Falcon and the Winter Soldier just ended a few weeks ago, but we’re still wondering what the future has in store for the newly formed Captain America. Anthony Mackie‘s Sam Wilson finally took on the mantle at the end of the last season. In an interview withThe Daily Show’s Trevor Noah, they discuss getting in shape for Marvel movies. In it, he reveals that it takes around four months to get in shape for a role and ends up confirming he is already in preparation for the next one.
You take the four months. Like right now, I am at the end of the first month of the four-month process to get back away from Fat Mackie to Movie Mackie.
The way he phrases it also hints that he will join a Marvel Studios project that could start filming in the next three to four months. There is also the possibility that he may be joining one midway. It is unlikely he is going through extensive training for four months just to have a cameo. So, it seems likely he’ll have a substantial role that may also require him to be physically active. So, we could see the return of Wilson’s Captain America sooner than expected.
Of course, there is a chance he is generalizing and could be preparing for a different project, but he seems to be hinting at this being the regular process before joining a Marvel Studios’ project. There is also the recent announcement of Captain America 4, which he claimed he only heard about while shopping. The timing just seems interesting. Whatever role he might be preparing for, hopefully, we get some news on it in the near future.
