Is the MCU Ready for Multiple (and Diverse) Captain Americas?

Rumor has it Marvel wants Captain Americas of different sexualities, genders, and ethnicities.


One of the most bittersweet moments that happened during this year's mega blockbuster Avengers: Endgame was seeing Steve Rogers (played by the internet's boyfriend Chris Evans) pass on the mantle of Captain America to Sam Wilson (a.k.a. Falcon, played by Anthony Mackie). 

While it was indeed the end of an epic, iconic era, according to some rumors, it was also a foreshadowing of the future of the role Captain America (or should we say Captain Americas, plural) will play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe...

According to an insider source from a report in the We Got This Covered blog, Marvel Studios has plans to introduce multiple Captain Americas into the future, upcoming phases of the MCU—a female version, a gay version, and a young, Black version.

It's worth noting that this doesn't necessarily mean a bunch of different people will be running around in red, white, and blue spandex with the same Captain America name (how confusing would that be, right?). We Got This Covered also speculates that this move means a diverse group of already established heroes will be carrying on the spirit and legacy of Captain America, with the female version being Peggy Carter as Captain Britain, the gay version being America Chavez's Miss America, and the young, Black Captain America version being Eli Bradley's Patriot from the Young Avengers. 

While Marvel Studios' efforts to become more diverse have been a long, long, long time coming, it's nice to see them actually start to make moves in regards to inclusion with Phase 4 and beyond. We hope this particular rumor is true, because we know Cap himself would totally approve.
