The fourth Captain America film is still far away in terms of release or even production, but that doesn’t mean Marvel Studios isn’t thinking about it.

In a recent appearance on’s Phase Zero podcast, Nate Moore — the VP of Production and Development at Marvel Studios — spoke about the next entry in the Captain America franchise, and talked briefly about how the film will be focusing on the fact that a new man is behind the shield.

“I think, he’s not Steve Rogers and I think that’s a good thing,” Moore said on Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, who has taken up the mantle of Captain America. “Because to me, this new Cap is Rocky. He’s going to be the underdog in any situation. He’s not a super soldier. He’s not a hundred years old. He doesn’t have the Avengers. What happens with this guy who announces publicly kind of, without the support, ‘I’m new Captain America.’ What happens next? I think is fascinating because he’s a guy. He’s a guy with wings and a shield, but he is a guy. So, we’re going to put him through the wringer and make him earn it, and see what happens when he is outweighed, outclassed, out-everything. What makes somebody Captain America? I’m going to argue it’s not being a super soldier. And I think we’re going to prove that with Mackie and Sam Wilson.”

Moore also spoke about how he broached the idea of The Falcon being more involved in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and talking with the writing team of Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely about just how crucial The Falcon was to the world of Captain America.

“I think Winter Soldier was interesting in that, I wasn’t the executive on the first movie, that was Stephen Broussard, who’s still with us and amazing,” Moore said. “And so, when I inherited that property, and because the first movie was a period and the second was going to be present day, I kind of came with the things that I loved about the character. And when I was a kid, I had a bunch of Captain America and Falcon comics. I knew Captain America as Captain America and Falcon more than I knew him as an individual. So, when I talked with Markus and McFeely, I just was like, obviously, ‘You’d be doing Captain America and Falcon, what else are you going to do?’ And that wasn’t necessarily the first thing they thought of, but it was something they were really interested in.”
