The creators of the Marvel Cinematic Universe explained their choice of the character that will take the shield of Captain America in the new film about the ‘Avengers’ group.
Already in October 2018, Chris Evans, who for eight years played the role of the superhero, practically confirmed on his Twitter that “Avengers: Endgame” would be his last round as Steve Rogers.
Fans immediately began discussing which of the avengers would take their place, and most pointed to two possible candidates: the troubled Bucky Barnes, a Captain America war test and also known as the Winter Soldier , starring Sebastian Stan, or his winged partner in the fight against crime, Sam Wilson / Falcon (Anthony Mackie).
It was finally revealed that the shield of Captain America will be taken by Falcon. One of the reasons for such a choice was the dark path that Bucky had to follow through the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which included a turn as the killer responsible for the death of Tony Stark’s parents, reports Yahoo Movies.
In addition, the creators of the film took into account a special connection between the characters of Rogers and Wilson.
“It seemed really appropriate for the connection that Cap (Captain America) and Sam had with each other,” Avengers: Endgame co-director Anthony Russo told Yahoo Entertainment at the San Diego Comic-Con.
“Since they met [in” Captain America: The Winter Soldier “, 2014], there seemed to be a very reciprocal link between the two characters , in terms of their military background, their humility, their kind of commitment to serve. It seems that that would be the person that Cap would trust. ”
Anthony Mackie, who plays the role of Falcon and has lamented for a long time not to get full scripts for Marvel movies, seems to have decided, as a precaution to avoid spoilers, not knowing until the last moment of his Designation for the character .
Evans showed him the script, while they both watched football in Atlanta. “It was crazy, I was impressed,” Mackie said.
