Falcon And The Winter Soldier Showrunner Working On Captain America 4

Marvel is bringing back the Captain America film franchise.

Disney and Marvel Studios are having Malcolm Spellman develop the fourth installment in the series, which is tentatively called Captain America 4. It will take place after the Disney+ show The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which Spellman created and ran as showrunner. Also working on writing the script is Dalan Musson, who worked as a staff writer on the television series. No director is currently attached to the project.

Malcolm Spellman

No official cast has bounced for the project however the last episode of the Disney+ show opened up plenty of possibilities as to who will take up the Captain America mantle next. Previously, Chris Evans played the superhero Steve Rogers in several Avengers films plus Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War.

Chances are likely that Anthony Mackie, who plays Sam Wilson/Falcon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be involved. Falcon currently wields the shield, so that’s the most natural conclusion. Mackie’s co-star, Sebastian Stan is also likely to appear as Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier. Seeing how there have been multiple Captain Americas in Marvel lore, and even in the MCU, there are a lot of interesting ways for the film to go.

Finally there are rumors that Chris Evans is in talks to return to the MCU as Steve Rogers but in a separate project. It’s said that Evans would likely appear “in at least one Marvel property, with the door open for a second film” and that the Mackie-led Captain America 4 is separate.

Mondo Unveils Fantastic Four Line

Mondo is excited to announce their official license for Marvel’s First Family: The Fantastic Four. For the first time ever, and available at MondoShop.com beginning March 5, the pop culture shop unveils products across categories for the popular comic characters. 

Created by the legendary Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, these “heroes with hang-ups” and their iconic cast of supporting characters represent a beloved corner of the Marvel Universe and are truly near and dear to Mondo’s comic-loving hearts. More than any other of Marvel’s Silver Age heroes, the Fantastic Four transcends traditional costumed heroics, instead focusing on stories about a tight knit family of adventurers.

   

The new collection begins with a pair of limited edition posters, each of which will also have an even more limited variant. “Fantastic Four: Galactus,” from artist Killian Eng, features the planet-eating cosmic entity that’s not exactly a villain but also in no way a hero. The $50 full-color print will be available in an edition of 225.

The $60 black-and-white variant will feature an edition of only 100. Both posters measure 24×36.

The other pair of posters, titled “Fantastic Four: Silver Surfer,” comes from artist Dániel Taylor. As the title suggests, these posters focus on the Silver Surfer, a frequent player in Fantastic Four stories who was first introduced in the comics as a herald of Galactus. The blue-tinted $50 version of Taylor’s print will be available in an edition of 175.

The $75 variant, which splashes in some purple alongside the blue, will be available in an edition of 100.

These posters should ship sometime in May.

In addition to posters, there are a handful of other offerings for the First Family. Mondo is happy to finally be able to meet the amazing demand for Tom Whalen’s longstanding Marvel enamel pin series with all-new pins featuring brilliant scientist: Mr. Fantastic, the world’s most powerful woman: The Invisible Woman, her hot-headed brother: The Human Torch, and everyone’s favorite cantankerous pilot: The Thing! To stand alongside them is a gorgeous, polished metal Silver Surger pin, against the Lifebringer, Galactus, in a tastefully oversized pin. Finally, every good hero needs a great villain, and there truly is none greater than Doctor Doom!

And last but not least, Mondo is excited to announce an additional Marvel inspired vinyl slipmats with a new Fantastic Four slipmat! Designed by Bruce Yan, this slipmat features the team’s iconic ‘4’ logo on Side A, and the infamous Doctor Doom on Side B.
