Anthony Mackie is set to reprise his role as Sam Wilson in Disney+'s 'Falcon and the Winter Soldier', but he'll be working under a different title this time around.
As was intimated at the end of 'Avengers: Endgame', Mackie's character was passed the shield of Captain America and now has that title, which means that Falcon - his previous title - is up for grabs. But who'll be taking that title, then? Well, as it turns out, it'll be none other than Stephen Colbert.
In his interview with Mackie, Colbert whipped out a drawing by Marvel Comics' very own Joe Quesada, showcasing Colbert in Falcon's costume, complete with mechanical wings and finely waxed chest. Meanwhile, Mackie admitted that his ultimate goal is to retire at 50 and spend the rest of his life as a professional bass fisherman. As fate would have it, turns out Colbert is equally a fishing nerd and the final minutes of the interview is taken up with deep, deep fishing talk.
No joke, you can actually tell how baffled the audience is because nobody's laughing, yet Mackie and Colbert are just having a blast. It's very, very, very weird.
Take a look.
