It’s been a big day for the Captain America franchise, as we finally got the confirmation that Anthony Mackie will join the project as its titular hero. His journey to become the symbol of America hasn’t been an easy one throughout the Disney+ series Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson will continue the story they set up in the series, as they are penning the film’s script. It looks like they may have already planned quite a bit, as Cosmic Circus has shared the information that the film is eyeing a June 2022 production start.
Prep will already begin in May of that year with production moving to Georgia. There’s always the chance things might change, especially as it is uncertain how long the pandemic will continue to roam across the world. It’s not unusual for Marvel Studios to map out their productions far in advance, and we don’t know how long Mackie has already been signed on. For all we know, today’s announcement might just be the official confirmation.
It’s going to be interesting to see how the film continues the story set up in the Disney+ series. There’s a lot of potential in the politics and themes that were introduced. Especially with the returning writing team, it’s certain they won’t just have the topic as a one-off but build upon it as Sam continues to accept his new role. It’s great to see the franchise explore these different avenues and it might open up the possibility for him to build up his own trilogy that tackles these very sensitive topics.
