According to The Falcon and The Winter Soldier star Anthony Mackie, Marvel Studios hasn’t discussed a second season.
With WandaVision coming to a close, there’s only a little time to wait until Marvel fans get to see the next chapter in the universe on Disney Plus; The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. It will seemingly examine how 21st century America will react to a Black hero taking up the mantle of Captain America after Steve Rogers. But although everything Marvel Studios produces seems to be a hit, don’t expect to see The Falcon and The Winter Soldier season 2 anytime soon.
In a recent interview with Variety that delved deep into Anthony Mackie’s career both before his work with Marvel Studios and after his casting as Sam Wilson – the star confirmed that a second season of the upcoming show hasn’t been discussed. If Mackie does step into the Captain America costume (which was seemingly revealed on the packaging for a toy) then obviously he’d be leaving his Falcon role behind. Take a look at the quote from the outlet below.
“while bound by standard Marvel-grade secrecy, the actor confirms there have been no discussions of a second season for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
