There’s a fourth Captain America film on the way, and Malcolm Spellman, the showrunner behind The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, is set to develop the next installment. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Spellman will be writing the script for the fourth Captain America film, alongside Dalan Musson, another staff writer for the Marvel and Disney Plus show.

Given that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier just wrapped up today, this should be welcome news for its fans. Starring Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, the show explored the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame, after Steve Rogers left Captain America’s shield to Sam and prompted him to take up the mantle. The after-credits scene in the show’s final episode hinted at something new to come, but we didn't know what it was quite yet. Now it’s looking like we’ll get a movie.

Polygon has reached out to Disney for comment but did not hear back in time for press.
