TFATWS Star Anthony Mackie Says He Hopes To Continue Playing Sam Wilson "For The Next Two Decades"

During a post MTV Movie Awards interview, TFATWS star Anthony Mackie was asked about his contract with Marvel Studios, and joked(?) that he hopes to continue playing Sam Wilson for the next 20 years...

It was a powerful moment we all anticipated, but Sam Wilson officially took up the mantle of Captain America in the season finale of Disney+'s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and will serve as the MCU's new Sentinel of Liberty moving forward.

We assume Wilson will be an integral part of this shared world for the foreseeable future, but that may all depend on how long Anthony Mackie is contracted to play the character for.

The actor was asked that very question during a post MTV Movie and TV Awards Q&A, and while he didn't give a specific answer, he did say that he hopes to remain under contract for the next two decades.

"So if I can be 65 and still doing this, I'm crushing it," he added.

Mackie is joking (although we'd have no problem with Old Man Falcon-Cap taking to the skies), of course, but it's nice to hear that he intends to stick around for a while - especially since he had some reservations about taking the MCU to the small screen at first.

"I was very skeptical and very surprised about the idea of a tv series," he said when asked if he anticipated the show's success. "I didn't think we would be able to translate onto television what we do on film, but I was blown away and surprised by how well they were able to keep the amazing scope of the film Marvel industry and take it onto Disney+."

Mackie's next appearance as Sam Wilson will most likely be in Captain America 4, although that project has yet to be officially announced by Marvel Studios.

All episodes of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier are now streaming on Disney+.
