We haven’t seen him in action in the role yet, but Avengers: Endgame established that Anthony Mackie‘s Sam Wilson/Falcon is the new Captain America. While we may have to wait some time before we see him suit up, we could’ve seen Falcon taking up the shield much sooner. As in, a few days from now when Spider-Man: Far From Home opens.
