Anthony Mackie is established to take up the mantle as the new Captain The us in his own movie, but on speculation above irrespective of whether Chris Evans could possibly reprise the position … he claims, no chance.
News about Mackie starring in a forthcoming ‘Captain The usa 4’ flick surfaced this 7 days, with director Julius Onah reportedly attached to immediate. This, of class, arrives on the heels of Mackie’s Disney+ present — which ends with him accepting the CA shield.
You’d believe that conclusion — which was built very very clear on the clearly show, this just after Evans’ character, Steve Rogers, had presently handed the torch at the stop of ‘Endgame’ — wouldn’t be up for discussion … but seemingly, among some lovers, it is. And, THR alluded to that in a thread.
In reaction to uncertainty about Evans’ achievable involvement with the new movie and the character, CE himself weighed in Saturday … writing, “Sam Wilson is Captain The us.”
The purpose that is a huge deal … it looks to shut down trolls who, to this working day, are not cool with the concept of Mackie carrying on as the titular superhero — a controversy that is been brewing considering the fact that 2019 when he was officially tapped as Chris Evans’ successor.
A large amount of the pushback around AM has been straight-up racist … with a lot of stating a Black man merely shouldn’t be allowed to think the part (even though that transpires in the comics).
Now, Chris appears to be confirming he’s done with ‘Captain The usa,’ and that Mackie will completely proceed as the character … without the need of Chris’s involvement going forward. Frankly, that can make perception logistically — Evans is depicted as an old dude in the remaining ‘Avengers’ motion picture … so to jam him into the plot, over and above just a cameo, feels unlikely/unneeded.
BTW, Mackie as the new Captain The usa carries a whole lot of bodyweight. It is really unveiled on the present — based mostly on an earlier comic series, which is canon — that the fictionalized record guiding Captain America is darkish, with the U.S. governing administration tests/perfecting the super serum supplying him his powers on Black troopers although Cap was less than ice. So, technically, Captain The usa was designed on the backs of Black people today … a metaphor to our own real-lifestyle historical past, some say.
So … kinda poetic that Mackie/Sam is the a single to forge a new legacy. And but, the convo weirdly carries on about who’s “entitled” to follow in Chris’ footsteps, even immediately after he is spoken.
