Sam Wilson (played by Anthony Mackie) has only been Captain America for a few months, but he has already got a few bad guys lining up to fight him. Marvel Studios executive Feige recently spoke out about Cap’s future, and how it could connect to the recently released Black Widow.

Feige recently held a Q&A session on the official Marvel Studios Twitter account where he was bombarded with a number of questions about Natasha Romanoff’s first solo movie.
During the chat, he was asked: “Will we ever see the return of Red Guardian? #BlackWidowWatchParty.”
The exec replied: “I certainly want too. -KF #BlackWidowWatchParty.” (sic)
That wasn’t enough for the insatiable fans, however, as they began prodding him with further questions about the connection between Red Guardian (David Harbour) and Captain America.

One fan asked Feige: “Are we ever going to see a showdown between Sam Wilson’s Captain America and Alexei’s Red Guardian?”
He responded: “I’d like to see that.. how about you guys? @AnthonyMackie @DavidKHarbour -KF #BlackWidowWatchParty.”
Captain America has previously gone head-to-head with warriors from other countries, such as the French Batroc (Georges St-Pierre), Germany’s Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) and the British Flag-Smasher (Erin Kellyman).
In the comic book source material Cap has also gone up against Red Guardian – his equivalent from Russia.
Red Guardian’s return could be more likely than originally anticipated after Harbour spoke candidly about his character’s future in the MCU.
In an interview with Variety, the Stranger Things actor was asked if he would return, to which he replied: “They don’t let you say these things!
“I would love for there to be more Red Guardian. And I would love for you guys to love for there to be more Red Guardian because that always helps the cause.
“I love the character. There’s so many things you could do with him, right? There’s this gap of 25 years where we don’t know who he was, his version of events as opposed to the actual version of events, and what happens to him after this movie.”
Harbour continued: “And why isn’t he fighting Thanos? Where is he in that time? What happens then?
“When [Natasha] dies, what happens then? I mean, it’s very interesting to me and I hope that there is interest on other levels and maybe we’ll see some more.”
Captain America will next be seen in his own solo film, which has not yet been given a release date.
Black Widow is out in cinemas now, and available on Disney Plus with Premier Access.
