This is the new Captain America, as teased by Marvel last week,

Bleeding Cool has been repeatedly informed from well-connected sources that he will be Sam Wilson, The Falcon, as we presumed from the eight month future seen in Time Runs Out.

As Steve Rogers suffers the effects of the removed Super Soldier Serum in his comic, The Falcon will step up and take the role, with Rick Remender and Stuart Immonen as the creative team on the book.

The Falcon gained greater prominence this year on the back of the Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie, played by Anthony Mackie.

Indeed they do. And expect a big announcement from a major media source when they decide to go public about it.

This would not, however, be the first black Captain America, though it would be the first to have the lead in the Captain America title.

And as for the movies, while many consider that Bucky, The Winter Soldier played by Sebastian Stan, is the natural candidate to take over the role from Steve Rogers played by Chris Evans, as the character does the comic book – but might this indicate that Anthony Mackie could be the next Captain America in the movies as well?

That might be something interesting to speculate about at least…
