Sam Wilson has a lot of similarities to Steve Rogers, from whom he's taken the mantle of Captain America.

A desire for good, a refusal to give up, the unnatural ability to catch a vibranium Frisbee with his bare hands. But according to Anthony Mackie, the two Captains will have one glaring difference. He's going to have a foul mouth.

Mackie has played Wilson since 2014, taking the starred and striped shield from Rogers in 2019's Avengers: Endgame.

After a co-starring role in his 2021 Disney+ series Falcon and the Winter Soldier, he's officially the new Captain America.

He'll make his cinematic debut as the character in 2024's Captain America: New World Order, in which Mackie promises he will "curse a whole lot."

Rogers' Captain America was notoriously old-fashioned in his language, once deriding Tony Stark for uttering an expletive mid-fight. He never lived it down.

After their loss to Thanos in Infinity War, a more jaded Rogers swore more than fans had been accustomed to. Some fans disliked it, while some felt it made sense for a character who'd just lost a battle for half of existence.

Whether or not Rogers' cursing is in-character, fans are excited for Mackie's version – potty mouth and all. "I'm going straight Wesley Snipes in Blade," Mackie said.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has always strived to be family-friendly since its acquisition by Disney, but it's also pushed the limits.

There's always been light swearing, and several times in the past few years an f-bomb has been hinted. The most famous was Nick Fury's "Motherf-" before turning into dust in Infinity War's post-credit scene.

The ban on MCU f-bombs seems to be destined to break with the upcoming release of Deadpool 3.

The previous two Deadpool movies (released by Fox before Disney's acquisition) were firmly R-rated movies, with sexual content and a whole lot of swearing.

Mackie hasn't yet read a script for the film, according to his interview with Josh Horowitz. One "demand" he had for the film was that he has to utter, "I'm Captain America, b***h," after every heroic moment.

On top of the swearing, Mackie revealed one more thing in the first film with him as the lead. He said his "round brown" is "looking delicious in his spandex" – a callback to Endgame.

Scott Lang referred to Captain America's behind as "America's ass."

New World Order will be released in May 2024, with fans excited to see a new take on Marvel's most established hero.
