Sam Wilson Nearly Appeared in Spider-Man: Far From Home as Captain America

Marvel fans are eagerly awaiting the Disney+ series Falcon and The Winter Soldier to see Sam Wilson become the new Captain America, but he almost appeared on screen as Cap in next week’s Spider-Man: Far From Home.

According to, Anthony Mackie nearly cameoed in the movie at the end as 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.”

Instead it was decided that none of the Avengers would be available to Nick Fury, which would put the focus on Peter Parker coming into his own as Spider-Man. We’ll just have to wait for Falcon and The Winter Soldier on Disney+ to see Sam Wilson take on the mantle of Captain America.
