During an interview with Variety, the outlet states that Anthony Mackie isn’t sure what will happen with Sam Wilson once the show finishes up as Marvel Studio hasn’t discussed the prospects of a Season 2 for The Falcon & The Winter Soldier and he’s not sure if he’ll automatically get his own feature films.
While bound by standard Marvel-grade secrecy, the actor confirms there have been no discussions of a second season for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. As the majority of domestic movie theaters remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, he is equally unaware of the theatrical prospects for his Falcon character — or the Captain he may become by the end of this Disney Plus run.
At one point, Anthony Mackie teased the series was meant to give Sam Wilson his origin to taking over the Captain America mantle before heading into the films and that suggested to us he would end up leading Captain America 4. However, we’ll actually have to see what ultimately happens with the Disney+ series and who ends up taking over for Steve Rogers. It doesn’t seem to be as cut-and-dry as we thought when the series was first announced but there have been toys with Wilson in his Captain America uniform that seems to support that Sam will indeed become the new Cap by the end of the show.
The Falcon & The Winter Soldier debuts on Disney+ starting on March 19th.
