Marvel Comics recently announced that Sam Wilson, also known as The Falcon, would be taking over as Captain America in the comic books. At Fandomfest in Louisville, Kentucky this weekend, Comicbook.com asked Anthony Mackie if he had heard anything in regards to if The Falcon might be stepping into Captain America’s shoes in the movies as well.
“I don’t know. I mean I’m excited about it,” said Mackie. “I think if it goes that way in the movies that it would take a long time, because there’s so many evolutions before that. You know, I’m excited to see Sebastian play Cap. I think Sebastian’s a great actor. But I love seeing Chris Evans as Cap, so I feel like they can go any way they want. I’m enjoying my part beside Cap. I’m in no rush to be Cap.”
When asked if they called him if he would do it, Mackie nodded his head in agreement and replied, “First up for duty! First up for duty!”
Captain America 3 is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on May 6, 2016.
