President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige drew parallels between the upcoming film and the critically acclaimed ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier' from 2014.

Feige described Brave New World as “another fast-paced, relatively grounded action thriller” and “there’s no aliens.” Instead, the film delves into the intrigue within the political sphere, as Wilson discloses to Ross, “Our inner circle has been compromised.”

The chemistry between the President and the new Captain America is not without tension, as evidenced by their sharp exchange: “You’re not Steve Rogers,” Ross remarks, to which Wilson firmly responds, “You’re right, I’m not.”

Set for release on February 14, 2025, Captain America: Brave New World carries a huge load. In recent years Marvel Studios has faced challenges in attracting audiences to theatres, with recent titles like ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,’ ‘Eternals,’ and ‘The Marvels’.
