You probably won't see Falcon become the Captain in Captain America 3
Back in July we shared the announcement by Marvel Comics that Sam Wilson, also known as the Falcon, and played by Anthony Mackie would be picking up the shield of Captain America for the upcoming comics storyline. So with that news, a lot of us assumed or hoped, or feared, or just shrugged that the film franchise would eventually pick up on that story. Chris Evans can’t do it forever right? Contract season is coming up again and some guys would rather pass the torch than stay on as a superhero.
So when will Anthony Mackie become Captain America? Not in the next movie apparently. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely who are returning to write CAPTAIN AMERICA 3, after having a lot of success with The Winter Solider spoke with SFX about the changing identify.
McFeely was asked about the Falcon becoming Captain America on film:
“We tend to stay on the sidelines when it comes to the comics. We wait and see what we’ll steal from in three or four years from now!”
"I think the movies can accommodate almost anything, if there’s a need. I think there is a much greater need to shake things up in the comics because that’s a narrative that’s been going on for 60 or 70 years, so you’re going to wind up having to do things to it. Ours has only been off the ground for five or so. So it’s not quite time to start changing things up yet."
Another great question was asked about the tone of the next movie seeing how First Avenger and The Winter Soldier had pretty different styles.
“We are working on something that I think is an amalgam.”
"When we hit upon the Brubaker run of the comic book, we all said that, with certain exceptions, that’s the tone of Cap’s modern franchise. And you can imagine that with us back, with the Russos back, then if you like Winter Soldier you’ll hopefully like the third one, if we do it right! "
Do it right guys! CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 is set for release on May 6, 2016.
Would you mind seeing the shield passed this soon?
