Captain America in Far From Home

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.

A new interview reveals there was talk of including the new Captain America in Far From Home, but the idea was ultimately nixed. On top of that, Mackie himself states that long before he became Falcon, he auditioned for a very different Marvel Cinematic Universe role.

Point Blank Trailer

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.

Point Blank finds Anthony Mackie in the middle of a nightmare when his pregnant wife gets kidnapped by a criminal intruder. The only way for him to get his wife back is to pick up a career criminal (Frank Grillo) who is being held in police custody in the hospital after a bad injury. But after being busted out, all the criminal wants to do is kill the people who put him in the hospital to begin with. 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 »

Marvel kept a super tight on spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, so much so that most of the cast didn’t even know what happened in the movie. Fake scripts and false endings abounded so as to make sure the more spoiler-prone cast members (read: Tom Holland and Mark Ruffalo), wouldn’t let anything spill.
