The new Captain America has not but been decided within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This, in accordance with actor Anthony Mackie, who performs Sam Wilson, aka Falcon, within the MCU. Mackie shall be reprising the position within the upcoming Disney+ sequence The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. While many followers assumed that Sam could be taking over Steve Rogers’ mantle as the brand new Captain America, that’s not the case. At least not but.
Anthony Mackie is at the moment selling his newest film Outside the Wire, which hits Netflix this Friday. During a current interview on The Jess Cagle Show, Mackie addressed his character’s standing as Captain America, explaining that taking over the defend, whoever finally ends up doing so, goes to be a central ingredient of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Here’s what he needed to say about it.
“No, we don’t know that yet. The show, the idea of the show is basically, you know, at the end of Avengers: Endgame, Cap decided he was going into retirement and he asked me if I would take up the shield, but at no point in time, did I agree to or say that I would be Captain America. So the show walks the line of who is going to take up the shield and who’s going to be Captain America if Steve isn’t coming back.”
Avengers: Endgame concludes with Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers going again by means of time to place the Infinity Stones again the place they got here from. We study that Steve determined to remain previously to reside out his life with Peggy Carter. As an outdated man, he returns to go to Sam and Bucky. Steve presents Sam his trusty defend. Many took this to imply that Falcon was going to turn into the brand new Captain America, particularly since that’s one thing that occurred within the pages of Marvel Comics. That’s to not say it will not occur, however we’re not there fairly but.

They workforce up for what Marvel describes as “a global adventure that tests their abilities, and their patience.” Beyond that, they’ve been fairly unclear in regards to the story at hand. But, as Anthony Mackie tells up, taking over the mantle of Captain America goes to be a giant a part of the present.
