(MCU) drama series「 」From “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014) / I’ve played the role of Sam Wilson However, it was the first project that made me feel hesitant and scared. Why did Anthony, who has shown his presence in numerous works, show resistance to this work?
At Variety, Anthony“I didn’t think I could do what I used to do on a big screen on TV.”I confess. Due to the corona wreck, the distribution schedule was changed, so the MCU’s first drama work became “WandaVision”, but this work was originally supposed to be the first. As a person playing the role of Falcon in the title role, the pressure may have been extraordinary.
「I didn’t want to be the protagonist of the first unsuccessful work in history. I don’t like something like “How is it? Casting a black man made me sick.”.. That was really scary to me, and I thought that was the big responsibility for playing the Marvel character. “
Set after “Avengers: Endgame” (2019), this work depicts a new adventure between Falcon and Winter Soldier / Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan). One side of Sam & Bucky, which has not been dug up until now, is properly spun out. Anthony was relieved by the series because of the “depth” of the story written by Malcolm Spellman, the scriptwriter and executive producer. Especially this time, Sam’s race and identity are the keys to his work.
“Sam Wilson is not Thor or Black Panther. He is neither from another planet nor the king.”.. This is what Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says. “He’s an African-American, military-experienced, counseling soldier with PTSD. But where did he grow up? What kind of people are his family? McKee Was excited to be able to portray Sam as a human being, especially as a black man. “
In the world of Marvel, where there are many heroes and villains with superhuman abilities and peculiar qualities, Sam is relatively close to Hawkeye / Clint Barton and Black Widow / Natasha Romanov, so to speak, “ordinary humans”. .. Perhaps that’s why Anthony describes the Falcon as a “eye-and-ear” position for the audience. “Go out to the game,Fight with us. I think that’s one good side of Sam. He’s just a normal guy who can play and do special things. “
