We’ve learned new details about what to expect in the new “Captain America 4” film, which will see Sam Wilson in the role of Captain America.

What is ‘Captain America 4’ about?

Deadline reported in August that Anthony Mackie had signed a deal to play Sam Wilson again in “Captain America 4.”

  • The film would include writer Malcolm Spellman, who penned episodes of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
  • It’s unclear if Sebastian Stan, who plays the Winter Soldier in the series, alongside Mackie’s Sam Wilson, will appear in the movie, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
  • “This is not believed to be the top-secret project tipped by my colleague Justin Kroll that might bring Chris Evans back into the fold,” according to Deadline.

Will Sam Wilson be Captain America?

Yes. Nate Moore, vice president of production and development for Marvel Studios, told ComicBook.com in a new “Phase Zero” podcast episode that the new film will show us all how Sam Wilson adapts to being Captain America.

  • “I think, he’s not Steve Rogers and I think that’s a good thing,” Moore said on ComicBook.com’s “Phase Zero” podcast. “Because to me, this new Cap is Rocky. He’s going to be the underdog in any situation. He’s not a super soldier. He’s not a hundred years old. He doesn’t have the Avengers. What happens with this guy who announces publicly kind of, without the support, ‘I’m new Captain America.’ What happens next? I think is fascinating because he’s a guy. He’s a guy with wings and a shield, but he is a guy. So, we’re going to put him through the wringer and make him earn it, and see what happens when he is outweighed, outclassed, out-everything. What makes somebody Captain America? I’m going to argue it’s not being a super soldier. And I think we’re going to prove that with Mackie and Sam Wilson.”

When does ‘Captain America 4’ come out?

It’s unclear. The film was only recently announced so a release date has not been shared yet.
