The most difficult aspect of filming the most recent edition of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to Captain America: Brave New World star Anthony Mackie, was collaborating with the iconic Harrison Ford.
In an interview to promote his appearance on Peacock’s Twisted Metal series, Mackie, who takes over for the late William Hurt as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, recalls how intimidating it was to perform alongside the Indiana Jones legend. “The first day was so intimidating,” Mackie remarked. I was so anxious that I had trouble remembering my lines. He is Harrison Ford, fcking. About him, there is this atmosphere. But he soon dispels that because he is such a cool guy. He embodies the ideal qualities of a movie star. ‘Let’s shoot this piece of sht,’ he would remark. Everyone agreed, “Yeah, let’s shoot this stuff.”
Mackie has already interacted with Ford before. The then-unknown actor who gained fame with the film 8 Mile in 2002 played a supporting part in Ford’s buddy police comedy Hollywood Homicide in 2003. The performers’ on-screen chemistry improved after twenty years of getting to know one another. We were together for quite a while, Mackie recalled. “Ross and Cap have always had that kind of friendship and regard for one another, but they also frequently disagreed. In the plot, that is how they are related. After Hurt unexpectedly passed away in March 2022 from prostate cancer, Ford was named as the next General Ross. The only known story specifics involve Sam Wilson (Mackie) donning the Captain America suit, although there have been rumours that General Ross, played by Harrison Ford, would transform into Red Hulk, precisely like his Marvel Comics counterpart. Ford has been coy about the rumour by requesting clarification on “What is the Red Hulk?”
During development, Captain America: Brave New World’s subtitle, New World Order, was changed. In addition to Mackie and Ford, the movie will mark the MCU comebacks of Tim Blake Nelson as Samuel Sterns/The Leader and Liv Tyler as General Ross’ daughter Betty Ross. Both actors last appeared in The Incredible Hulk in 2008. Despite the Hulk tie-ins implying a massive MCU extravaganza, Brave New World will be realistic, according to production designer Ramsey Avery. The goal of this, according to Avery, is to be “very grounded, to make sure it has that sense of actually happening in the world.” So it’s distinct in many ways from, in particular, some of the more recent pieces, in that sense.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
