Harrison Ford Will Star Opposite Anthony Mackie in “Captain America: New World Order” as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross.

It’s a done deal. Beginning with the Phase 5 release of Captain America: New World Order, Harrison Ford (the Indiana Jones film series) will replace General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Along with Shira Haas, Tim Blake Nelson, and Carl Lumbly in the cast, he will star alongside Anthony Mackie.

Long-running rumors about Ford’s Captain America casting included Jeff Sneider of The Ankle speaking about it recently. The subject of the upcoming movie is a secret, but Mackie will return as Sam Wilson, the character who took on the role of Captain America in the popular Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Director Julius Onah will handle this project.

Ford plays General Ross, a senior military commander who originally appeared in 1962 Marvel comics and eventually takes charge of the Thunderbolts, a group of anti-heroes. Prior to his passing in March at the age of 71, the actor takes on the part that Oscar winner William Hurt played in movies ranging from 2008’s The Incredible Hulk to 2021’s Black Widow.

Creator of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Malcolm Spellman collaborated with the show’s staff writer Dalan Musson on the story for the upcoming superhero film, which he will produce alongside Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. The fourth movie planned for Marvel’s Phase 5 is Captain America: New World Order, with Thunderbolts and Blade to follow. The movie is scheduled to hit theatres on May 3, 2024.

Ford, an Oscar contender for The Fugitive, is a screen legend recognized for roles in a variety of film series, including Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Blade Runner, Witness, Air Force One, Apocalypse Now, The Conversation, and American Graffiti. For the untitled fifth installment of the Indiana Jones trilogy, due out on June 30, he will reprise his role as the intrepid archaeologist Indiana Jones. He will also star in the upcoming Apple comedy series Shrinking.
