While fans are looking forward to the finale of WandaVision, they won’t have too long to wait afterwards for more MCU content as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will start just two weeks later.

The series will debut on March 19th and will follow Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) as they go up against an unknown threat while taking on the legacy of Captain America.

During his time in the MCU, Mackie’s character has never been in the spotlight, always in the shadows of bigger stars like Captain America and Iron Man. In an interview with Variety, Anthony Mackie has opened up about his journey to this point and also the possibility of the second season of TFatWS.

I was really surprised and affected by the idea of possibly getting the shield and becoming Captain America. I’ve been in this business a long time, and I did it the way they said you’re supposed to do it. I didn’t go to L.A. and say, ‘Make me famous.’ I went to theater school, did Off Broadway, did indie movies and worked my way through the ranks. It took a long time for this shit to manifest itself the way it has, and I’m extremely happy about that.

Speaking about the upcoming series, Mackie stated he was both excited and a little frightened at the same time.

I didn’t think we could do on the television what we’d been doing on the big screen. I didn’t want to be the face of the first Marvel franchise to fail. Like, ‘See? We cast the Black dude, and now this shit is awful.’ That was a huge fear of mine, and also a huge responsibility with playing a Marvel character.

Mackie also went on to briefly discuss his future in the MCU, stating that as far as he is aware there won’t be a season 2 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. He also does not know if he will feature in any upcoming theatrical releases. This may just be the usual Marvel secrecy code, or he may be avoiding any potential spoilers for the upcoming series.

I suppose we will have to wait and see over the course of the series.
