Nelson’s The Leader was last seen in the 2008 film “The Incredible Hulk” as Samuel Sterns, who began his transformation into Hulk’s iconic villain.
When the “New World Order” team took the stage, director Julius Onah called the film a “paranoid thriller.” Mackie was delighted with the project, saying, ‘I’m nervous! I’m excited. It’s everything I expected it to be.”
We last saw Mackie in the Disney+ series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” where he first took up the Captain America shield and debuted a new patriotic costume. The show starred Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, aka the Winter Soldier, and Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, a former CIA agent from the “Captain America” movies. It also introduced Wyatt Russell as the fake Captain America John Walker, who turned into the evil American agent. “Top Gun: Maverick” actor Ramirez was introduced as Joaquin Torres, a new ally to Wilson’s Cap, and Daniel Bruhl returned as the evil Baron Zemo in the series.
“Captain America: New World Order” is one of the upcoming Phase Five movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Luce” and “Cloverfield Paradox” filmmaker Onah will direct the film from a script written by Dalan Musson and Malcolm Spellman, who both wrote “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” Spellman is co-producing with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
