Last July, Marvel Studios announced that the film originally subtitled New World Order will be released on May 3, 2024. But after a behind-the-scenes photo of stars Mackie and Harrison Ford, the name was changed.
In Captain America 4, Wilson is contemplating whether he was willing to become Captain America while working alongside Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier, portrayed by Sebastian Stan) as the U.S. government created their own “Captain America” in Wyatt Russell’s U.S. Agent.
Brave New World is co-written by Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s Malcolm Spellman and Julius Onah, who will also direct the movie
Mackie will take on the role of Captain America, while Ford makes his MCU debut as Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, due to the death of William Hurt
Finally, Brave New World film will see the return of two Incredible Hulk characters, Samuel Sterns (Tim Blake) and Betty Ross (Liv Tyler), with Ford’s Thunderbolt serving as the U.S. president.
Shira Haas and Danny Ramirez also star, with Carl Lumbly returning as his Falcon and the Winter Soldier character Isaiah Bradley.
