Anthony Mackie Compares ‘Twisted Metal’ To Working on MCU: “There’s Only So Much You Can Do”

Matthew Orton Tapped for Reshoots on Captain America Brave New World Slated for Mid2024

Anthony Mackie’s standout role to date is undoubtedly as Falcon/Captain America in the MCU. He’s appeared in six films and one TV show so far. He’s also set to star in the upcoming movie ‘Captain America: Brave New World,’ but there are some development hiccups reportedly due to unfavorable test screenings.

Mackie recently talked about his latest project, ‘Twisted Metal,’ with RadioTimes. He highlighted the contrast in working on a franchise like that compared to the MCU, which has a well-established lore.

I would say the Marvel thing is completely different, just because it’s such a space of controlled entertainment. Like, there’s only so much you can do. There’s only so much creativity you can bring to the table, because Stan Lee gave us so much content. Whereas with this [Twisted Metal], it was like, ‘There’s a guy and a girl… go!’ So we were really able to build the world around it

Mackie’s perspective is indeed valid, especially when dealing with a dedicated fanbase that closely watches any alterations to established stories, no matter how small.

Mackie also recently expressed his disappointment that ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ won’t have a second season. He also confirmed that Sebastian Stan won’t be appearing in his upcoming movie.

The Falcon and [the] Winter Soldier, I really enjoyed doing that show. I was actually excited to do a second season, just so me and Sebastian [Stan] can get paid to hang out. Because it’s like me, him and Daniel Brühl. It’s kind of like the perfect storm of happiness. When they decided to go back to the movies, it is what it is, but I don’t have my friends anymore, so it kind of dampens it a little bit. Anything I can do to hang out with Daniel, a dancing Daniel Brühl, makes me very happy.
