Harrison Ford is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, taking on the role of General Ross in Captain America: New World Order. The role was previously played by the late actor William Hurt.
Captain America: New World Order stars Anthony Mackie reprising his longtime Marvel character of Sam Wilson. The movie will take place after the events of 2021’s Marvel Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which saw Wilson finally accept the shield and mantle of Captain America.
Ford will also play Ross in Thunderbolts, which is set to be directed by Jake Schreier. Hurt appeared as Ross in 2008’s Incredible Hulk and returned for 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and subsequent Marvel movies; he died earlier this year at age 71.
Ford is also set to reprise his role as the intrepid archeologist Indiana Jones in Indiana Jones 5, due out June 30, 2023.
