Captain America 4 is moving forward at Marvel Studios with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series writer Malcolm Spellman attached to pen the script. Spellman, who was the head writer and creator of the Disney+ and Marvel’s series, will write the script with Dalan Musson, a staff writer on the same show, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Chris Evans played Captain America through his Steve Rogers’ character in all the three films-Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and Captain America: Civil War (2016), but at the end of the Avengers: Endgame, he retired and handed his shield to Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, whose story is mapped in the series along with Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/the Winter Soldier.
The fourth Captain America is likely to continue to Wilson’s story though there is no official update on the casting. No director is attached, and Evans’ involvement/return remains unconfirmed. Marvel was tight-lipped as usual, THR said.
For the series, Spellman had assembled a nearly all-Black writers room, a move that was praised for bringing the Black experience to the forefront.
Falcon and the Winter Soldier has earned strong critical and fan reaction. The series premiered on March 19.
