One of the most well-known comic book characters and highest-grossing box office movie franchises looks to be getting a new film.

What Happened:

'Captain America' could be returning to the big screen soon, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that a fourth film is in the works.

The latest film for the franchise comes from Malcolm Spellman, the showrunner of “Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” which streams on Disney Plus.

The film is likely to feature the storyline of Sam Wilson, played by Anthony Buckie, from the current streaming series.

Disney and Marvel remain tight-lipped and have not confirmed the movie.

The movie could be one of many from Walt Disney Company (DIS) under the Marvel brand in the future. The question will be if the movie hits the big screen and is seen in theaters or is launched on the streaming service from the media giant.
