Could Falcon Become The Next Captain America?
We’ve got some exciting news for Disney fans! News surrounding the next Captain America has been making the rounds and we couldn’t be more excited. According to reports, Anthony Mackie who plays Sam Wilson (aka The Falcon) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will apparently be sporting the red, white and blue of Captain America in the upcoming The Falcon and the Winter Soldier show for Disney+
Apparently, news about the role began surfacing after Mackie’s make-up artist confirmed the news on Instagram.saying in a post, “We’re getting a black Captain America this year, so let’s not cancel 2020 just yet.”
If you’ve been following along with the Marvel Cinematic Universe then you know that the end of Avengers: Endgame saw Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers hand the shield over to Mackie’s Sam Wilson.
Also, if you remember back to Marvel’s teaser trailer during the Super Bowl then you know that the clip (which we’ll show you below) has a scene where Sam Wilson is throwing Captain American’s shield. What remains unclear is whether he’ll be using the shield as the new Captain America or as The Falcon.
Below you’ll also find a clip of Anthony Mackie from a recent appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon where Mackie also stated he is Captain America while explaining and joking around how the show is not cancelled.
“I’m happy to say we are not canceled, we are on hold. So we’re going back, hopefully sometime soon to finish it up. We have very little stuff to do, but I am very happy with it. We have a little bit more to go back and do, but everybody rest assured, it will come out. We are not canceled,” Mackie told Fallon. “Because you know, in this business, people are like, ‘Take a little break, we’ll come back to it,’ that means they’re never coming back to it [laughs]. I’m like, ‘Man, I was Captain America for all of two weeks, this sucks! How did I get fired on my day off?”
