Spoilers for episode 6 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier below:
According to the report, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s head writer Malcolm Spellman will pen the Captain America 4 script with Dalan Musson. Musson was a staff writer on the series.
THR couldn’t share any additional information about the upcoming project. However, it is likely that following the events of the “One World, One People”, Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson will play the role of Captain America. After wrestling with doubt throughout the series, Wilson finally took on the mantle of Captain America during yesterday’s finale.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was set months after the events of Avengers: Endgame. In the series, Chris Evans’ original Captain America is presumed to be dead or at the very least in hiding. Deadline added that the rumoured return of Chris Evans as Steve Rogers would be a separate project to the newly revealed Captain America 4.
No director or cast members were revealed as attached to Captain America 4. Marvel didn’t provide any comment.
Many of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s cast and crew members have been coy on the subject of a potential second season. However, Kevin Feige has previously stated that Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes “are essential to the MCU”. It could be that a second season of the series won’t be released and the pair will move to the big screen in Captain America 4.
