See how Anthony Mackie’s Falcon might replace Chris Evans as Captain America in a new image featuring Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier.
As the story of Avengers: Endgame ended, Marvel Studios gave us a small glimpse of what’s to come for the mantle of Captain America. As Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers grew old and was able to live a happy life with Peggy Carter, he passed on the shield of Captain America to Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson/Falcon. Moments before this incredibly transcendent moment for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe happened, Sebastian Stan’s Bucky seemingly gave his blessing for Falcon to take up the mantle. Now it’s safe to presume that the upcoming Falcon and Winter Soldier series on Disney+, in which Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will reprise their roles, will have something to do with Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson coming to terms with this delegation from Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers.
Check out Anthony Mackie’s Falcon, now with his comic-accurate Captain America suit and shield, with Sebastian Stan’s Bucky and how they might eventually look like in their upcoming Disney+ series:
The moment in which Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers passed on the mantle and shield of Captain America to Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson was one of those few moments in Avengers: Endgame which teased what’s to come for the characters. Chris Evans will probably exit the MCU, barring any future appearances due to the fact that now they can technically access any universe where he’s still Captain America. Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson will likely come to terms with his new mantle and shield so he can stand at the forefront of the MCU like Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers once did. The truth of the matter is that Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson has the potential to be as impactful as Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers if Marvel Studios successfully turns him into a cultural icon like they did with Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther. Even so, Anthony Mackie will have to take some cues from Chris Evans since he left the bar up so high with his portrayal of Captain America.
