Get ready, Marvel fans! Captain America returns with a thrilling "Brave New World" – a gripping conspiracy, epic battles, and Sam Wilson's heroic journey!
Marvel fans, brace yourselves for an exhilarating adventure as our iconic star-spangled hero returns in "Captain America: Brave New World." Following the events of "The Falcon and The Winter Soldier," Anthony Mackie reprises his role as Sam Wilson, now embracing the mantle of Captain America. As this film marks a significant part of Phase Five in the MCU, let's dive into what awaits us in this thrilling installment.
Initially slated for a May 3, 2024 release, "Captain America: Brave New World" encountered a slight delay, and now it is set to grace the big screens on July 26, 2024. Marvel had made some adjustments to their film schedule, and this installment was among the affected ones.
While fans eagerly await the release, "Captain America: Brave New World" will first have an exclusive run in theaters before becoming available for streaming on Disney+.
Marvel, true to its style, has been tight-lipped about plot details. However, director Julius Onah described the film as a "paranoid thriller" during the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con. It is likely to draw inspiration from the acclaimed "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," exploring themes of broken political systems and government distrust. Sam Wilson, now Captain America, is expected to confront a fascist conspiracy in this gripping chapter.
Harrison Ford will portray General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross, taking over the role from William Hurt. The history between Wilson and Ross, who imprisoned Wilson after he violated the Sokovia Accords in "Civil War," is set to play a significant part in the film. Expect sparks to fly as Sam Wilson's Captain America clashes with Thunderbolt Ross.
The talented Anthony Mackie returns as the new Captain America. Joining him are Danny Ramirez and Carl Lumbly, reprising their roles from "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" as Joaquin Torres and Isaiah Bradley, respectively. "The Incredible Hulk" alumni Tim Blake Nelson and Liv Tyler will revisit their roles as iconic characters Samuel "Leader" Sterns and Betty Ross.
Harrison Ford, who joined the cast in 2022, will bring his talents to the role of General Ross. Shira Haas, known for her role in Netflix's "Unorthodox," will join as Sabra, Marvel's first Israeli superheroine and a mutant. Xosha Roquemore is also set to star in an undisclosed role, while Julia Louis-Dreyfous returns as Contessa Valentina Allegra De Fontaine, causing trouble for our heroes. However, Sebastian Stan's Bucky Barnes won't be part of this film, as he is expected to feature in the Thunderbolts movie.

Julius Onah, known for directing "Luce" and "The Cloverfield Paradox," is at the helm of this film. He expressed excitement about exploring Sam Wilson's transformation from a counselor to Falcon to Captain America and how it will shape his decision-making as a powerful character in the MCU. Expect the action in "Brave New World" to be grounded and tactile, akin to "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" or "Black Widow."
The script is in the capable hands of "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" scribe Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson. Kramer Morgenthau serves as the cinematographer, while Gersha Phillips takes on the role of costume designer. Ramsey Avery, a favorite in the MCU, is the production designer, having previously worked on "Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2" and "Spider-Man: Homecoming."
Reports about the film first surfaced in early 2021, and principal photography began on March 21, 2023, at Trilith Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, under the working title "Rochelle Rochelle." Anthony Mackie was spotted on set in a new Captain America suit on May 16, 2023. Filming concluded in late June 2023, as announced by Kramer Morgenthau on Instagram.
As of now, there haven't been any official trailers or footage released for "Captain America: Brave New World." Depending on the progress of post-production, we might get a sneak peek of the film later in the year or early 2024.
With an ensemble of stellar actors, a promising plot, and a talented crew behind the scenes, "Captain America: Brave New World" is gearing up to be another blockbuster hit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
