Accompanying the new title is a behind the scenes photo of Harrison Ford and Anthony Mackie. Mackie will be making his big screen debut as the superhero in Brave New World. His character Sam Wilson was previously known as Falcon before Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers passed the shield and moniker over to him after the events of Avengers: Endgame.

The Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier saw Sam contemplating whether he was willing to take over the role while working alongside Bucky Barnes aka Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). The series also debuted Wyatt Russell’s U.S. Agent. Both Winter Soldier and U.S. Agent are expected to appear in the upcoming Thunderbolts movie.
