The following article contains spoilers for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
After the events of the finale of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, the world finally had a rightful successor to Steve Rogers to take on the Captain America mantle. John Walker proved to be a poor choice, but by the time the credits rolled on episode six, Sam Wilson, aka Falcon, accepted Steve's gift in Endgame to become the new Captain America. Well, Steve's hope for Sam is now coming to the big screen as Mackie is set to star in a fourth Captain America solo movie.
The new film will be written by Falcon and The Winter Soldier creator Malcolm Spellman and staff writer Dalan Musson. There is currently no director attached, but Marvel is closing in on a shortlist as I write these very words. According to Deadline, this is an entirely different Captain America project than the highly secretive script that could bring Chris Evans back as Steve Rogers. All we know about that potential movie is it will be set shortly after the events of Endgame, which saw Steve spend his life with his one true love, Peggy Carter. Cap and Agent Carter in a post-world war set standalone film, take my money already.
As to when we might expect to see Captain America 4, we could be in for a bit of a wait as Marvel's release schedule is currently looking jam-packed. Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings arrives in cinemas on September 3, Eternals on November 5, and Spider-Man: No Way Home on December 17. Next year has Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness on March 25, Thor Love and Thunder on May 6, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on July 8, and Captain Marvel sequel The Marvels on November 11. 2023 currently has two confirmed MCU titles with Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania on February 17, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 on May 5; naturally, we have assumed that Deadpool 3 will take one of the 2023 slots, but nothing has been confirmed.
While we might have to wait a bit before Captain America 4 starts production, we will most likely see Mackie again in some capacity in one of the many movies and TV shows heading our way.
