‘Captain America 4’ Director Says Sam Wilson Is Exciting Because He Is Not a Supersoldier

Captain America Brave new world hires matthew orton

‘Captain America: Brave New World’ is the upcoming 4th movie in the MCU’s ‘Captain America’ franchise. Despite the fact that Steve Rogers left the MCU on a high note, the show must go on so the shield was handed over to Sam Wilson, this fact alone highly divided the fandom.

Plenty of fans were outraged and confused that the former Falcon would be assuming the mantle of Captain America, due to Wilson’s lack of superpowers and enhanced physiology.

Julius Onah, director of the upcoming superhero flick has a different take on the situation, he claims that this fact alone is what makes Wilson’s Captain America all the more exciting. The fact that he doesn’t have an advantage and that he can bleed and get hurt will present us with some truly amazing action sequences. Onah presented his thoughts in the latest Empire’s ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ issue:

The action in this movie is incredibly exciting because this is a guy who can break, this is a guy who can bleed.We get to have a lot of fun pushing him to the limit.

As a reminder, ‘Brave New World’ went through a hellish development, partly due to the fact that it wasn’t received all that well by the test audiences. The movie underwent massive reshoots and some major rewrites. Nothing has been confirmed so far but rumors point in the direction that the test audiences considered the action in the upcoming movie to be underwhelming compared to the previous movies in the franchise. Mackie’s chemistry with upcoming romantic interest was likewise nonexistent and the movie’s political themes were boring.

Whether Onah is simply promoting the movie or telling us the truth remains to be seen. ‘Captain America: Brave New World’ is scheduled to be released in the United States on February 14, 2025, as part of Phase Five of the MCU.
