For some reason, when we learned that Falcon and the Winter Soldier would lead into a Captain America 4 on the big screen, there was some question whether Anthony Mackie would be in it. I mean, did you all not just watch the same show I did? Of course, some of that had to do with Mackie downplaying the whole thing himself. While a deal might not have been official back then, according to THR it is now and Mackie will indeed suit up in the stars and stripes.
Mackie is set to star in Captain America 4, which will be co-written by Falcon and the Winter Soldier creator Marcus Spellman and staff writer Dalan Musson. While details on the story are unknown, they’ll continue the journey of Sam Wilson that finds him fully taking over the role of Captain America following Steve Rogers, who was played by Chris Evans for more than a decade.
No word if Sebastian Stan will return as his pal, Bucky, or if other regulars from the series will join him, such as Daniel Bruhl’s Baron Zemo or Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter.
