Anthony Mackie he wants to have his work cut out for him as the new Captain America MCU. Steve Rogers has left some big shoes to fill, and as we’ve seen The Falcon and the Winter SoldierSam Wilson is ready to take on the mantle of Captain America.
His story continues in the director Julius Onaof Captain America: New World Order, which is sure to tell an interesting story. Mackie recently talked about playing Cap and how his character differs from Steve Rogers and the rest of the superheroes in the MCU. He explained Empire magazine:
“Sam is the only character who doesn’t have superpowers. He’s just a normal guy who hangs out with a bunch of weirdos. I’ve been in a few fights because I’m from New Orleans. And heart and charisma have never helped me in a fight. .Usually it’s just Beat Me.So this can be a problem when you’re fighting someone like Thanos.
“So I think with him, he has to come into the scene with a very different understanding of what it means to be a good guy or a bad guy, and what decisions make you walk that line. So I see him as a different kind of judge than Cap. rather, I see it as a more humane cap — (a) There are decisions that are right and that are wrong.”
So his version of Cap seems to operate more in the gray area of decision-making, which makes sense. This should make things more interesting and add a different dynamic to the Avengers team.
We don’t have any story details to share for the film, but we do know this Harrison FordMCU hero Thaddeus Ross becomes the President of the United States. Kevin Feige talking about this dynamic in the film, saying, “There’s a dynamic between President Ross and Sam Wilson. They have a history together, but in this movie we see the dynamic between Captain America and the President of the United States in an incredible way.
I’m very interested to see how it turns out. script for New World Order was written by Dalan Monsoon and Malcolm Spellmanwrote for both The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Spellman will produce with Feige. The film also stars Shira Haas, Tim Blake Nelsonand Carl Lumbly.
