Marvel Studios’ Neal Moore recently explained what makes Sam Wilson an interesting version of Captain America.
“I think he’s not Steve Rogers and I think that’s a good thing,” Moore said. “Because to me, this new Cap is Rocky. He’ll be the underdog in any situation. He’s not a super soldier. He’s not a hundred years old. He doesn’t have the Avengers. That what’s going on with this guy who publicly announces, without support, “I’m the new Captain America. What happens next? I think it’s fascinating because he’s a guy. C he’s a guy with wings and a shield, but he’s a guy. So we’re going to put him to the test and make him win, and see what happens when he’s outdone, outclassed, outmatched by everything. What makes someone Captain America? I’m going to say it’s not being a super soldier. And I think we’re going to prove it with Mackie and Sam Wilson.
The film will be written by Malcolm Spellman, who was the creator and head writer of The Falcon and the Winter Soldierand Dalan Musson, who also worked on the Disney+ series.
