Sam Wilson had gotten his new Wakanda-powered Captain America suit by the end of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, but with every Marvel project, we should always expect a new costume (hence, new action figures).
We don’t have a look at Sam’s outfit for Captain America: New World Order yet, but Anthony Mackie does tease himself being ‘America’s Ass’ next. Talking to the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via @ernlolsen), Mackie shares:
“I’ve had about four costume fittings, and the round brown is looking delicious in the spandex, baby. That’s all imma say. The round brown is going to make you happy as a peanut butter jelly on a summer day, baby. Y’know what I’m talking about?”
Though the Falcon costume in TFATWS is pretty comic-accurate, I was kind of hoping that we got something that felt like a natural progression from his film look—which is mainly just goggles and his wing pack. Maybe I’d like to see him with the ‘A’ helmet, but I honestly thought the final suit he got looks better in comics and doesn’t translate too well with live-action. Then again, that’s just my opinion.
The general plot for Captain America 4 is still unknown, but it’s said that Hulk villain the Leader (Tim Blake Nelson) is going to be an antagonist alongside Thunderbolt Ross (Harrison Ford) who has now been elected as the president of the US.
Captain America: New World Order hits theaters May 3, 2024, but you can catch Mackie in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier now streaming on Disney+.
