Not too long after The Falcon and the Winter Soldier introduced Anthonie Mackie‘s Sam Wilson as the new Captain America of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the fourth entry in the film franchise was announced. We haven’t heard much on that project since, but it has been a promising addition to see more of Wilson’s take on the heroic role. In a recent interview, Mackie’s co-star Sebastian Stan shared his thoughts on the upcoming sequel and made a curious Rocky Balboa comparison.
But I’m very excited for that movie and I think he’s going to be great. He’s going to add a whole different feel to that idea. It kind of reminds me a little bit of Rocky, in some ways.Sebastian Stan
In the past, there have been many hints that Wilson’s time in the cowl will be closer to an underdog story, especially with its stronger cultural exploration. We may have gotten a hint in the Disney+ series that’ll get expanded once the film releases. We’ve still been waiting for any updates or news on how far along the film is. Back in August, we reported that it may be eyeing a June production start. So, we might get some casting news in the coming months if that is still accurate.
