“Captain America 4” will feature both Evans’ Steve Rogers and Mackie’s Sam Wilson wearing the vibranium-enforced shield. The actor took to Twitter on Saturday to clarify whether he will be returning to the movie. Upon responding to THR’s tweet, Wilson confirmed Mackie’s role in the film and confirmed he would not reprise his 8-year stint as Captain America.
Captain America Is Amid Upcoming Film
As a result of last year’s Disney+ series, “Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” Mackie’s Wilson character became Captain America after years of starring as Falcon.
In 2011, Evans made his first appearance as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe film “Captain America: The First Avenger.”
Dalan Musson, a staff writer from the show, and Malcolm Spellman, the creator and head writer of Winter Soldier, are currently developing the script.
Chris Evans Makes Clear Who Captain America
The film’s cast is still being finalized, but Nigerian-American filmmaker Julius Onah (“The Cloverfield Paradox”) will direct it. The release date of the film has not yet been announced. As Evans promoting his new film “Lightyear,” he told Yahoo News that Bruce Mackie is the ideal candidate for the Captain America role.
I’m the best person to do it. In my opinion, he does it justice,” Evans told the outlet at the time. It’s so wonderful to see him succeed. It will be interesting to see what they do with it in the future. It’s just the sweet memories I had with the role that bring tears to my eyes.”
