What To Expect From Captain America: New World Order

Specific plot details about Captain America: New World Order are scant at the moment. However, the return of Carl Lumbly as Isaiah Bradley from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier suggests that the film will dive deeper into the mystery of the Super Soldier serum. Meanwhile, Tim Blake Nelson is also returning as Samuel Sterns aka The Leader who has not been seen in the MCU since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk.
It has already been confirmed that Ross is the US President in Captain America: New World Order. Whether his Red Hulk alter-ego will factor into the narrative is uncertain, but the character is already confirmed to appear in Marvel’s Thunderbolts. Overall, like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, expect that the upcoming Onah-directed MCU film will lean into political themes.
As Sam navigates through his new role as MCU’s Captain America, it’s likely the film will simultaneously develop Torres’ arc to be the next Falcon. The character was barely in the Disney+ series where he debuted, but like many characters in the franchise, his arc will progress over the next several years, with Captain America: New World Order only marking the next step of it.
