It seems that everyone has their own opinion on the ending of Avengers: Endgame, including Falcon star Anthony Mackie who recently shared his thoughts on the film’s final scene.
MAJOR SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS: ENDGAME TO FOLLOW!
As we all hopefully know by now, Avengers: Endgame ends on a somewhat bittersweet note. In one twist that fans found somewhat shocking, Captain America ended up traveling back through time, deciding to live out the majority of his life with Peggy Carter in the past. In the present, he appears to his old comrades and passed his shield along to Anthony Mackie’s character, Sam Wilson a.k.a. Falcon.
During a recent interview with IMDb, Anthony Mackie shared his thoughts on that scene and how he reacted to it when he first read the script alongside Chris Evans. According to Anthony Mackie, he felt like they were sending him off right and was very happy about the final moment.
“You know when we went into it we realized the gravity and the magnitude of that moment,” Mackie told IMDb. “It sends Steve off right. I didn’t even know it was happening. We were at his house and he goes ‘you excited?’ I’m like ‘what are you talking about?’ and he goes ‘you don’t know?’ I’m like ‘no what’ and he jumps up, runs out of the room, comes back in with the script. He’s like ‘read it!’ And I read the scene and I’m like ‘woah…’ and he’s like ‘yeesssss!’ We cried, we drank, we laughed, and it became this thing. I’m very happy that I got that moment with Chris, for him to not only pass me the Sheild but tell me what was happening in the script.”
“What I wanted the audience to come away from it was that Steve got the ability to go and spend his life with Peggy Carter,” Mackie said. “We’re catching Steve at the end of the life that he wanted to live. He found that happiness that Tony was telling him about.”
