A Captain America: New World Order set photo has given fans their first look at the new MCU Falcon, seemingly in costume.
Who is the new MCU Falcon?
The photo shows who appears to be Danny Ramirez, who played Joaquin Torres in the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, in a green and brown costume from behind. He’s walking alongside Anthony Mackie, who seems to be in his new Captain America suit.
Towards the end of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Ramirez’s character was given the Falcon mantle and suit by Sam Wilson when he became the new Captain America, so the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel seems to be following up on that story thread.
Captain America: New World Order will be directed by Julius Onah from a screenplay written by The Falcon and the Winter Soldier head writer Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson. The film features Anthony Mackie reprising his role as Sam Wilson, who has now officially taken on the mantle of the MCU’s new Captain America.
Mackie will be joined by returning The Falcon and the Winter Soldier stars Danny Ramirez and Carl Lumbly, who are once again playing the roles of Joaquin Torres and Isaiah Bradley, respectively, as well as MCU newcomer Shira Haas as Sabra.
