Anthony Mackie Isn’t Ready To Take Over As Captain America After Civil War.

While we may have to wait until Captain America: Civil War hits theaters to figure out which of our favorite Marvel heroes would win in a fight, Anthony Mackie apparently already has the answer to who would win in a much more important battle. For those of you familiar with the Civil War comic book, you’ll know that it ends with Captain America surrendering himself to the authorities and later being assassinated by Crossbones (and Sharon Carter, but that’s where things get complicated, as everything from mind control to time travel are involved).Let’s just be honest, Chris Evans as Captain America has been an amazing one but unfortunately he won’t be able to play the character forever, right? While stopping by Salt Lake City Comic-Con, Mackie casually mentioned the fact that on the set of Civil War, he, Chris Evans and Paul Bettany once duked it out to discover who could do the most push-ups.

Here are highlights: Evans on the themes of Civil War: “Tony actually thinks we should be signing these accords and reporting to somebody and Cap, who’s always been a company man and has always been a soldier, actually doesn’t trust anymore. This discussion has been going on for a while but with latest opinions from Sebastian Stan himself coming in, the issue finds itself on the way up again. Given what happened in Cap 2, I think he kind of feels the safest hands are his own, and these are understandable concerns, but this is tough, because even reading the script, you think I think I agree with Tony in a way, and I do agree that to make this work, you do need to surrender to the group.

It can’t just be one person saying this is right and this is what we’re going to do.’ But Cap has his reasons, he certainly has his reasons, and he is a good man and his moral compass is probably the cleanest, This is a tough thing. After all, the character is currently wielding the shield in the Marvel Universe, but Mackie revealed at the Salt Lake Comic Con this weekend that he’s actually not a fan of the idea: “I don’t think we need a new Cap. I think I’d be a great Cap, but then we’re left without a Falcon.” That’s a very good point, and the actor went on to explain why he’s perfectly content with serving as a role model as the Falcon, one of a handful of non-white superheroes on the big screen: “I feel like kids don’t get race. We preach so much to kids that you can be anything you want to be, and then we follow it with ‘except,’ and we have to leave that ‘except’ off.” Who would you most like to see become the next Captain America?

His presence in “Captain America: the Winter Soldier” and in the post-credits scene of “Ant-Man” established him as an independent character that can exist outside the shadow of Steve Rogers. Sebastian Stan will also be back as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier alongside Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo, Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team.
