At the monstrous Marvel Studios panel tonight at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) 2022, Kevin Feige officially announced Captain America: New World Order as the name of Captain America 4, starring Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson. Wilson is the new Captain America following the conclusion of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which, among other things, explored the implications of what it would mean for a Black man to take up the shield and represent a country that has done a lot of problematic things. Marvel has set a theatrical release date of May 3, 2024 for Captain America: New World Order, and it will arrive at the tail end of MCU Phase 5.
