Falcon and The Winter Soldier showrunner, Malcolm Spellman, is reportedly behind the project.

Just hours after officially taking up the shield in the finale of Falcon and The Winter Soldier, it appears Anthony Mackie‘s Sam Wilson may be getting his very own film as the new Captain America.

According to Deadline, a fourth Captain America film is in development from Falcon and The Winter Soldier showrunner, Malcolm Spellman. The report notes that Mackie’s run as Captain America will be seperate from another upcoming Marvel film in which Chris Evans is slated to reprise his role as Steve Rogers. Details are slim at the moment, but it seems Evans’ return to the MCU won’t be as a focal point in another franchise, but as a likely cameo a la Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark in Spiderman: Homecoming.

Much like Wandavision, its critcally-lauded predecessor, Falcon and The Winter Soldier covers the fallout from the event of Avengers: Endgame, as Wilson struggles with succeeding Rogers as the next Cap and the government’s eagerness to appoint a new one in his absence. The six-episode breakout for the former sidekick also sets up the incoming phase of the MCU, which is still mostly out of focus. But with as many as four more series slated to air this year along with five new films packed into the back half of the calendar, that’ll probably change pretty soon.

The next Marvel series on deck is Loki. The show will premiere on June 11th via Disney+. Jump back to watch the Loki trailer and hold tight for updates on the next Captain America movie in the weeks and months ahead.
