Anthony Mackie Discusses His Future as Captain America in New Video From Marvel

Sam Wilson just recently took up the shield and the title of Captain America with Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier wrapping up on Disney+. Today, Anthony Mackie gave us an idea of just how long we could see this version of Cap in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  • Marvel shared a video today featuring a conversation with Mackie and  Gen. Charles Q. Brown, Jr., Chief of Staff of the Air Force.
  • The two discuss the importance of representation in media and how impactful it was to have Macke’s Sam Wilson take up the mantle of Captain America in the new show.
  • In the video, Mackie is asked about his timeline as Captain America and how many years he could plate the character:
    • “I definitely don’t want to be a 55-year-old Captain America so, I got a solid, you know, six to eight in me.”
  •  The moderator of the conversation went on to mention Mackie’s planned Captain America movie. The film would be Mackie’s first since taking up the shield but the fourth in the “Captain America” series of films.
  • Mackie made his MCU debut in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and has appeared in five films since, plus The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+.
  • To close the conversation, Mackie was asked about what he was able to take from the set of his Disney+ series. Surprisingly, his answer was the suit that he wore while masquerading as the Smiling Tiger in Madripoor.
    • “I got to keep my African stylish suit so I’m going to be rocking those all summer at every barbecue I go to.”
