Avengers 5 writer may have already teased new Captain America scenes
One of the biggest status quo appearances ever in Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 has been Sam Wilson’s promotion for the role of Captain America. The journey was first set in Avengers: Endgame, and by the end of Disney+’s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie’s protagonist was officially holding a shield.
The character would star in his own film, Captain America: New World Order. Little is known about the project yet, but The Leader will be the movie’s big bad, and the story will really put Sam to the test in his new role.
Captain America will be in trouble because, following his encounter with The Leader, he will almost certainly play a key role in Avengers: The Kong Dynasty.
When that time comes, what should fans really expect from the character as he leads a new journey of the world’s mightiest heroes? Well, looking at the work of the newly hired writer from The Kong Dynasty, fans can already get a pretty good idea of Sam’s future.
Captain America’s future teased
Recently, it was confirmed that writer Jeff Loveness, who also wrote Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantomania, was hired to write the upcoming MCU film Avengers: The Kong Dynasty.
In addition to his previous experience with the MCU, a significant part of his writing, which also includes Rick and Morty and the Miracle Workers, is how he also wrote the comic series All-New Captain America Special Volume 1.
The special saw several notable points of interest in how the character of Sam Wilson was portrayed.
For one, the story doesn’t take long after Steve Rogers de-powering Sam Wilson to be Captain America. He has some time under his belt, not too much – more importantly, he still has some doubts about himself.
This doubt comes in two forms. For one, he’s not sure how good he’d be at leading something like the Avengers, which is likely something that the MCU’s Sam Wilson would struggle with in the Kang dynasty, provided he’s not already in the New World Order. .
On top of that, the comic sees Sam compare himself directly to Steve Rogers. Considering how prominent Rogers has been in Wilson’s MCU story, there will almost certainly be some behavior as he finds his feet.
However, the protagonist still has some confidence in his abilities, as seen in his ego below:
Seeing as how the New World Order will come first in the timeline, Sam Wilson as seen in The Kong Dynasty can lean over confidently here. By then, he must have been compared to Steve so many times that he is a little tired of the comparison.
Loveness’s take on the character is not without its moments of ups and downs. In fact, it actually contains one of the most shared moments between Sam Wilson and Spider-Man from the comics.
What will Sam’s future MCU path look like?
An author’s past work is not always an accurate representation of what their next work will look like. Its content certainly doesn’t confirm anything specific to an upcoming project like The Kong Dynasty—for example, despite the big moment between Spider-Man and Captain America, there’s no guarantee the moment will arrive in the MCU.
But still, it’s fun to speculate.
Given the New World Order’s 2024 placement, Sam Wilson will almost certainly be in a more confident position, at least with respect to his new spell, until sometime around 2025. When The Kong Dynasty comes knocking, this is probably where Sam will have to deal with his insecurities about leading a team; After all, it would be hard to see anyone other than Captain America leading the core Avengers team.
Jeff Loveness’s work in comics alone is proof that he has the experience to juggle all those serious topics, while also injecting some humor into the mix – his Rick and Morty experience isn’t one to use itself. Is.
The real test will be with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantomania, which hits theaters on February 17, 2023. Hopefully, it will live up to the ever-increasing expectations. In fact, seeing as how Loveness has Avengers 5 on its hands, it might even need an above and beyond.
Avengers: The Kong Dynasty 2 will release on May 2025.
