The Falcon and the Winter Soldier writer Derek Kolstad insinuated that Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson won’t be Captain America in the Disney Plus series.
Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame concluded with an older Captain America passing on the shield to Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson / Falcon after opting to travel to the past and live a full life with Peggy Carter. As a result, many believed Marvel Studios’ Disney Plus series titled The Falcon and the Winter Soldier would focus on Anthony Mackie’s Falcon in his early days as the new Captain America. However, recent reports and rumors suggest that Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson will not have taken on the Captain America mantle by the time The Falcon and The Winter Soldier begins.
Today, series writer Derek Kolstad added fuel to the rumors during a recent Q&A session on Twitter where he took over the DiscussingFilm account. When a fan asked Derek Kolstad if he felt pressure over having to carry the Russo Brother’s torch with Anthony Mackie’s Falcon as the new Captain America, the writer suggested the premise of the question is faulty by saying, “But… is he?”
