to Sam Wilson as he struggled with the idea of taking over as Captain America, with Bradley telling Sam, “They were worried my story might get out. So, they erased me. My history. But they’ve been doing that for five hundred years. Pledge allegiance to that, my brother. They will never let a black man be Captain America. And even if they did, no self-respecting black man would ever wanna be.”

It seems that storyline will continue with his return in New World Order. Of course, with Sam Wilson becoming Captain America, there’s room for a new Falcon, as well, and Danny Ramirez will step into that role in the new film.
