‘Captain America: New World Order’: Harrison Ford Joins Cast as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross


Academy Award nominee Harrison Ford will be taking over the role of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross in the upcoming Marvel Studios film, Captain America: New World Order. Ford steps into the role that was previously portrayed by the late William Hurt, in films ranging from 2008’s The Incredible Hulk to last year’s Black Widow.

Ford is a long-time on-screen icon with major franchise roles ranging from Star Wars to Indiana Jones, and seemingly everything in between. He will reprise his role as treasure-hunting archaeologist Indiana Jones for the franchise’s fifth installment, which remains without an official title. The fifth installment is slated for release on June 30, 2023.

New World Order — which borrows its title from the first episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) — will see Sam Wilson fully in his new role as Captain America, following his journey to accept the mantle from Steve Rogers and make it his own in Avengers: Endgame and TFATWS. In addition to Mackie and Ford, the cast includes Tim Blake Nelson as The Leader (The Incredible Hulk) and TFATWS alums: Carl Lumbly as Isaiah Bradley and Danny Ramirez as Joaquín Torres (who we will see take on Sam’s previous title, Falcon); and Marvel Studios newcomer Shira Haas will appear as the Israeli superhero Sabra.

The plot for the fourth Captain America film from Marvel Studios is being kept under wraps for now.

Captain America: New World Order will release in theaters on May 03, 2024. Stay tuned with Nerds & Beyond for future updates.
