Avengers: Endgame was no doubt a real tear catcher, from Hawkeye’s loss of his family to the “I love you 3000” Black Widow’s heartbreaking death, to Iron Man sacrificing himself to save the world from the wrath of Thanos. And just when we thought the sad moments were over, we meet an older Captain America (played by Chris Evans) who finally hangs up the sign and passes it on to Sam Wilson. But according to Anthony Mackie, the Marvel bosses didn’t originally plan the scene that way.
in the Avengers: EndgameAfter the Avengers successfully defeated Thanos and buried Tony Stark, Cap volunteered to travel back in time to bring the Infinity Stones and Mjolnir back to their respective schedules. But while Bruce Banners, Bucky, and Sam wait, Cap doesn’t return as expected. While Sam is terrified that something has gone wrong and angrily asks Banner to bring Cap back, Bucky points out an older man sitting alone on a bench by the river, who turns out to be a much older version of his friend and ally Steve Rogers.
It shows, that Captain America decided not to return after placing the stones and hammer in their proper places and instead stayed in the past to live his life with Peggy Carter. While this became Chris Evans ‘farewell scene at the MCU, according to Marvel Studios’ initial plans he shouldn’t even be there.
Mackie recently appeared on The Jess Cagle Show on SiriusXM to promote his upcoming film, Outside wireand details of how three older actors got a really older version of Steve Rogers into play. But ultimately Marvel Studios chose Chris Evans instead.
“Well, it’s funny that they really wanted to cast an old guy to play Chris Evans. So they brought in like three actors. They’re like that, none of these, that’s how Chris won’t look like this when he’s old, he’s gonna, he’s like George Clooney. He’s turning 95 and still handsome, you know? So they brought a make-up team and dentures and make-up and made her an old man. And how good an actor Chris Did it actually work the way he did? He did it with his voice and everything. He did a great job. “
As you would recall, Captain America passed his shield on to Sam and not his best friend Bucky, knowing the former has the heart he needs to run it. Now we thought that this would effectively nullify any lingering doubts about who the new cap would be. Well, we got it wrong when Mackie made it clear that Sam never “agreed or said I was going to be Captain America,” and so the upcoming Disney + series is going to address that elephant in the room.
“The show, the idea of the show is basically you know, and at the end of Avengers: Endgame, Cap decided he was going to retire and asked me if I would take over the shield, but at no point I agreed or said that I would be Captain America? “Mackie clarified. “So the show goes the line about who will take over the shield and who will be Captain America if Steve doesn’t come back.”
So, yeah, while Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers will continue to be America’s Ass. We’re still in the dark about who the next Captain America will be … at least until The falcon and the winter soldier debuts on Disney + on March 19, 2021. The news to us over The Jess Cagle Show.
