‘Captain America: Brave New World’ Revealed By Anthony Mackie As Sequel’s New Title

Goodbye Captain America: New World Order, hello Captain America: Brave New World! It’s not often that a Marvel Studios movie undergoes a name change like this, nor do we typically see a lot of “officially” released set photos, but today we’re getting both courtesies of star Anthony Mackie.

Mackie dropped a set photo from the upcoming Captain America film, revealing himself in costume soaking up knowledge from Harrison Ford. The image also reveals the new title, Brave New World.

What’s up with the name change? No idea. Perhaps they wanted something that sounds a bit more hopeful, while still a tiny bit ominous? Perhaps they don’t want any Hollywood Hulk Hogan comparisons?

“When Harrison Ford tells you how kicking ass should look, you listen! LoL… Thanks for the on set wisdom and laughs my friend! Can’t wait to do it again…” Mackie shared on IG.

Ford makes his MCU as General Thunderbolt Ross, taking over the role left by the late William Hurt. The film is directed by Julius Onah, with co-stars Carl Lumbly, Danny Ramirez, Tim Blake Nelson, Liv Tyler, Shira Haas, Xosha Roquemore, and current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.

Captain America: Brave New World opens May 3rd 2024.
