Anthony Mackie will officially suit up in Marvel Studios’ upcoming “Captain America 4” movie, co-written by “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” head writer Malcolm Spellman.
Mackie first appeared as Sam Wilson (aka the Falcon) in 2014’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” After Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers passed on Captain America’s shield at the end of “Avengers: Endgame,” Wilson officially assumed the mantle over the course of the Disney Plus series, “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
In April, Variety reported that a fourth “Captain America” movie was in development with Spellman handling the script alongside “FAWS” staff writer Dalan Musson.
Deadline was first to report news that Mackie’s deal with Disney/Marvel had officially closed.
Marvel Studios declined to comment.
