Joe Quesada unveiled the identity of the new Captain America on The Colbert Report, announced that the man taking up the mantle of Captain America would be Sam Wilson.

Colbert ask if this would be just in the comics or also be shown in the movies and Quesada said “strictly in the comics”

The image they showed, revealed Sam in a Captain America uniform, holding a shield, along with still having his wings.  So it’ll be interesting to see if that remains or if he eventually gets rid of the wings.

Of course with Avengers: Age of Ultron coming out next year, it’s a safe bet that Steve Rogers will be slinging the shield again in a year or so.

Updated with official press release:

MARVEL ANNOUNCES THE NEW CAPTAIN AMERICA!

Sam Wilson, Formerly The Falcon, is the New Captain America in All-New Captain America #1

New York, NY – July 17th, 2014 – Marvel is excited to announce that beginning in November 2014, the title of Captain America will be passed to Sam Wilson, The Falcon, in the pages of All-New Captain America #1 by series writer Rick Remender (Captain America, Uncanny Avengers) and series artist Stuart Immonen (All-New X-Men).

Announced on “The Colbert Report” by Joe Quesada, “Sam Wilson…The Falcon, is the new Captain America.”

Addressing how Sam Wilson will follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, Steve Rogers, Remender says, “Sam wants to lead by example. To help people see their own selfishness and to turn it around. To build better communities, to never forget the little guy.”  Remender continues, “Sam follows his heart and his belief in what the American dream means and how it belongs to everyone.”

The question remains: what happens with the original Captain America, Steve Rogers? Executive Editor Tom Brevoort says, “Steve’s spirit is as willing as ever, but his body is no longer up to the task of being Captain America. So he’ll employ his skills as the new Cap’s remote strategic advisor, running Cap’s missions from his headquarters in Avengers Mansion and providing Sam with technical support and field information from a distance. He’ll also tutor Sam in how to throw the shield, a skill that’s deceptively difficult for the new Cap to master. So Steve will continue to be a vital part of the series moving ahead.”

All-New Captain America #1 will be available this November in all local comic book retailers and available in the Marvel Digital Comics Store.
