Marvel introduces Israeli superhero Sabra to the MCU

Scattered among the dozens of announcements and revelations made by Marvel as a part of D23 Expo was the news that the cast of the next Captain America: New World Order will contain several surprising additions. Anthony Mackie, Marvel’s new Captain America, is joined in the film by a few returning actors from his latest The Falcon and the Winter Soldier TV series, including Carl Lumbly, who played Isaiah Bradley, and Danny Ramirez, who played Joaquin Torres, the young hero who inherits the Falcon’s mantle from Mackie after he becomes the new Cap.

But there are other new members of Captain America cast of the film. Tim Blake Nelson will appear as the Leader, the famous Hulk villain from Marvel Comics who first debuted in the MCU in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk but haven’t seen a movie or TV show since. New world order will also feature Sabra, one of the few notable Israeli superheroes from Marvel Comics. The character will be portrayed by Shira Haasthe Israeli actress who gained international attention for her role in the 2020 Netflix series Unorthodox.

The character Sabra debuted in the early 1980s, in the pages of The Incredible Hulk. She was created by writer Bill Mantlo and artist Sal Buscema,

Although there is no guarantee that the MCU version will retain this aspect of her character, Sabra – real name Ruth Bat-Seraph – is a mutant like Wolverine and the rest of the X-Men. There have been a few teases of mutants being added to the MCU in recent months, including a cameo by Professor Xavier in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and the revelation that the MCU’s Ms. Marvel’s Kamala Khan is a mutant rather than an Inhuman.

Sabra’s mutant powers include super strength, speed, agility, and endurance, and she can also fly through the use of special technology. In Marvel Comics, she has fought the Hulk a few times and has also spent some time working with international members of the X-Men. How she fits into the plan for Captain America: New World Order has not yet been revealed.

Captain America: New World Order is scheduled to premiere in theaters on May 3, 2024.
