Spider-Man: Far From Home almost featured Falcon as Captain America
In an interview with Comic Book, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and creative executive Eric Caroll have revealed that the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home almost featured a cameo from Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, which would have been our first look at Sam as the new Captain America.
“We briefly talked about bringing in Falcon as Captain America at the end, like maybe once Peter’s arced, and he’s sort of like leading the team, like maybe he calls in a favor,” Carroll said. “But we also thought it was really important to the arc of this movie that there not be other Avengers available to Nick Fury or Peter, so he’d have to step up and do it himself.”
Feige added, “Ultimately, Spider-Man: Far From Home is Spider-Man’s journey, whether any other heroes appear in it or not. It’s all about Peter stepping up, and Peter getting out of the shadow, not just of Tony but of the Avengers in general. Because by the way, he’s Spider-Man. He doesn’t need to be in the shadow of the Avengers. So other than Maria, and Nick, and Happy, and the emotional presence of Tony… You hear, he asks about Thor. He asks about Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel.”
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame (purchase here), Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has been forever changed.
Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, plus Zendaya as “MJ,” Jacob Batalon as Ned, with Marisa Tomei as Aunt May. Jake Gyllenhaal will play Mysterio. New additions include comedian J.B. Smoove, as well as Numan Acar (Aladdin) as Dimitri. MCU veterans Samuel L. Jackson (Captain Marvel) and Cobie Smulders will also appear as Nick Fury and Maria Hill respectively. See what the fuss is about by purchasing Spider-Man: Homecoming.
