Anthony Mackie Signs On To Star In Next Captain America Film
Malcolm Spellman will write the new film. Spellman acted as the head writer for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which starred Mackie. This series was centered around Mackie’s character, Sam Wilson, also known as The Falcon, who wound up taking on the mantle of Captain America.
Mackie spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming role during an interview on Aug. 17. “I literally found out yesterday in a grocery store,” Mackie revealed. “The checkout guy named Dwayne, a cool cat, he’s like, ‘Yo, man. Is this real?!’ [holds up a cellphone] I’m like, ‘I haven’t heard anything.’ That’s what I love about working for Marvel. They call you, they’re like, ‘Come to L.A. We wanna tell you what’s going on.’ So, I’m excited to see what happens, but I haven’t heard anything.”
Mackie also stated that he had no concrete news to share about a potential second season of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. “It would be fun as hell to do.”
