Mackie spoke to Weekly entertainment about the upcoming role in an interview on August 17th. “I literally found out yesterday in a grocery store,” Mackie revealed. “The cashier guy named Dwayne, a cool cat, he’s like, ‘Yo, man. Is it real?!’ [holds up a cellphone] I’m like ‘I didn’t hear anything.’ That’s what I love about working for Marvel. They call you, they say, ‘Come to LA, we want to tell you what’s going on.’ So, I can’t wait to see what happens, but I haven’t heard anything.
Mackie also said he has no concrete news to share regarding a potential second season of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. “It would be fun as hell to do.”
