Captain America New World Order Has Sam Wilson Vs Thunderbolt Ross

Production updates indicate that Captain America New World Order will also pit Sam Wilson against Thunderbolt Ross aside from The Leader. Film producer Nate Moore teases Harrison Ford’s Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross role may also be at odds with the new Cap.

Presumably, the movie picks up where the Disney Plus series Falcon and the Winter Soldier left off. Anthony Mackie plays Sam Wilson who is now the new Captain America. The upcoming movie is his first outing as the hero after fully accepting super soldier Captain Steve Rogers’ recommendation. Director Julius Onah already shared that he got on board because of the return of The Leader in the movie. Now, it appears the new Captain America has another character to contend with in Ford’s Ross.

According to Murphy’s Multiverse, Moore teased that Thunderbolt Ross will clash with hero Sam Wilson. Of course, the two characters have already met in the MCU. In Moore’s words:

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. 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.

The statement gave an insight as to some form of plot brewing for Captain America 4. As this will be the first movie for the new Captain America, Mackie is much like his role Wilson. He’s got pretty big combat shoes to fill indeed. The 6 episode Disney Plus miniseries garnered decent reviews from critics and audience alike. With  84% average on the Tomatometer and  83% average on the Audience score, the critics consensus state:

Packed with blockbuster action and deft character beats, Falcon and the Winter Soldier proves itself worthy of Captain America’s legacy with its globetrotting intrigue, mature social commentary, and the sparky rapport between stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan.

The same energy can resonate in the upcoming movie which will start filming during the first quarter of 2023. According to director Julius Onah, Sam Wilson as the Captain America now will go through extreme test of character. In his words:

…it’s so great to have an adversary who is working with this incredible intellect to really put Sam through the wringer in this story. And again, it’s a paranoid thriller; it’s this grounded adventure where I think everything that happens in this film feels so real and intense because of who this adversary is. What he’s going to have to go through in this film is because he’s got an adversary who is so terrifyingly intelligent.

The character Captain America showcases the aspect of the MCU that is more realistic as compared to other heroes. Conspiracies and covert missions within the government encompass his heroic journey. Being adept with the strategic functions of military, Cap is the reliable leader to extraordinary members of the team. It would be very interesting to see how Wilson mobilizes his own team for equality and justice.
