The Director Reveals When
While speaking to Collider, Julius Onah revealed that production for Captain America: New World would begin at the start of 2023. In addition, the director also revealed that they were well into preproduction for the film and were excited to dig into it:

The upcoming film will focus on Anthony Mackie’s Captain America as he fully embraces the mantle after the events of the Disney Plus series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Here is the synopsis for the series:

Directed by Kari Skogland from scripts written by showrunner Malcolm Spellman and Derek Kolstad, the series stars Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker/U.S. Agent. Desmond Chiam, Miki Ishikawa, Noah Mills, and Carl Lumbly also appear.
