Hollywood star Anthony Mackie, who performs Sam Wilson and his superhero alter ego the Falcon within the Marvel Cinematic Universe has revealed why his character hasn’t taken up Captain America’s defend, regardless of being provided by Steve Rodgers, or Captain America himself, on the finish of the movie “Avengers: Endgame“.
“Sam doesn’t want the Cap to go,” he stated throughout a digital press convention, for his upcoming present, “The Falcon And The Winter Soldier”.
“Sam’s whole journey (in the MCU) has been with Captain America. So, for him it’s just that pain that he is not there. I mean Sam is like all of you guys. He wants him (Steve Rodgers or Captain America) there. He was Sam’s Captain America as well. So, I am not sure if Sam feels it’s the right time to pick it yet,” he stated.
The six-episode present will centre round Mackie’s Sam Wilson or the Falcon and Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier.
During the convention, Stan spoke about how difficult it was for him as an actor to return to a personality, who was already established.
“I kind of freaked out, in the sense he was already established. So, to go again, and see what he is like now. There is his sense of humour, and how he is battling PTSD. All of it was really exciting for an actor,” he stated.
“Seb (Sebastian) and I are two completely opposing personalities. So, there’s no jibber jabber. We allow our best versions to develop, and we are there to correct, in order to reach that best potential. You look for that second person, and it was such a great experience working with him,” stated Mackie.
“The Falcon And Winter Soldier” will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar, March 19 onwards.
