Captain America 4 has a new nickname.

Marvel Studios announced Tuesday morning via their Twitter account that the fourth Captain America installment — and the first to star Anthony Mackie in the lead — is now calling New world.

The news came along with a behind-the-scenes photo of stars Mackie and Harrison Ford. Last July, the studio announced that the film was originally subtitled New world order. The release date has been set for May 3, 2024.

New world comes in the wake of the events of Avengers: Finale and the Disney+ series THE Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The first saw Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers pass the Captain America shield to Mackie’s Sam Wilson, who has since served as the Falcon hero Captain America: The Winter Soldier, released in 2014.

The Disney+ series saw Wilson ponder whether he was willing to take on the role entrusted to him as he worked alongside Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan) as the US government created its own ‘Captain America’ in US Agent by Wyatt Russell. (Both of these actors will appear as their characters in the upcoming film Lightningwhose production has been delayed due to the ongoing writers’ strike, along with other existing and new characters from Black Widow, Ant-Man and the Wasp and beyond.)

Co-written by Falcon and the Winter Soldieris Malcolm Spellman with Julius Onah, who is also expected to direct, New world will see Mackie continue Wilson’s journey as Captain America, while Ford makes his MCU debut as Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, in a role he assumed following the death of William Hurt.

The film will see the return of two Incredible Hulk characters, Samuel Sterns (Tim Blake) and Betty Ross (Liv Tyler), with Ford’s Thunderbolt serving as the president of the United States. Shira Haas and Danny Ramirez also star, with Carl Lumbly returning as hers Falcon and the Winter Soldier character Isaiah Bradley.
