'Captain America: New World Order' is directed by Julius Onah and it stars Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson AKA Captain America. Mackie was last seen in 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier' in 2021. The movie also stars Harrison Ford as Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross, Danny Ramirez as Joaquin Torres/ Falcon, Tim Blake Nelson as Samuel Sterns/ The Leader, Carl LumblyIsaiah Bradley, Shira Haas as Sabra and Xosha Roquemore in an unnamed role.

Who is Betty Ross?
Though most of the details regarding 'Captain America: New World Order' are under wraps, recent reports from The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Liv Tyler is returning to the MCU and will reprise her role as the scientist Betty Ross. Tyler was last seen in 'The Incredible Hulk' in 2008. This marks Tyler's return after a 15-year gap.
Betty Ross is a professor at Culver University and a scientist, who assisted Bruce Branner in the e Bio-Tech Force Enhancement Project. Tyler had a crush on Banner and was an accomplice to him. However, Betty and Banner parted ways after the abomination battle. Including Betty in the next phase of MCU was crucial because she is none other than Thaddeus's daughter and introducing her character would make a strong foundation for the upcoming 'Thunderbolts' movie as well.
The connection from the past
It is to be noted that Betty was introduced in the Edward Norton-starrer, before the introduction of MCU. However, by introducing Abomination in 2021's 'Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' and Disney+'s 'She-Hulk: Attorney at Law', Abomination's character arc was made canon in the MCU. This would mean Tyler's character arc has been retained. On the other hand, if the MCU is following the source material, it is to be remembered that Betty is the famous 'Red Hulk' in the comics and with the upcoming 'Thunderbolts' lineup, it is hard to ignore that possibility as well.
