Looks like the two best buds, Falcon and Captain America, won’t be sharing all their screentime together. During the lengthy Scotland shoot of Avengers: Infinity War, Anthony Mackie is departing set just as Chris Evans arrives.
The Edinburgh, Scotland shoot has seen several heroes appear with Vision and Scarlet Witch sighted a couple weeks ago. It may be most surprising though that Mackie is leaving as Evans arrives as the two are linked. Falcon serves as Captain America’s sidekick of sorts, so we wonder if the two will be diverging more in the upcoming film.
Evan’s reported arrival was revealed by The Scottish Sun, as he began partying in Edinburgh. Evans still has yet to shave for his role, but he’ll undoubtedly be doing it shortly. Mackie’s departure though was revealed through his own Twitter where he posted about wrapping the Scotland shoot.

5 Ways Marvel Studios Could Follow & Top ‘Infinity War’
Marvel Studios has been building towards a massive confrontation with Thanos since 2012 in The Avengers. Now that Earth’s Mightest Heroes, and the Guardians of the Galaxy, are finally gearing up to take him down, it seems Marvel is in a bit of a quandary. Obviously they’re not going to just give up on the most successful film franchise of all time, so where do they go from there?
Well, comic fans, you’ve come to the right place for answers. Marvel has a lot of stories to choose from over their 75 year history, but not all of them are right for the big screen. Also, some of our favorite Marvel characters, like Wolverine or the Fantastic Four, have their film rights owned by rival studios, meaning we shouldn’t expect to see them team up with Iron Man or Captain America any time soon.
