Kari Skogland directed all six episodes of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” The show will premiere on Disney+ March 19.
Mackie previously revealed that he wanted to play a superhero so bad that he reached out to Marvel and asked directly.
“My line was ‘Yo, I’m the black dude from The Hurt Locker. I would love to work with you guys,’” Mackie explained in a 2019 interview with Men’s Health magazine. His letter to the comics giant worked because he would ultimately land the role of Sam Wilson/Falcon in two Captain America movies, three Avengers films and one Ant-Man film.
“Growing up, I’d always loved Falcon, because he was a comic book hero who was black who didn’t have ‘Black’ in the title,” he tells the publication. “He stood on his morals. He stood on who he was.”
