Anthony Mackie may soon get to take on the mantle of Captain America after Chris Evans passed down the shield to his Marvel Cinematic Universe character Falcon at the end of Avengers: Endgame. But before that, he’s gonna have to team up with one of Captain America’s former villains in a new action (comedy?) thriller on Netflix.

And so begins an unlikely pairing of two people who will need to take on an endless array of bad guys if they want to survive. Watch the Point Blank trailer below to see how it looks. Read More »
