Anthony Mackie is speaking out on how he feels about his role, Captain America, as a black man.
Mackie told Deadline,You know what, to be honest, it's very emotional. I've been in the business for 20 years and I've been fortunate enough to do some amazing stuff and work with amazing people. For me, to be a Black man in 2019 and be given the helm of Captain America with the history of Black men in this country is a monumental step, not only in entertainment but also in my life.
Anthony Mackie will hold the shield again on the Disney Plus series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier in fall 2020.
