Anthony Mackie recently acknowledged that he experienced some star-struck moments while working with   Harrison Ford on Marvel’s upcoming movie Captain America: Brave New World. He revealed that Harrison Ford, who will be starring as General Ross, was equally excited about being a part of the movie.  Mackie, who is replacing Chris Evan as the new Captain America for the latest Captain America 4, shared in an interview with the Wrap, saying,  He really loved working with the 80-year-old Ford, saying it was was surprising to him how laid back and easygoing Ford was during the filming.  The 44-year-old Hollywood actor continued,

 “Seeing Harrison in his 80s excited about being part of the Marvel cinematic universe was really dope. It’s funny; he shows up, and everybody is kind of like, You don’t know what to do with Harrison Ford. Like, ‘Somebody gets Harrison water,’ but he wasn’t that at all.”

He added that they had a great time on the set while also expressing gratitude for being part of the MCU and bringing characters to life. Anthony said that he was a bit surreal at the start, but after knowing that Harrison was a cool dude, the scenes became much easier.  In June, the celebrity posted a photo with Harrison Ford, who played Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny for the final time. The post’s caption read, “You pay attention when Harrison Ford describes how kicking an ass should look! Lol…”

William Hurt has been portraying General Ross in several Marvel movies, such as  The Incredible Hulk and Captain America: Civil War, Black Widow, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame, where he is depicted as the Hulk’s major nemesis. In the comic books,  General Ross becomes the Red Hulk, so there is a  possibility that Ford will play a major villain in the new Captain America movie. It has since been revealed that General Ross is the President of the United States in Brave New World, which was previously named New World Order.

There have been speculations that Harrison Ford’s character, Thunderbolt Ross, could turn into his alter ego, Red Hulk, in Captain America: New World Order. Ford has neither confirmed nor denied the speculation. Meanwhile, fans might still get to see the Red Hulk on screen soon. When asked him if this was the plan for his character, the actor said replied, “What is the Red Hulk?” Marvel Studios’ Nate Moore didn’t give away much when asked about Harrison Ford becoming the Red Hulk. Moore expressed excitement about having stars like Han Solo and Indiana Jones in a movie, looking forward to scenes with Mackie and Ford together.

Captain America: Brave New World Continues Legacy with Sam Wilson

The film Captain America: Brave New World will be a continuation of the popular series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.  With Steve Rogers retiring as Captain America following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Sam Wilson has subsequently taken up the shield, and he will feature as ‘Cap’ in Captain America: Brave New World.

The series Falcon and Wilnder Soldier is a widely acclaimed series that offers a grounded and humorous approach. While other Marvel movies delve into cosmic or multiverse stories, Falcon and Winter Soldier stood out from them as they were initially focused on real-world issues. They also delved into the personal lives and emotions of Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, giving them a chance to grow beyond their roles.  the series also navigates deeper into the legacy role of Captain America and who will be carrying the shield.

Nate Moore says “Anthony Mackie’s portrayal of Captain America must be different from that of Chris Evans. I think, he’s not Steve Rogers and I think that’s a good thing,” said on the Phase Zero podcast.

A fourth film, Captain America: New World Order, is set for release in May 2024.
