The new Captain America has not yet been determined in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is according to actor Anthony Mackie, who plays Sam Wilson, aka Falcon, in the MCU. Mackie will repeat the role in the upcoming Disney + series The falcon and the winter soldier. While many fans have assumed that Sam would take on Steve Rogers’ mantle as the new Captain America, this is not the case. At least not now.
Anthony Mackie is currently promoting his latest film Outside the wirecoming out on Netflix this Friday. During a recent interview on The Jess Cagle ShowMackie addressed his character’s status as Captain America, stating that the inclusion of the shield, whoever does this, will be a central element of The falcon and the winter soldier. Here’s what he had to say about it.
“No, we don’t know that yet. The show, the idea of the show is basically at the end of Avengers: Endgame, Cap decided he was going to retire and asked me if I would record the shield, but too At no point did I agree or say that I would be Captain America. So the show shows who will take up the shield and who will be Captain America if Steve doesn’t come back. “
Avengers: Endgame To conclude, Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers goes back in time to bring the Infinity Stones back to where they came from. We learn that Steve chose to stay in the past to live his life with Peggy Carter. As an old man, he returns to visit Sam and Bucky. Steve gives Sam his trusty shield. Many believed that Falcon would be the new one Captain Americaespecially since this happened on the pages of Marvel Comics. That doesn’t mean it won’t happen, but we’re not quite there yet.
