Anthony Mackie is celebrating The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s finale, receiving some amusing comments from his Marvel Cinematic Universe co-stars in the process. Disney+’s second MCU series has now wrapped its season 1 run. Anticipation for the series was high following the success of WandaVision, which redefined what many thought was possible in the MCU. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier brought back many familiar faces while also introducing exciting new characters like Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s finale effectively teased where the show could go with a potential season 2. While WandaVision‘s story felt very complete, there’s room for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier to grow. Though Mackie and his co-star Sebastian Stan haven’t heard anything about more episodes, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has indicated there are ideas for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier season 2. Considering how the season 1 finale ended, it’s easy to speculate on what these ideas may be.
However, for now The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s stars are keen to focus on the finale. As it released on Disney+, Mackie took a moment to celebrate on Instagram, sharing a photo of himself with Stan and honoring their journey together on the show. Stan replied to the post, “Anthony…I’m with you until…the end of TIME.” Meanwhile, Frank Grillo, who played Brock Rumlow/Crossbones in multiple MCU movies, commented, “I’ll take both of you tough guys on.” Check out Mackie’s post below:
Stan and Grillo’s comments are amusing for how they relate to their MCU characters. Stan’s is a likely refence to Bucky and Steve’s “I’m with you ’til the end of the line” exchange in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Though Stan’s comment is funny, it’s also quite sweet considering the friendship Sam and Bucky formed throughout the course of the show. Grillo’s response is also all too inline with Crossbones’ villainous ways.
It’s nice to see Mackie celebrate The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s finale and the long road to it. The show faced several setbacks due to the pandemic, with filming halted for many months. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was originally supposed to premiere in August 2020, so both viewers and its stars have been waiting a long time for its release. It’s hard to say as of now how the finale will perform, but the show topped Nielsen’s streaming chart with its first two episodes, so it stands to reason the finale could do the same. Hopefully, it does well enough to justify another season of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
