The newest cast member of Marvel’s Captain America: New World Order, starring Anthony Mackie, is rising talent Xosha Roquemore. Additionally participating are Tim Blake Nelson, Harrison Ford, Danny Ramirez, Carl Lumbly, and Shira Haas. The film will be directed by Julius Onah, while Dalan Musson and Falcon and the Winter Soldier showrunner Malcolm Spellman will write the script.
The movie will premiere on May 3, 2024. Marvel declined to respond.
Following the series conclusion of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Mackie will resume his role as Sam Wilson, but he will no longer be portraying his alter identity Falcon. Instead, he will now serve as the next Captain America. There isn’t much else known about the project, and Roquemore’s new position is similarly under wraps.
Roquemore’s performance in Warner Bros.’ Space Jam: A New Legacy, which starred LeBron James, was her most recent acting gig, would make her part one of her largest roles to date. Atlanta, Black Monday, and Sherman’s Showcase are some of her other acting credits.
Most of the cast in Marvel’s next Captain America: New World Order movie from 2024 is made up of MCU alumni, including Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson and Tim Blake Nelson’s The Leader. However, there are a few prominent newbies thrown in, like Shira Haas as Sabra and Harrison Ford as Thaddeus Ross. Another actor has recently joined the cast of the film.
Xosha Roquemore has reportedly been cast in the film in a significant role, according to Deadline. The 38-year-old performer made her acting debut in a feature film in 2009’s Precious as Jo Ann. Since then, she has been in The Mindy Project, Black Monday, and Space Jam: A New Legacy as LeBron James’ mother. But for the time being, her part in the Marvel movie remains a mystery, as these things sometimes are in the early casting announcements.
