Captain America – New World Order
There is a new Captain America in the MCU, and we have had mixed feelings about that! The upcoming MCU movie, Captain America – New World Order, following the events of the Disney+ series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, left Sam Wilson/ Captain America, now played by Anthony Mackie, with a new set of challenges to face. Among his villains is Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine played by Julia Louis-Dreyfu), who is assembling her team of vigilantes with John Walker/ US Agent played by Wyatt Russell, and Sharon Carter,/ Power Broker played by Emily VanCamp, a former SHIELD and CIA agent gone bad. Malcolm Spellman, the head writer for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, has penned the script. The plot and theme of the movie remain a mystery – all we know is that Julius Onah will be responsible for the direction, and the movie is slated to hit theatres in May 2024.

The Thunderbolts have been through many iterations over the past 2+ decades, but there’s one thing that ties all of the team’s incarnations together: they’re all villains pretending to be heroes. While the various leaders of the Thunderbolts often have their own agendas, the team has a surprising habit of becoming a force for good. In the act of pretending to be heroes, the Thunderbolts often find themselves genuinely becoming heroes in the process. This movie was reported to be in the works in June 2022. The cast for Thunderbolts was confirmed at D23 Expo 22, with Harrison Ford playing the role of Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross. Eric Pearson, the Black Widow and Thor: Ragnarok screenwriter, has been hired as the writer, while Jake Schreier has been brought aboard to direct.
