The first television series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier,’ began airing on Disney Plus and its first episode was highly appreciated.
The series’ lead actors Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) and Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier) revealed their thoughts on the television series during an interview with ET Online.
As you recall, when President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige first announced that the Marvel Cinematic Universe would expand to streaming series at Comic-Con 2019, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan would be featured in a television series for the first time. Although they were successful, television was an undiscovered place.
Anthony Mackie has explained why the last thing he wants is to be the lead of the first Marvel project that sucks.
Here’s what Anthony Mackie stated:
“The last thing you want is to be the lead of the first Marvel project that sucks. Whoever that is, your career’s over. You’re done. You’re doing TV commercials for the rest of your career. I don’t want to be the guy selling potted meat in France because I destroyed Marvel. So, I was very scared. Because I didn’t think it would translate to television.”
Additionally, series director Kari Skogland admitted and hoped the fans embrace them the way they embraced WandaVision. He said:
“Listen, it’s a nail-biter. I hope the fans embrace us the way they embraced WandaVision. We’re very different shows. Our stories are all unique to themselves, much like the movies. So, I just hope we’ve served the fans as beautifully as WandaVision did.”
