Anthony Mackie Closes Deal To Star In Disney/Marvel’s ‘Captain America 4’ Film



Anthony Mackie has closed a deal to carry the shield and his first superhero picture in Captain America 4, sources said.

Kevin Feige’s Marvel Studios keeps its details well under wraps and it isn’t clear whether the movie will involve Sebastian Stan, who starred with Mackie in the well-received Marvel Studios Disney+ limited series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

The unofficial title indicates this is Mackie’s vehicle, and it’s an exceptional career moment for the Juilliard-educated actor who has been a bright spot in every film he’s appeared in. That includes the Best Picture winner The Hurt Locker, 8 Mile and The Banker, to his turns as Falcon, the wingman of Captain America, who was handpicked by that superhero to succeed him. The series involved his conflict in taking on the superhero persona. Mackie played Falcon in six Marvel films beginning with
Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

I like Mackie but unsure he can carry a film of this magnitude
I was really excited for him when Season 2 of Altered Carbon came out. He couldn't carry that series. It just didn't have the same feel after he took over. I thought Sebastian Stan carried Falcon & The Winder Soldier for the most part even though Mackie had some great moments.

Eh, I don't think anybody was saving season 2 of Altered Carbon.

It seemed pretty obvious there were re-writes because I don’t think changing the lead was planned. There was just no cohesion between the seasons.

Agree on both counts.

I’m super curious to see if this movie ends up making the same kind of bank as the rest of the big Marvel movies. Cap was arguably the #1 or at worst #2 of the entire Avengers saga. This isn’t like replacing James Bond where audiences are used to a four or five movie run, then a cool off period, then a brand new fresh face to take on the mantle.

I think it’s much more difficult for Mackie to ascend to the most important or second most important member of the entire MCU if for no other reason than he was introduced as a sidekick and through his entire run, the writers never really gave him the material to ascend to a much bigger role… even when he was the star of his own TV show. That should have been a grand launch pad for him, but the storytelling just lacked… an oomph.
