We all know his character ‘Falcon’ at the end of 2019’s Avengers: Endgame inherited the title of Captain America from Steve Rogers.

So now Disney+ is creating a new series called ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ where Mackie will be continuing his role as Sam Wilson.

Mackie, in an interview with Shadow & Act has discussed the idea of ‘…being a black man and becoming Captain America’ in this day and age.

There will be haters for sure but in general we feel like it’ll be nice to have a fresh perspective representing the country.

He goes on to say “There is no distinctive look or feel or design of an American”, which we feel reflects in Australia too, so PREACH IT MACKIE!

‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ will come out in August, so pencil that into your diaries.

It will follow the adventures of Captain America (now played by Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (played by Sebastian Stan!).
