As evidenced by the set photos that have emerged online recently, production is already underway for the upcoming MCU film Captain America: New World Order, which is set to be Anthony Mackie's first solo movie as the titular hero after taking the mantle as the end of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
So far, most of the plot details remain under wraps although Marvel has hinted that there is a lot of government conspiracy involved in the story. They'll also pick up some of the leftover storylines from The Incredible Hulk as characters such as The Leader and Betty Ross will also appear in the film.
Now, more details are starting to emerge about the film's plot details thanks to a recent report from The Hot Mic's Jeff Sneider, who laid out some scoops that he heard regarding Captain America: New World Order including a potential connection to the mutants' incoming arrival in the MCU.
First, he reported that Red Hulk will appear in the film and hinted that Harrison Ford's Thaddeus Ross is the one who transforms into the character. He also revealed that Julia Louis-Dreyfus' character Valentina "Val" Allegra de Fontaine is also going to show up in the film aside from Thunderbolts.
Sneider alleged that Val will work with five other villains to form the Serpent Society group and their main mission is to obtain a special metal that is NOT vibranium. Lastly, he reported that the film might have some tie-ins to the X-Men.
So far, Marvel Studios has not made any confirmations regarding these alleged plot details about the film so we may have to take it with a grain of salt. However, they are known for being highly secretive about their projects so we may not hear a confirmation until the trailers or the film itself releases.
It is interesting to hear these details about the film's potential plot, especially the connection to the X-Men since it is an indication that the MCU is slowly introducing the mutants into their universe as more projects pass by and it is curious to see how it will all play out if that is actually the case.
