FALCON AND WINTER SOLDIER Star Anthony Mackie Recalls Getting "Mind-Blowing" Captain America News

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier star Anthony Mackie has reflected on getting the call about his Captain America future, expressing gratitude for being able to share his MCU journey with his kids...

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier followed Sam Wilson's transformation into the Marvel Cinematic Universe's new Captain America, with the hero forced to deal with the expectations that come with wielding the shield in Steve Rogers' absence. The series took us on quite a journey and ended by driving home what it meant for a Black man in today's America to wear the stars and stripes. 

It was a powerful turn for this character, which the majority of fans have embraced. Captain America 4 is officially in the works at Marvel Studios, and it's there we expect to see Sam's journey continue. 

Talking on the red carpet of the recent CMT Music Awards (via ComicBook.com), Mackie said that getting the call to inform him of his star-spangled future was a "mind-blowing" experience, and one that had a huge impact on his personal life. "As a Dad of boys," Mackie continued, "it's really cool when your kids can see you do something that they can watch."

"We do all these movies, most of them our kids can't watch. But my kids were actually able to sit down and eat popcorn and watch The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, or Avengers, or all those movies," he added. "At this point, everything I do is for my little boys, so that's the fun part."

We've only started to scratch the surface of what it means for Sam Wilson to be Captain America, and that upcoming movie obviously promises to reveal more about his new role in this world. 

The next Captain America film doesn't have a release date as of yet, but The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Head Writer Malcolm Spellman is hard at work on the screenplay alongside staff writer Dalan Musson. No plot or casting details have been revealed, but Sebastian Stan is expected to reprise the role of Bucky Barnes.
