Anthony Mackie answered a question at Disney’s D23 Expo that many had assumed was already answered. With Steve Rogers handing off the shield in Avengers: Endgame, that makes Sam Wilson/Falcon the new Captain America, right? Apparently not.
Anthony Mackie, standing alongside The Falcon and The Winter Soldier co-star Sebastian Stan, quickly shut down the notion that his character would be the new Captain America saying the following:
“I am The Falcon. I will always be The Falcon. The moniker will stay the same.”

In the comics, both Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes at one point take on the role of Captain America. After the events of Endgame, it seemed only fitting that Anthony Mackie would be the one to claim the title, considering he was the one fans last saw holding the iconic shield.
Back in July, it was rumored that the plot for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier centered on the U.S. government’s opposition to Sam Wilson becoming Captain America. If what Mackie says is true and his Falcon moniker remains, does that dispel this rumor?
Or could this possibly hint that by the end of the story, Wilson embraces that he will always be The Falcon? Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier title is one that is more associated with being on the wrong side of conflicts, so there’s a chance the Captain America role could go to him. It seems unlikely that Marvel drops Captain America altogether, but maybe fans are father from having a new Cap than previously thought.
