Is Captain America: Brave New World introducing a new MCU mutant?

Hey there, Marvel fans! Exciting news coming your way – Shira Haas is all set to make her debut as the controversial superhero Sabra in the upcoming movie, “Captain America: Brave New World.” But wait, there’s more! According to a recent report, Sabra will be introduced as a mutant, making her the first hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to have powers since birth. Let’s dive into the details and find out what this means for the MCU.

The report, brought to us by scooper MyTimeToShineHello, reveals that although “Captain America: Brave New World” might not directly use the term “mutant,” Sabra will remain faithful to her comic book origins by possessing her powers from the moment she was born. This would make her a truly unique character in the MCU, as she would be the first to have inherent powers without the influence of external forces (unless we count aliens).

Now, let’s pause for a moment. Some might argue that both Ms. Marvel and Wanda Maximoff have already claimed the title of the first MCU “mutant” in previous projects. However, the distinction here is that Sabra would stand out as the first character whose abilities were not activated by outside forces. This sets her apart and aligns her more closely with the mutants from Marvel Comics.

What Can We Expect from “Captain America: Brave New World”?

As much as we’d love to dish out all the juicy details about the plot, unfortunately, it seems like the creators are determined to keep it under wraps. But here’s what we do know so far – the movie is currently in production and is set for release in May 2024. Exciting, right?

Now, let’s talk about the main villains in “Captain America: Brave New World.” Thunderbolt Ross, played by the legendary Harrison Ford, and The Leader, portrayed by Tim Blake Nelson, are expected to take center stage as the antagonists. Brace yourselves for some epic clashes and intense confrontations!

The talented Julius Onah is in the director’s chair for “Captain America: Brave New World,” bringing his unique vision to the project. The script, penned by Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson, promises to deliver an engaging story that will leave us on the edge of our seats.

Aside from Shira Haas as Sabra, the movie’s cast also includes the incredible Carl Lumbly as Isaiah Bradley, adding even more depth and complexity to the story. And just to keep us guessing, Xosha Roquemore has joined the project in an undisclosed role. The anticipation is real!

Mark your calendars, folks – “Captain America: Brave New World” is set to hit theaters on July 26, 2024.
