‘Captain America’ Sequel in Development with ‘Falcon and Winter Soldier’ Head Writer Malcolm Spellman

Looks like Captain America is taking to the sky.

Marvel Studios has tapped “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” head writer Malcolm Spellman to write the screenplay for a new “Captain America” movie, with “FAWS” staff writer Dalan Musson.

There are no further details about the possible project, but the news comes the same day that “FAWS” concludes its six-episode season on Disney Plus, which ends with several indications for where Spellman and Musson will be taking the franchise. (The rest of this story will deal with spoilers for that episode.)

In the finale, Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) finally accepts the mantle of Captain America, first handed to him by an elderly Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) at the end of “Avengers: Endgame.” Brandishing Cap’s shield and sporting a new red-white-and-blue costume, Sam saves the day alongside Steve’s BFF Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), and in the show’s final credits, the title is updated to read “Captain America and the Winter Soldier.”

Disney had no comment.

More to come.
