Disney is never one to miss an opportunity for a big splash. During the opening moments of Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium, Disney rolled out the trailer for its upcoming original series, The Falcon and The Winter Solider. In this new series, Mackie will take on the lead role as the globe-trot around the world in an attempt to save the world from impending doom.
Mackie and his co-star Sebastian Stan are excited about what the future holds for this series. Taking these characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and transitioning them into streaming stars will present new challenges and opportunities.
“We’re getting to do things with these characters that we just never had an opportunity to [do]. I mean, we’re taking them to such different, new waters,” Mackie’s co-star, Sebastian Stand told the Associated Press.
“We’re having a lot of fun. We’re definitely [having fun]. There’s no way to not have fun with Anthony [Mackie].” He then teased that Bucky and Mackie’s Sam will not always get along: “Sometimes I would really love to kill him. But other than that, if one of us doesn’t manage to kill the other by the end of the show, we’re good.”
Check out the trailer below. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will hit Disney+ on March 19.
