Marvel Comics to name a new Captain America this Fall

Jul. 8, 2014by: Alex Maidy

As we have pondered the big screen future of Captain America in the wake of Chris Evans revealing his post-superhero film plans, Marvel Comics are moving forward with yet another "shocking" character recasting. In the recent pages of CAPTAIN AMERICA issue #21, events have led to Steve Rogers losing the super soldier serum that has kept him young and strong, resulting in rapid aging. The now frail, 90 year old Rogers can no longer wear the star-spangled uniform so a new hero will need to don the mantle of Captain America. But, who will it be?

Marvel has shared an interview with writer Rick Remender who explained what will happen to Steve Rogers for the next phase of the story, titled "The Tomorrow Soldier":

“He’s waging war from a room rather than the front lines, which is new for Steve,” said Remender. “Steve’s going to continue to play a role in the series as a mentor and tactician and eye in the sky, runing ops and things. He’s got all his faculties and is still the super soldier he earned the right to be called; he just lacks the physical form.”

There is a shortlist of characters who could become the next Captain America but odds are it will be partner Sam Wilson, aka Falcon. Falcon was played by Anthony Mackie in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. This is an intriguing choice because the long term contract given to Sebastian Stan seems to indicate the Bucky Barnes actor may take over from Chris Evans after AVENGERS 3, but this could also open the door for Mackie to be the first African American Captain.

Remender promises a lot of twists and a character betrayal leading up to the naming of the new Captain, but stay tuned for possible big screen implications. CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER hits Blu-ray on September 9th.

this sounds an awful lot like Batman Beyond. will he be talking to the new Cap on a headset while the young buck battles it out with new versions of old villains? hmm

People are so dumb. Comics have nothing to do with the movie universe.

The comics are replacing Captain with a character other than Falcon and Bucky (who already was Captain for a while). Just because the movies are setting up the series in one direction, it does mean that they are influencing the comics at all.

"Steves going to continue to play a role in the series as a mentor and tactician and eye in the sky, runing ops and things"
So like... Bruce Wayne in Batman Beyond?

Yay! Captain America 3 will be another movie about a hero loosing his powers, probably to have then returned by Avengers 3!

But if anyone can pull it off it's Marvel

I read the other day that Falcon will take over for Capt A. Dont know if its true or not. Also if he does take over, he wont be the first Black Capt America, but the second. The first Capt America was black, before Steven Rogers.

I thought

Captain America 3 would be followed up by a Black Widow movie.

I love Mackie's version of Falcon, but I hope regarding the films, Bucky takes the mantle from Steve Rodgers and becomes the next Captain America.

Nothing is set in stone in terms of comic book characters. I'm sure at some point Marvel will bring Steve Rogers back.

I doubt this is really a permanent thing in the Marvel Universe, since what is besides the status quo. I think my two cents is that I love the Falcon as he is; I'd still like the character in this situation but I would miss the iconic hero.

In the comics, the Judas could be a character named Jet Black. She was a villain. Then, Cap taught her a bit about being a hero. Now, her evil father has returned in the comics. Therefore, ala Talia Ghul, she might become a villain again.
Falcon should become Captain America. Since the 1970s, Marvel has had to explain a million and one times that Falcon is Cap's PARTNER, not his SIDEKICK. Make Falcon the next Captain America. Then, Sam Wilson can be like Terry McGinness, the new Batman, and

They will be what? PARTNERS.

Marvel has already spoiled who it is with upcoming covers of other issues.

I give it a year...

Or two, before it goes back to the usual status quo... Just like what they'll do with Wolverine.
By the way Mackie MIGHT become the first black CapAm ON SCREEN... In the comics, the VERY FIRST CapAm WAS INDEED African-American...

Why does the decision for a new Captain America all boil down to actor's contracts with Marvel. Sebastian Stan's 9 picture deal with Marvel could mean they are going to make Bucky the Captain in future installments like they did in the past. This change doesn't necessarily mean moves for the MCU. Just changing up the status quo for a few months in Marvel Comics.

well the real question is

How long does it take them to reverse it all back to the regular status quo? Which they will.
