Anthony Mackie has revealed the iconic Chris Evans scene he’d love to dominate as Captain America.
Chris Evans has officially passed on the role of Captain America to his co-star Anthony Mackie. One of the most iconic moments of Avengers: Endgame involved Steve Rogers removing the shield, handing it over to Sam Wilson, whose reluctance to take control was featured in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, where he inevitably became the new Cap.
Anthony Mackie is set to make his theatrical debut as the new Captain America in the upcoming fourth standalone film, New world order. In particular, he has a scene featuring Chris Evans that he has in mind that he would like to have to compete with her. He told E! News the following:
“I want a fight scene that rivals the Chris Evans fight scene in the elevator [in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Solider] when he fought like 10 guys in the elevator. It was a bad scene **. The first time I saw that, I thought, “This is crazy. So I just want a fight scene that rivals that.
Anthony Mackie deserves his own iconic action sequences as Captain America. Although it is possible that the action that will be seen in New world order could go neck and neck with Chris Evans’ tenure, it would be better to have Sam Wilson’s own stamp on them than bring up what’s come before. It would ultimately be better for the character’s legacy if he stood out rather than presenting himself as a hollow imitation.
