Captain America: New World Order star Anthony Mackie reveals just how far Marvel Studios is going in order to prevent leaks from the movie. Captain America: New World Order will mark the first time that the franchise will not be led by Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, with Mackie’s Sam Wilson now donning the mantle after becoming the new Captain America in the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Because of the movie’s importance, Marvel is tightening up security.
Mackie revealed on The Kelly Clarkson Show that Captain America: New World Order has a pretty intricate system in place to prevent leaks.
The title Captain America: New World Order‘s meaning explicitly positions the movie to shake up the MCU, as Mackie’s Captain America deals with a number of characters from all over the globe. One of the major plot points of the movie will be related to the reveal of the new United States president in the MCU: Harrison Ford’s Thunderbolt Ross. Check out Mackie’s full quote below:

What Rumors Say About Captain America: New World Order
Mackie’s Captain America had an important scene in the final episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, where he talked directly to a US politician, urging him to do better. Captain America: New World Order looks poised to continue that theme, with Marvel Studios casting Ford as the new Thunderbolt Ross for the MCU’s future following the passing of actor William Hurt. The casting is significant, as Ford is a Hollywood legend, and him joining the MCU hints at a bright future for President Ross.
Captain America: New World Order rumors claim that Ross will become the Red Hulk in the movie, a choice that seems like the natural, expected outcome of the recasting. While the idea of having Ford act in a motion capture suit might seem unlikely at first glance, the actor has talked about how he took the role in order to have fun doing something he has never done before. Besides, the Hulk’s missed MCU opportunity with The Leader will finally be corrected in the new Captain America, and it will likely connect with Ford’s Thunderbolt Ross.
Tim Blake Nelson originally played scientist Samuel Sterns in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. By the end of the movie, the character had come into contact with the Hulk’s blood, which started to transform him into the Marvel Comics villain known as The Leader. Hurt’s return as Thunderbolt Ross in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War opened up the precedent for The Leader’s impending Captain America: New World Order role. The villain is rumored to play into the movie’s alleged Hulk-heavy plot, which would see Ford’s Ross become the MCU’s Red Hulk — maybe going on to appear as such in the Thunderbolts movie.
