Tim Roth's Abomination isn't the only Incredible Hulk character making a long-overdue return to the MCU. At D23 we learned Tim Blake Nelson will reprise the role of Samuel Sterns/The Leader in the upcoming Captain America: New World Order.

While it's great to see Marvel finally following up on that particular loose end, it is a little surprising The Leader is being positioned as a Captain America villain rather than headlining a new Hulk movie. But as it turns out, that's the whole point. The Leader is the last sort of enemy Sam Wilson is expecting to tussle with, and that's exactly what makes him so dangerous. Let’s quickly break down the Leader’s background and why he may actually make sense as the next big Captain America villain.

Captain America: New World Order hits theaters on May 3, 2024.
