When it comes to what we can expect to see in the series, which is set to air on Disney+, it seems like even Mackie isn’t sure. When asked about the timeline the show would be set his reply was unsure. “I’m guessing I’m Fal-Cap, or . . . I don’t know,” he says. “I haven’t even seen a script.”
Reports have said it will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
The actor also didn’t have any information about when we can look forward to his character’s next feature film. “I just wait for the phone call,” said Mackie, despite being signed on for ten Marvel films.
The actor has spoken before on how he found out his character Falcon would be taking on the Captain America mantel. This time, when it came to his ascension into the role, Mackie talked about the importance of having these films about diverse superheroes.
“I knew the magnitude of Black Panther, just like I knew the magnitude of Wonder Woman,” Mackie notes. “I’ve been saying for years: If you’re going to make any movie, you make those two movies, because they’re going to make a trillion dollars. They represent a whole different sector of our society that’s underrepresented and underappreciated.”
He might be right when it comes down to the money side of things. Two of Marvel’s biggest solo films are Black Panther and Captain Marvel which sit amongst the Avengers film in the highest-grossing movies of all time.
