Anthony Mackie Says Filming 'Falcon & The Winter Soldier' During the Pandemic is 'Awful'

Anthony Mackie is getting candid about what filming The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which is set to debut on Disney+ in 2021.

The 42-year-old actor, who portrays Falcon, admits that shooting the show during the pandemic was less than ideal.

Anthony told Entertainment Tonight that filming is “awful.”

“Everybody’s afraid of each other. The food is bad, because they have to pack it up somewhere else and bring it to us in ziplock bags,” he added over his Zoom interview from the Czech Republic. “There’s no football. I missed LeBron winning the championship. It’s crawfish season. I got all kinds of problems going on!”

Anthony continued, “It’s literally you’re living in quarantine. It’s not like the NBA bubble, where they had, like, a barber shop and friends to hang out with. No, if you get within six feet of somebody, there’s some little Czech dude coming, poking you with a stick and saying you have to move. So, it’s rough.”

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was one of the first television series to shut down due to the pandemic concerns.

Anthony‘s co-star Sebastian Stan was seen just recently on the set. See the pics here!

Anthony Mackie Thinks Marvel Has an 'Unawareness Problem'

Anthony Mackie is speaking out again after calling out Marvel.

If you don’t know, Anthony has starred in several Marvel films as Falcon. He will reprise the role in Disney+’s upcoming The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Previously, Anthony called out the major movie studio, saying, “It really bothered me that I’ve done seven Marvel movies where every producer, every director, every stunt person, every costume designer, every PA, every single person has been white. We’ve had one Black producer; his name was Nate Moore. He produced ‘Black Panther.’ But then when you do ‘Black Panther,’ you have a Black director, Black producer, a Black costume designer, a Black stunt choreographer. And I’m like, that’s more racist than anything else. Because if you only can hire the Black people for the Black movie, are you saying they’re not good enough when you have a mostly white cast?”

In a new interview, Anthony was asked, “You recently put Marvel on blast for not having enough people of color working on their films. What prompted you to speak out?”

“I’ll say this: I don’t think what’s happening is a racism problem. I think it’s an unawareness problem. With Marvel, I really think with most companies, they feel like they’re doing what they should be doing. In no way, shape, or form, is it enough. My big thing is, put your money where your mouth is. You can’t cast a Black dude as one of your main superheroes and not expect him to have that conversation. It’s just in my DNA to have that conversation. It’s a huge opportunity for me to be part of the Marvel universe so it’s my job to make sure the Marvel universe is as good as it can be,” Anthony told Fatherly. “Anyone who’s big in our industry, if they have a party at their house, their party is 98 percent white. If you go to their office and their office is 98 percent white, that reflects their reality.”

Marvel Delays Premiere of 'Falcon & The Winter Soldier' On Disney+

Disney has announced that the planned premiere The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which was set to happen in August, won’t be happening after all.

The series, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan in their Marvel roles, has been delayed after the Disney+ list of new shows for August was released this week.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was one of the first television shows to be shut down over concerns of the coronavirus. They were about a week into filming in Prague when the shutdown happened.

A week or so later, Marvel shut down most of its other projects as well.

Anthony spoke to Variety in a recent interview about the shutdown.

“We were in Europe, and everything got crazy in Europe first,” he said. “So they shut us down two weeks before the U.S. shutdown. It was really amazing just because I feel like we’re the first Marvel show or movie that had budget constraints. And that was always my [experience], ‘It’s Marvel, we could shoot forever.’”

He added, “They’re like, ‘Nah.’ So it was a very different experience from the rest of the movies. But at the same time, it was a lot of fun.”

Stay tuned for an expected new premiere date.

Anthony Mackie Calls Out Marvel for Lack of Diversity, Points Out What Is 'More Racist Than Anything Else'

Anthony Mackie is pointing out something that Marvel has done that is “more racist than anything else.”

If you don’t know, Anthony has starred in several Marvel films as Falcon. He will reprise the role in Disney+’s upcoming The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Anthony said in a conversation with Daveed Diggs for Variety, “It really bothered me that I’ve done seven Marvel movies where every producer, every director, every stunt person, every costume designer, every PA, every single person has been white.”

“We’ve had one Black producer; his name was Nate Moore,” Anthony added. “He produced ‘Black Panther.’ But then when you do ‘Black Panther,’ you have a Black director, Black producer, a Black costume designer, a Black stunt choreographer. And I’m like, that’s more racist than anything else. Because if you only can hire the Black people for the Black movie, are you saying they’re not good enough when you have a mostly white cast?”

He also added what changes he would like to see from Marvel in future hiring practices

He said, My big push with Marvel is hire the best person for the job. Even if it means we’re going to get the best two women, we’re going to get the best two men. Fine. I’m cool with those numbers for the next 10 years. Because it starts to build a new generation of people who can put something on their résumé to get them other jobs. If we’ve got to divvy out as a percentage, divvy it out. And that’s something as leading men that we can go in and push for.”
