Mackie revealed this bit of news during a recent interview with Collider.

Here’s what he had to saw about the upcoming Marvel Studios Disney Plus TV show in full:

We’re shooting it exactly like a movie. Everybody who had worked on TV before was like, ‘I’ve never worked on a TV show like this’. The way in which we were shooting, it feels exactly like we were shooting a movie, cut up into the show. So instead of a two-hour movie, a six or eight-hour movie.

Those movies are like summer camp. And this show, it was no different. It was the same group of people, coming together to make it work. And so the stunt stuff, everything is just on another level. Every show, every movie, they just push it, they push the envelope so much. So hopefully, knock on wood, we’ll be going back soon… 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’. And 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.
