The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Season 1 ended with several unanswered questions. Yet the announcement of Captain America 4 on the series finale day, gave new hopes to the MCU fans. The first film, Captain America- The First Avenger garnered attention from fans worldwide, which led to two more Cape flicks. And now the fourth one is in the making. In the previous parts, Steve Rogers appeared in the lead as Captain America. However, the upcoming film may lack this element of familiarity. Steve was last seen in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame as an ageing man who withdraws from the world of superheroes and indulges in his personal affairs.
A recent January dated report claimed that Chris Evans will return to MCU. Though this piece of news came as a surprise to many, Chris took to his Twitter handle to falsify the claims. After the release of Avengers- End Game, Evans has publicly announced his departure from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Malcolm Spellman the showrunner of Falcon and the Winter Soldier is on board to pen the script for the untitled Captain America 4 along with writer Dalan Musson while the director’s chair is still empty.

Here are all the deets you need to know about the plot, release date, trailer, and cast of Captain America 4.
The Plot of Captain America 4
There is no concrete news about how Captain America 4 will go further, but the conclusion of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier fills up the missing pieces. In the series, Sam Wilson takes the title of Captain America before being reluctant to take up the mantle. If it goes this way, the film’s story will revolve around Sam Wilson and the challenges following his new title. Captain America 4 will take forward the journey of previous films and unfold occurrences from where they have been left off.

Captain America 4: Release Date
Studio boss Kevin Feige in an interview with Collider revealed that he might know the air date for Captain America 4. The producer explained that release dates are often being pushed back or delayed after the COVID-19 outbreak. He also revealed that for the role of Captain America, he has Mackie’s in mind. This is what he said:
“Yes, we always work towards release dates, that doesn’t mean they don’t shift and change, certainly as we’ve seen lately, but we have something specific in mind.”
Currently, Marvel’s feature slate is crowded and, likely, Captain America won’t release until 2023. It must be noted that the film is still in the early stages of pre-production. No release date has been announced so far. Though it is a safe bet to say that Captain America 4 is not hitting the theatres before 2023.
Hoping that the long wait is worth it for all.
The Cast of Captain America 4
There is no second thought regarding the appearance of Anthony Mackie in the lead role of Captain America but after the recent news broke out, we’re not entirely sure if he’ll return or will be replaced by a new cast.
Recently, Deadline reported that Mackie’s deal for Captain America 4 had been closed off. So his appearance remains uncertain since Marvel Studios refused to make any official statement regarding this matter. Other than Mackie, we’re expected to see the old cast reprising their roles in the highly anticipated movie “Captain America 4.”
Sebastian Stan’s return as Bucky Barnes is quite predictable as Cape and Bucky are inseparable. The audience may witness the worlds of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and Captain America colliding with each other. With Emily VanCamp, Wyatt Russell, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Danny Ramirez taking up their original roles in the movie as well.
The above may prove to be true taking into account the involvement of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s writer, Malcolm Spellman in Captain America 4. The details about directors have not been in the news yet.
What to Expect?
When it comes to the storyline not much is known as it’s been kept under wraps, however, Nate Moore producer of the famous Marvel franchise has revealed important information on where the film will discover Wilson, comparing the newly appointed Captain America to Rocky Balboa.
“I think he’s not Steve Rogers and I think that’s a good thing,” Moore said. “Because to me, this new Cap is Rocky. He’s going to be the underdog in any situation. He’s not a Super Soldier. He’s not a hundred years old. He doesn’t have the Avengers. What happens with this guy who announces publicly kind of, without the support, ‘I’m the new Captain America.’ What happens next? I think is fascinating because he’s a guy. He’s a guy with wings and a shield, but he is a guy.”
Captain America 4 is preparing for its return but it’s not exactly known when since an official release date is yet to be announced.
Nevertheless, we look forward to any official announcement about the plot, release date, and cast from the filmmakers in the forthcoming weeks/months. Till then, stay tuned and keep watching this space for more.
