Anthony Mackie is doing the rounds talking up his new crime thriller Triple 9, and you better believe that reporters are using the opportunity to badger him about his role in the MCU. In speaking with IGN, who asked Mackie whether he'd be interested in doing a solo Falcon movie, the actor didn't sound overly enthused - citing the reason that he'd miss working with his buddies from previous outings. Check out the full excerpt of what he had to say below:
"I dont know, I dont know. That means my dudes are not going to be there. So Chris is not going to be there. Sebastian is not going to be there."
Whilst it's cool that Mackie is as buddy-buddy with Chris Evans off-screen as their characters are on film (and in the comics), and that he wouldn't want to do a Falcon movie for lack of being able to hang out with him, the real problem might actually be that a Falcon solo movie sounds kind of dull. Because of Falcon's power set, he's definitely more ably used as a team player, providing aerial support and humorous asides, natch. What do you think - even if Mackie was interested in a solo Falcon picture, would you be? Let us know in the comments below!
