SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Almost Featured Anthony Mackie's Debut As Captain America

Steve Rogers passed the mantle of Captain America to Sam Wilson at the end of Avengers: Endgame, and we very nearly saw Anthony Mackie debut as the Sentinel of Liberty in Spider-Man: Far From Home...

We still don't know exactly when we'll see Sam Wilson wielding the shield as the new Captain America, but it's now been revealed that the character almost made a cameo appearance in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

While speaking to ComicBook.com, creative executive Eric Carroll revealed that Marvel considered having Anthony Mackie appear under the mantle of Captain America towards the end of the Spidey sequel, but ultimately decided against it.

"We briefly talked about bringing in Falcon as Captain America at the end, like maybe once Peter's arced, and he's sort of like leading the team, like maybe he calls in a favour," said Carroll. "But we also thought it was really important to the arc of this movie that there not be other Avengers available to Nick Fury or Peter, so he'd have to step up and do it himself,"

Kevin Feige agreed, adding that Far From Home was all about Peter "stepping up," and "getting out of the shadow, not just of Tony but of the Avengers in general."

As cool as a cameo from "Fal-Cap" in Far From Home would have been, it probably was smarter to hold off and have Mackie make more of a grand entrance with the shield at some point in Phase 4.
