Harrison Ford’s Marvel Role Creates Spider-Man Plot Hole
Harrison Ford may be on the verge of releasing his latest Indiana Jones movie, but next year it’s coming to the big screen in another major franchise: The Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was recently announced that the iconic Star Wars actor would be joining the upcoming fourth Captain America movie: Captain America: New World Order. And Marvel boss Kevin Feige has just revealed who he’ll be playing, but his presence creates a bit of a plot hole in the ever-expanding universe.
Feige revealed overnight that Ford will play Thaddeus Ross, the President of the United States.
He said: “With Harrison, you think about Air Force One, and you think about some of his run-ins with the President in Clear and Present Danger. In this movie, we’re going to see the dynamic between Captain America and the President of the United States from a way that’s just amazing.”
However, if Parker has seen at least one of the Star Wars movies, he will have seen the president playing the rogue and adventurer Han Solo on the big screen.
Of course, this isn’t the first time casting choices have interfered with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Iron Man referenced The Big Lebowski in Avengers Endgame, despite the fact that his nemesis, Jeff Bridges, was the star of the film.

Iron Man brought up Legolas from Lord of the Rings again in Avengers, starring Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, and Karl Urban, who have joined the MCU as Hela, Red Skull, and Skurge, respectively.
Also, in Civil War, Stark called Bucky Barnes the Manchurian candidate, a 1959 novel and 2004 film starring Falcon actor Anthony Mackie.
Despite this oversight, Feige was supportive of Ford’s upcoming performance in Captain America: New World Order. He noted that the 80-year-old star was “accepting the role” of Thaddeus Ross.
The Marvel boss also said it had been his “dream for years” to cast Ford in the role. He said it came about when Marvel boss Jon Favreau cast the star in the 2011 film Cowboys and Aliens alongside former James Bond actor Daniel Craig.
“I was always very jealous of it,” Feige said, as reported by evening standard. “So to finally have him in the MCU is just amazing. It’s like I could cross that off my wish list.”
However, the movie is still a long way off. Captain America: New World Order will be released in 2024 and will see the return of Falcon, Bucky, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
This will also be the first Captain America movie not to star Chris Evans as the titular hero.
Captain America: New World Order hits theaters on May 3, 2024.
