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

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

A fan asked Feige, “Are we ever going to see a showdown between Sam Wilson’s Captain America and Alexei’s Red Guardian?”
He replied, “I’d like to see that.. what about you guys? @AnthonyMackie @DavidKHarbour -KF #BlackWidowWatchParty.”
Captain America has previously taken on warriors from other countries, such as the French Batroc (Georges St-Pierre), the German Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) and the British Flag-Smasher (Erin Kellyman).
In the comic book source material, Cap has also rebelled against Red Guardian – its equivalent from Russia.

Also during the events of Black Widow, Red Guardian himself boasted that he had already fought against Captain America in the 1980s.
While this story most likely wasn’t true, it would still be exciting to see him take the new actor under the mantle.
Even more interesting is the fact that Sam Wilson doesn’t have a super soldier serum in his body, meaning he would be extremely outmatched if he went up against Red Guardian.
Despite this, Captain America isn’t one to get out of a fight, so he could stand a chance.

Red Guardian’s return could be more likely than initially anticipated after Harbor 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’d love to see more Red Guardian coming. And I’d love it if you guys would love to see more Red Guardian, because that always helps the cause.
“Love the character. There are so many things you could do with him, right? There’s a 25-year gap 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.”
Harbor continued: “And why isn’t he fighting Thanos? Where is he at that time? What happens then?
“When [Natasha] dies, what happens then? I mean it’s very interesting to me and I hope there’s interest at other levels and maybe we’ll see more.”
Captain America will next be seen in his own solo film, which has not yet been given a release date.
Black Widow is now in theaters and available on Disney Plus with Premier Access.
