In a new interview, Anthony Mackie reveals the Avengers: Endgame cast is almost none other than Chris Evans who will play the elderly Captain America.
The Avengers: Endgame almost cast someone other than Chris Evans who will play the elderly Captain America, reveals Anthony Mackie. Now, the MCU might be moving on to a new phase, but two years ago, it was all about completion.
Chris Evans will Return for Captain America
In April 2019, Endgame was released and acted as the final installment of the vast Infinity Saga. It soon became the highest-grossing film and, with its many entertaining scenes, garnered audiences. And, as for Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Evans), it has been an extra special experience for long-time viewers.
The end times of Endgame show one of the most shocking aspects of the film, namely that after reclaiming all the Infinity Stones, Steve Rogers opted to go back to the 1940s.
In the present day, viewers are introduced to an older Steve emerging, giving him one last goodbye to Sam Wilson (Mackie) in which he hands over the shield of Captain America. Evans got to play the character of the old Captain America, adding to the joy and mild annoyance of fans with the help of prosthetics and some CGI. But, that is not the case originally. Although, this was not originally the case.
Facing his next MCU release, the Disney + series The Falcon and Winter Soldier, Mackie recently appeared on the Jess Cagle Show. Mackie spoke briefly about Endgame during the interview and revealed new details in secret: There was talk of casting someone else to play the Old Man Hat. “Well, it’s funny, they actually wanted to make an old dude to play Chris Evans,” recalls Mackie.
It was definitely jarring for fans to see that Evans was an older person, but you can’t say that it wasn’t effective. In his final moments, seeing another actor’s move in the role of Cap can dispel some emotions. The fan also got to see the conclusion of Steve’s story with the actor who played it in its entirety using Evans.
Elsewhere in interviews, at The Falcon and Winter Soldier, Mackie discussed whether Sam would be Captain America or not. Although he definitely looked ready to embrace the Endgame shield, it has already been reported that Sam will face some of the US government’s pushback on the show.
Audiences would probably love to see him as the next Cap for the MCU, but it sounds like it’s going to be a long ride. Yet, if Sam wasn’t up to the challenge, he wouldn’t have been picked up by Steve in Endgame. If Marvel can make an old man out of Evans, they can make Captain America out of Sam, right?
