Chris Evans became world-famous as Captain America. The actor has appeared in multiple Marvel movies. Despite the fact that some fans are hoping that he will return (and there is a rumor that this may be true ), his story ends perfectly in Avengers: Endgame. That is not bad, according to Evans, because the perfect successor is already there, namely Anthony Mackie.
At the end of Endgame, Steve Rogers gives his iconic shield to Sam Wilson aka superhero Falcon. Still, not everyone was happy with this, as Bucky Barnes was also a possible candidate. However, Evans now explains why Sam Wilson is the right choice.
For example, Evans says during a recent interview with Variety that Mackie’s character has worked his way up and was always willing to help, no matter how tough and dangerous the job seemed.
” He has proven himself courageous, loyal and reliable in several films, ” begins Evans. ” Sam has given so much and lost too much. He believes in something bigger and also has a certain humility. These qualities are all necessary to bear the shield. ”
Sam Wilson will most likely play an important role in Marvel’s Phase 4, but before that, he will first be seen in the series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which will be shown on Disney + later this month. This will reveal what the future holds for Mackie’s character.
