Chris Evans as Captain America might be one of the most popular and well-cherished Marvel superheroes. Despite Evans' exit, the MCU has found a rightful heir in Anthony Mackie. Mackie's Sam Wilson has assumed Evans' former mantle as the super-soldier, and his takeover will be featured in the upcoming Captain America: New World Order. Many fans are anticipating Captain America 4, and Mackie asked the viewers to prepare for the mature language that will come their way via the film.
In a conversation with Happy Sad Confused, Mackie revealed that the fourth installment of Captain America will feature booty shots and cursing. It is most likely to have more swear words than any other MCU film in the history of the franchise. "I’m going to curse a whole lot in this [film]," the actor teased. "I’m going straight to Wesley Snipes in Blade." With Mackie's statement, it looks like Deadpool 3 will have some competition when it comes to mature content.
Mackie also recently addressed whether Captain America is truly dead during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The actor emphasized that viewers didn’t get to see Evans’ Steve Rogers die, so chances are he’s still there, probably just old. “I didn’t see him die!” Mackie said. "I don't know, I saw Chris [Evans] two weeks ago, and he looked pretty good.” He also joked that assuming Rogers was dead is considered “age discrimination.”

Mackie's refusal to accept that Rogers is no longer alive corresponds with the actor's eagerness to play opposite Evans in a future MCU production. The actor stated that he "hoped" Evans would reprise his role as Rogers, “Chris is my boy, we all love and enjoy Chris, and I'm very upset that they put Sebastian in a movie with Wyatt and left me out, so a lot is going on," he reasoned. “If Sebastian gets Wyatt, I should get Chris,”
However, given Evans' previous statements, Mackie may not get his wish. The Before We Go star has repeatedly dismissed the possibility of an MCU return, claiming that it would jeopardize the conclusion of Rogers' character arc in Endgame. It could also affect Mackie's adoption of the Captain America mantle, which he is hesitant to allow.
For now, fans just look forward to what Mackie will bring to his stint as Captain America.
