Anthony Mackie: Captain America role model again
Since the finale of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a new Captain America. This was the first time Anthony Mackie was talking about his promotion.
Enthusiastic about the influence he alone has on the developments and the end of his own MCU series Anthony Mackie then told another anecdote that sums up the topic perfectly: “A friend of mine is a teacher in Florida, she works mostly with children with special needs. Recently she observed one of her students doing pull-ups on the monkey bars. She said, ‘What are you doing? You’re still hurting! ‘. And the kid just replied, ‘Well, Captain America looks like me now, so I have to train in case he needs my help. “
