The next installment of the “Captain America” films has a new name.
The film, which has Anthony Mackie continuing his mission as the new Captain America after being tapped by Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers to take the shield, was initially called “Captain America: New World Order.”
The announcement of the new title was made on social media along with the first photo from the set showing Mackie with the shield strapped to his back, talking with co-star Harrison Ford.
This is Ford’s first Marvel movie and he’s taking over the role of Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross following the death of William Hurt, Variety reported. Ross is now the president of the U.S.
Last month, Ford said he was having fun, but it is still work, as he filmed in Atlanta.
“I mean, there are tough days and easy days and fun days and all kinds of days. It’s a tough schedule and, yeah, it’s fun. But it’s not a walk in the park. It’s not fun fun. It’s work,” Ford told Esquire.
“Captain America: Brave New World” is slated to be released on May 3, 2024. Along with Mackie and Ford, Liv Tyler reprises her role as Betty Ross, as does Tim Blake Nelson as Samuel Sterns. Both appeared in “The Incredible Hulk” in 2008.
