During an interview with The Late Late Show with James Corden yesterday, the Avengers: Endgame star Anthony Mackie finally weighed in on rumours that he's going to reprise the role of Captain America next. When James Corden asked the Avengers star if he’s “the new Captain America,” Mackie told the British TV personality that "The thing is, if you watch [Avengers] End Game, at the end of the movie Sam Wilson never accepts the shield. He actually tells Cap that the shield is for him and it doesn't feel right on his arm."

 

The actor then added that Marvel is great at building characters over the course of many films, and from Winter Soldier to now, his whole goal in the Marvel Universe was to help Captain America, was to be his friend. So, at no point in time in End Game did (his character) Sam Wilson accept the shield at all. As a matter of fact, it made him happy to come back from time and stand once again at Captain America's side. After Corden remained adamant on the theory of him being the new Captain America, the actor made a strong point about their "not one paparazzi" having a photo of him in the Captain America costume. 

 

If you missed it, just last week, after several outfits reported that Chris Evans was in talks to return as Captain America in an upcoming Marvel project, Evans finally took to Twitter and shared his reaction to the news. The Avengers: Infinity War star tweeted a statement, dismissing the reports. The actor said, "News to me." The vague statement left the internet divided. While a few fans were disappointed over the possible dismissal of the recent development, there were others who refused to give in to his statement. The statement also paved the way to some hilarious reactions. Several memes and comments left onlookers in splits.
