Captain America 4 Could Finally Deliver on Kevin Feige’s Joke From Civil War

Apr 12, 2023

Marvel Cinematic Universe head Kevin Feige may finally fulfill his 2014 joke regarding Captain America: Civil War’s title in the latest addition to the MCU Captain America: New World Order, rumors suggest (via ScreenRant). The 4th Captain America film, scheduled to premiere in May 2024, will see Anthony Mackey taking over the mantle of Captain America in the aftermath of Disney+’s Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

A decade after Civil War, rumors suggest that the new film could finally introduce Marvel Comics’ infamous Serpent Society to the MCU. Back in 2014, Feige misdirected fans as to the storyline of the second Captain America film by initially introducing the project as Captain America: Serpent Society. Of course, this proved to be little more than a joke. However, new rumors suggest that New World Order could finally return to the Serpent Society for the latest Captain America project.
Coming to the big screen as part of the MCU’s Phase 5, Captain America: New World Order will see Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson joined by a cast of old and new faces in the MCU. Returning characters are set to include Tim Blake Nelson’s The Leader, who originally appeared in The Incredible Hulk, as well as Carl Lumbly reprising his role as Isaiah Bradley. In addition, new faces are set to include Harrison Ford, who will be taking over for the late William Hurt as Thunderbolt Ross, and Shira Haas debuting the role of Sabra, a new mutant hero hailing from Israel.

Perhaps the most compelling rumor about the new film, however, is the casting of Xosha Roquemore in a currently undisclosed role. Roquemore could be playing any number of roles in the MCU, though theories strongly suggest that the actress will be debuting the character of Rachel Leighton, better known as Diamondback of the Serpent Society, leading fans to believe that the organization could be making its way to the MCU in 2024.

How likely is a Serpent Society debut in Captain America 4?

As Captain America: New World Order gets closer and closer to the filming stage of production, rumors about the film’s story have begun to circulate among fans, motivated in part by Marvel’s various casting calls for the new project. Released casting calls suggest that a major player from the Serpent Society could be set to make an appearance.

The character, known primarily as Diamondback, has already appeared in one Marvel project, Luke Cage. A re-cast of the role could be on the cards for the Captain America fourquel after Marvel released an active casting call naming the role. Hit-and-miss MCU insider Daniel Richtman claims that the casting call is looking for a “female, mid-to-early 30s, open ethnicity lead” to play the role of Diamondback.

Female, early to mid 30s. Open ethnicity Lead.
Opposite Anthony, a villain but also possibly a love interest, there will be an option for more after this film. WILL BE A STRAIGHT OFFER”

For those who are not as familiar with the extensive lore of Marvel Comics, Diamondback was initially introduced as a villain in the Luke Cage comics. While Rachel Leighton’s Diamondback originally debuted in 1985 and has been an on-and-off love interest of Steve Rogers’ Captain America, new rumors suggest that New World Order’s version of Diamondback could be a potential love interest for Ford’s Thunderbolt Ross instead.

At the moment, Roquemore’s role remains undisclosed. Still, with Richtman’s suggestion that the MCU has been actively recruiting an actress for the position of Diamondback, it seems likely that the Serpent Society could be slithering their way into the MCU as early as next year.
