Avengers star Anthony Mackie suits up as Captain America for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in a cool new concept design.
Anthony Mackie joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America and The Winter Soldier, playing Sam Wilson/Falcon, one of Steve Rogers’ most trusted allies. After The Winter Soldier, Mackie went on to reprise the role in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Steve Rogers ultimately handed his shield and the mantle of Captain America to Mackie’s Falcon.
Anthony Mackie is now set to return to the MCU in The Falcon and The Winter Solider. Official plot details for the upcoming Disney Plus show are being kept under wraps but it would not be a stretch to assume that part of it will involve the Avenger star struggling with his new role as Captain America. Some fans, however, have taken to the internet to imagine what Anthony Mackie could look like in the role. Earlier this week, digital artist Dalton Barrett shared a concept design of the Avengers star in Captain America’s suit, with and without the iconic shield. You can see the artwork featuring Anthony Mackie below.
