‘Captain America 4’ Reportedly Gets a Director
It was a Phase Four debut that most certainly excited a lot of fans, and spoke to the future of his character in the MCU, as Sam Wilson finally embraced the shield bestowed to him; and now, it appears as though the impending Captain America 4 gets its director.
The massive undertaking that was Avengers: Endgame was a project that was crafted in order to book end the story that Marvel Studios had been crafting within its cinematic universe for well over a decade.
Bringing the forces of Thanos- foreshadowed for most of the worldbuilding that’s taken place over the course of the MCU- against the combined forces of the Avengers, and every hero from most every Marvel project released.
Although the entire project was mostly dedicated to concluding much of what the MCU had built to that point, there was one moment that catapulted a specific mantle into the future; Steve Rogers returning from his future, to give Sam Wilson the Captain America shield.
It was a moment that proved to be the central focus on Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and the birth of Wilson’s Captain America; a moment that was solidified by Marvel when they announced a brand new installment of the heroes series arriving with Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson playing the eponymous hero
With that project likely a few years away, it seems to be making a lot of progress, as Captain America 4 has reportedly found its director in a very unlikely source.
The Hollywood Reporter has recently revealed that Marvel has tabbed Julius Onah to helm this brand new Captain America story that will mark the fourth in the history of the character and the MCU’s first exploration of a new holder of the mantle.
Onah is a Nigerian director who is most known for bringing to life 2018s The Cloverfield Paradox, and will craft the story alongside writers Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson; both of whom worked to bring the Falcon and The Winter Soldier to life.
