Anthony Mackie Feared Leading the “First Marvel Project That Sucked”

We all know that Marvel’s Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier did anything but suck; however, Anthony Mackie was worried when he was first approached about the idea.

Mackie stated, “didn’t want to be the guy in the first Marvel project that sucked.” 

He continued on by saying: “It was nerve-racking. I was very shocked and afraid,” Mackie said during a virtual panel with the SAG-AFTRA Foundation about Marvel’s pitch for Falcon and Winter Soldier. “I didn’t want to be the guy in the first Marvel project that sucked, so I didn’t know what to make of it. But once we got into it and they promised me that they were going to keep the same level of work that we’ve been doing from the movie screen to the television screen, I got excited about it.”

His worries didn’t come true as in March The Falcon and the Winter Soldier opened on Disney+ as the most watched series premier.

If you haven’t seen the series yet, all are now available on Disney+.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
