Sam Wilson and Thunderbolt Ross Will Face Off in Captain America 4

As Marvel heads into Phase Five, one of the most anticipated projects on the upcoming schedule is Captain America: New World Order. With filming set to begin in the spring of 2023, things are starting to materialize in pre-production. Sam Wilson as Captain America headlines the cast, but Harrison Ford as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross is the noteworthy addition. Because of Wilson’s previous conflict with Ross in Captain America: Civil Warproducer Nate Moore teased the impending showdown between the two rivals, via Collider.

“Well, look, Sam Wilson’s Captain America, he is going to bring his own team to play. It’s no secret that Samuel Sterns is making his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is fantastic because Tim Blake Nelson’s the best,” said Moore. “Harrison Ford is taking on the role of General Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross, and to see Sam Wilson and Thunderbolt Ross, which if you remember actually threw him in prison at the end of Civil War because he violated the Sokovia Accords. There’s going to be some natural sparks there, which I think are going to be really fun.”
