Tim Blake Nelson is reprising his role as the Leader in the upcoming Marvel Studios film Captain America: New World Order. The news was announced Saturday during D23 Expo's Studio Showcase panel for Marvel, Lucasfilm, and 20th Century Studios.
Nelson played Samuel Sterns (AKA the Leader) in 2008's Incredible Hulk, the sometimes-overlooked second film in Marvel Cinematic Universe history. On stage, Nelson said being asked to return was a delight.
"Marvel is part of cinema history, and that I get to be a part of that is an absolute honor," says the actor.
Captain America: New World Order stars Anthony Mackie as Captain America, and is directed by Julius Onah.
Captain America: New World Order is scheduled to debut May 3, 2024.
