Captain America: New World Order, the second to the last MCU Phase 5 movie, could feature the return of Red Skull, who was last seen in Infinity War.

Here's everything that's been confirmed about Captain America: New World Order - including predictions for the Captain America 4 cast and story. As every Marvel reveal from Comic-Con 2022 sets up bright futures for new heroes and villains alike, the title of Sam Wilson's first solo movie as the MCU's new Captain America is finally officially confirmed. Captain America 4 was first announced during the the MCU series Falcon and the Winter Soldierwhich ended with Falcon becoming the new Captain America.

Notably, Falcon and the Winter Soldier creator Malcolm Spellman is also the head writer of Captain America 4, but this doesn't necessarily indicate that the movie can just pick up from where the series concluded. Indeed, the new Captain America is unlikely to miss the Skrull invasion, and is bound to be part of Secret Invasion's crossover cast. With a total of 8 MCU movies and series between Secret Invasion and Captain America: New World Order, it's difficult to predict the state of the MCU by the time of Captain America 4's release.

The Captain America: New World Order cast currently only includes Sam Wilson himself. However, the movie's title suggests that Wilson will be joined by the oldest Captain America villain in the MCU - the Red Skull. Here's everything else that viewers need to know about Captain America: New World Order.

Captain America: New World Order's Title Explained

What's interesting about the title of Captain America 4 is that it's likely to be a setup for Red Skull's MCU return. In Marvel Comics, New World Order is the name of an organization formed by the Red Skull, who lures the Hulk into the NWO's base in the Amazon jungle, where the Juggernaut captures Hulk to be brainwashed. Black Knight's Avengers free Hulk from Red Skull's mental control during the ensuing battle, but Red Skull makes it appear as though the NWO members' escape jet crash-lands nearby. In reality, the NWO meets in secret under the base, plotting their next move. Apart from the mobster Silvermane and Red Skull himself, the real identities of the other members of the NWO are never revealed.

The real meaning of the Captain America 4 title is that it implies the upcoming MCU return of Red Skull, who was last seen in Vormir as the guardian of the Soul Stone in Avengers: Infinity WarBetween the Infinity War saga and Captain America: New World Order, Red Skull's return can happen in a number of ways. It's not out of the question for Red Skull to be somehow relieved of his guardianship and returned to Earth in time to wreak havoc in Captain America 4.

Captain America: New World Order Story - What Could Happen?

"New World Order" is also the title of the pilot episode of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the finale of which sees Wilson becoming the new Cap. How Falcon becomes Captain America in the comics is actually quite different from what happens in Falcon and the Winter Soldier, in which Spellman focused on not just the racial politics of a Black man becoming America's symbol, but also Cap's role as an intermediary between ordinary people and the authorities. Captain America is likely to further explore these themes, alongside Wilson navigating the machinations of another clandestine organization that's worse than Hydra.

Captain America: New World Order Cast: Who Could Return

Falcon and the Winter Soldier also ends with Sharon Carter getting pardoned by the government and hired by the CIA. Apart from Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson and Sebastian Stan's Bucky Barnes, Emily VanCamp is likely to reprise her role as Sharon Carter aka Power Broker, who could orchestrate Red Skull's return and the creation of the NWO. The Captain America: New World Order cast could also include Wyatt Russel's U.S. Agent and Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, whose Falcon in the Winter Soldier team-up lays the groundwork for Thunderbolts, which means Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova and Daniel Brühl's Helmut Zemo could also be in Captain America 4. There are also rumors that Chris Evans' Steve Rogers will make an appearance, but this is yet to be confirmed.

Captain America: New World Order Release Date

Captain America: New World Order will hit theaters on May 3, 2024. This is followed by the July 26, 2024 release of Thunderbolts, which Captain America is connected to in the comics. Unlike in MCU Phase 4, there might be a more directly unified plot that connects the MCU Phase 5 slate.
