‘Captain America 4’ Has Found Its Director

The time of Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers as Captain America in the MCU ended in 2019 with Avengers Endgame. Two years later, a new Captain America was named — Steve’s close friend Sam Wilson, previously known as the Falcon, who’s been part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Played by Anthony Mackie, Sam Wilson took the shield of Captain America in the final episode of the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Shortly after the series concluded, Deadline reported that Marvel Studios is developing the fourth Captain America movie, which would be the first movie with Sam Wilson’s Captain America. And now, more than a year later, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the movie has found its director.

According to the report, the movie is set to be directed by Nigerian-American filmmaker Julius Onah, who is best known for 2018’s The Cloverfield Paradox. Malcolm Spellman, who served as the head writer on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series, is developing the script. So far, only Mackie is confirmed to reprise his role, but there’s no word on some other actors whose return seems kinda obvious; Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker are some of those.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series ended with Sam Wilson becoming the new Captain America, Bucky finally finding his inner peace, John Walker becoming US Agent, and Sharon Carter receiving a pardon from the US Government. However, after she got her old job back at the CIA, it was revealed that she was planning to sell government resources, classified information, and weapons, which could potentially make her one of the villains in the upcoming movie.

There’s no word yet on when the movie will start production, but the development is moving forward, and we cannot wait for the next Captain America adventure!
