“I did not,” Mackie stated, matter-of-factly. “I used to be very skeptical and really shocked in regards to the concept of a TV collection. I did not assume we might be capable of translate onto tv what we do on movie, however I used to be blown away and shocked by how properly they have been capable of hold the superb scope of the movie Marvel trade and take it onto Disney+.”
In hindsight, having now lived in a world the place each “WandaVision” and “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” are huge, runaway hits, the success of the Marvel TV proposition looks as if it was all the time inevitable. Each collection have been handled like lengthy films in manufacturing, with eye-popping budgets to match. From all accounts, the identical care was taken with the exhibits’ tales as is likely to be utilized to one thing like “Avengers: Endgame.” We’re actually glad Mackie determined to provide the outdated small display screen a go. If he hadn’t, we’d nonetheless be caught with this man as Cap.
