Thaddeus Ross To Be US President In Captain America: New World Order

Harrison Ford is taking over Thaddeus Ross in the MCU, and he starts with Captain America: New World Order where Ross is the US President. Kevin Feige confirmed the rumor in an interview with EW that Ross will be the president of the US in the forthcoming movie.

“This is certainly a big part for Thaddeus Ross,” Feige said. “He’s the president of the United States in the film. And with Harrison, you think about Air Force One, and you think about some of his confrontations with the president in Clear and Present Danger. There’s a dynamic between President Ross and Sam Wilson. They have a history together, but in this film, we’ll be seeing the dynamic between Captain America and the president of the United States in a way that is just incredible.”

Ford took over the role of Ross following William Hurt’s passing in March of last year. He is also set to reprise that role in Thunderbolts, which releases on July 26th, 2024 — just over two months after Captain America: New World Order, which arrives on May 3rd, 2024.
