Captain America: Brave New World is without question one of the most interesting Marvel movies of the MCU’s Phase 5. Barring any schedule changes, it will be the penultimate adventure of the current chapter, leading right into Thunderbolts. Titled initially New World Order, Captain America 4 got a title change in early June 2023.

The fourth film in the Captain America franchise will deliver a new Cap, with Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) now behind the shield. MCU fans might have already seen him accept the Captain America role in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney Plus. That’s a show you have to watch to understand why Sam found it so hard to accept the offer Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) made at the end of Avengers: Endgame.

But that’s not the only exciting thing about the next Captain America. The film will feature a fantastic cast playing key characters involved in events that could directly affect Thunderbolts. That crossover premieres only a few months later. Captain America 4 will also likely impact Avengers 5 and Avengers 6, which will bring the Multiverse Saga to a close.

In what follows, we’ll cover everything you need to know about Captain America: Brave New World, including the release date, the Disney Plus premiere, trailers, and the cast. We won’t mention any of the exciting leaks until the very end of this post. You’ll want to avoid our “Leaks and rumors” section if you’re not partial to Marvel spoilers. Otherwise, that’s where you’ll get all the links to the juicy Brave New World rumors.

Captain America: Brave New World release date

Captain America: Brave New World will hit cinemas on July, 26th, 2024. Marvel delayed the initial release date (May 3rd, 2024) by nearly three months in mid-June 2023, just as the film was in production. Marvel delayed a slew of Phase 5 and Phase 6 titles, not just the new Captain America adventure.

The release date change dropped soon after the new title reveal. About a year ahead of the film’s original release date, a rumor emerged claiming that Marvel might change the title of Captain America 4. We now know it’ll be called Brave New World instead of New World Order.

Captain America: Brave New World Disney Plus release date

Trying to determine Brave New World‘s Disney Plus release date is more difficult. The movie should hit Disney’s streaming service after a minimum guaranteed 45-day theatrical window. But if Captain America 4 turns out to be a must-see blockbuster that dominates the box office, then its Disney Plus release could be delayed. That’s what Marvel did with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in late 2022.

Since then, Bob Iger took the reins as CEO of Disney. And other Marvel movies saw delayed releases on the company’s streaming service.

Captain America: Brave New World cast

The Captain America: Brave New World cast is what might make the movie become a hit with MCU fans. Here are all the characters confirmed for the sequel so far: 

  • Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie)
  • Thunderbolt Ross (Harrison Ford)
  • The Leader (Tim Blake Nelson)
  • Danny Ramirez (Joaquin Torres)
  • Liv Tyler (Betty Ross)
  • Isaiah Bradley (Carl Lumbly)
  • Sabra (Shira Haas)
  • TBD (Seth Rollins)

Captain America: Brave New World trailers

The first Captain America: Brave New World trailer should arrive about six months before the film’s release. We could see it in late 2023, attached to some of the year’s big Christmas releases. That’s just speculation at this point, but that’s the likeliest window for the first teaser.

WARNING: We’re going to cover leaks and rumors next, so spoilers might follow below.
