Captain America 4 is in the works with Marvel, following the conclusion of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the shield will soar again.

Malcolm Spellman, who has the best surname as he creates truly entrancing shows, is reportedly signed on to give us more Sam Wilson and more Bucky Barnes aka the Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The Disney Plus show premiered the finale of the season recently as Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) officially replaced Steve Rogers as Captain America.

Mackie joined in the finale celebrations. “What a Friday it has been…thank you to everyone who’s seen Falcon and the Winter Soldier!” he wrote on Instagram.

If you watched until the final title card, the wording switched from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier to Captain America and the Winter Soldier, so we’re official now, baby.

January saw rumours that OG America Chris Evans would reprise his role after his character’s retirement in Avengers Endgame, but Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige was quick to debunk this.

Evans played the titular role in the first three Captain America movies and the Avengers series, so it is safe to say he is done. There is also no director latched on presently, and Marvel are pretty tight-lipped, but patience is a virtue.

However, what we do know is Spellman will co-write the script with Dalan Musson, a staff writer on Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Anthony Mackie is the current wielder of the shield, but the series has established multiple people in the universe who could be the contender.

Already the series has beaten Disney Plus records, topping popular shows such as Marvel’s WandaVision and Lucasfilm’s The Mandalorian with its biggest debut audience ever during the March 19 premiere.

Okay, so it is early days. But with the success of Disney Plus shows like WandaVision expanding the MCU, it really is an exciting time in cinema if you’re a Marvel fan.
