One of the questions leading into The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, is Falcon the new Captain America, will be explained.
Mackie has left it open as to whether he has really taken on the mantle, even though it appears that Steve Rogers bestowed the honor upon him at the end of Avengers: Endgame. Talking on the Jess Cagle Show on SiriusXM, Mackie said –
“The idea of the show, basically. At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Cap retired and asked me to take up the shield. But at no point did I agree to or say that I would be Captain America,”
“So, the show walks the line of ‘Who’s gonna take up the shield and who’s gonna be Captain America, if Steve [Rogers] isn’t coming back?’”
“People are like, ‘you’re Captain America,’ and like, that’s not true. If you look at the end of Endgame, Sam never accepts the shield. You don’t know who Captain America is going to be.”
The Falcon And The Winter Soldier will start streaming on Disney+ this Friday, March 19th.
