Anthony Mackie, the current Captain America in the MCU, criticised Chris Evans for leading a “couch potato” lifestyle after the MCU ended. Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, and Anthony Mackie, the Captain America franchise’s stars, are among the most well-known actors to have worked together in the MCU family of actors and crew throughout the years. Stan and Mackie have continued their adventure together with the buddy-cop Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Solder ever since Evans left the MCU with Avengers: Endgame, albeit they have subsequently had a little bit of a breakup. Evans, a previous member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, expressed his sincere delight for Sam Wilson, who has now taken over as Captain America, saying that “no one better to do it.”
Anthony Mackie, who plays Sam Wilson, took aim at his former Captain America co-star Chris Evans’ present way of life in an interview with Josh Horowitz of Happy Sad Confused. Mackie and his co-star Sebastian Stan put their friendships with Evans to the test by texting him at the same time to see who would get a response first in a conversation with Horowitz on the Comedy Central YouTube show Stir Crazy in March 2021 during the press tour for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. As a result, Mackie was the first to respond, and Stan followed shortly after. Nevertheless, Evans subsequently disclosed to Horowitz that Macckie had really instructed Sebastian to contact him first in an effort to rig the contest by saying “don’t text Sebastian, text me first” in his text:
“Well, I’ll be honest. I received both texts instantly. Right now, I’m going to blow Mackie up. Don’t text Sebastian, text me first, he commanded in his text message. Yet, in all honesty, I would have texted both of them back right away. Both of them are close friends of mine. With all of my heart, I adore them. Hence, Mackie was competent in his actions. Seb was close behind [Mackie] when he sent the SMS, but he did do it first. I had to send it back to Mackie just to see who got it in first.”
Mackie was called out for cheating in Horowitz’s most recent interview with him. He defended himself by saying, “[I] didn’t cheat. You omitted to tell him what to text. He said that he saw Evans “two days ago” and called him a “couch potato,” continuing his defence with the words “If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t winning”:
“There is a golfer named Jack who believes that cheating is necessary to win. Alright? Is that all you have to say? However I did see Chris. Chris was here filming stuff when I last saw him, guy. He has become a couch potato.“
Defending Sebastian Stan for having done the same, Mackie said, “he’s just like a person who sits home and don’t do nothing,” when asked if this was due to weight gain or a newfound interest for the reality TV series Real Housewives:
“Oh, no, no, he’s simply a guy who sits at home and does nothing,” was the reply. I ask, “Hey, what are we doing?” Do you want to have dinner? I’m kind of cooking a kale salad, he says. And what are we doing, like? Who or what are we? Who or what are we? He and Sebastian have aged considerably.“
“They’re not outside any more,” he continued. Evans appears to have temporarily stepped down from his MCU position, although Stan is still involved, with a 2024 Thunderbolts visit scheduled:
“I’m the only person outdoors, hey. They are no longer outdoors. Last week, I called Sebastian and said, “Yo, we’re doing it.” We’re executing it. I’ll be in New York. In response, he says, “Oh, you know, I just- I kind of have to- I’m working on this stuff.” What are you doing, too? We are outside!“
When Mackie was questioned about what he meant by “we doing it,” he responded, “picking a lovely, neutral spot, having a terrific meal, laughing, and joking about the good times. Horowitz described the idea as “beautiful,” and Mackie responded, “See? That will be a very different topic once we are outside.
Sebastian Stan, Chris Evans, and Anthony Mackie still appear to cross paths sometimes, but perhaps not as frequently as Mackie would want. In any case, the actor seemed to be making fun of the fact that they don’t go out as frequently for get-togethers like “dinner, laughing, talking chatting recalling the good times.” What is Chris Evans doing now that he has mainly abandoned the MCU in favour of other endeavours? The former Captain America actor’s most notable performances since then have been in Lightyear, The Gray Man, Knives Out, and Defending Jacob on Apple TV+.
In April, Evans will make a comeback on Apple TV+ for the romantic action-adventure movie Ghosted. The actor will also feature with Emily Blunt in Netflix’s conspiracy drama Pain Hustlers and collaborate with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to launch a new holiday franchise with Red One. All of this is happening as Evans’ potential return to the MCU is being discussed, with many people believing that it would happen with Avengers: Secret Wars.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
