Will Sam Wilson officially become the new Captain America in Marvel’s Phase 4?

Anthony Mackie

At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) goes back in time to live out the rest of his days with the love of his life, Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). As an old man, he returns to the present, coming back to the demolished Avengers compound where he passes along his vibranium shield to Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), who has been one of his closest friends since Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The implication is that, now that Steve is done, Sam will take over as the new Captain America. However, although Mackie walked onto the SDCC stage carrying Cap’s shield, his series is still called The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. It seems unlikely that this would be the title if Sam had already retired the Falcon mantle and suited up as Captain America, which means that even though The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been confirmed to take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, it remains an unanswered question how long it’ll be before we see Sam fully transition to his new role.
