While talking to the One More Life podcast, the Captain America actor revealed that Sebastian Stan won’t be in the movie.

Here’s what Mackie had to say on the matter:

The Falcon and [the] Winter Soldier, I really enjoyed doing that show.

I was actually excited to do a second season, just so me and Sebastian [Stan] can get paid to hang out.

Because it’s like me, him and Daniel Brühl.

It’s kind of like the perfect storm of happiness.

Mackie then went on to add:

When they decided to go back to the movies, it is what it is, but I don’t have my friends anymore, so it kind of dampens it a little bit.

Anything I can do to hang out with Daniel, a dancing Daniel Brühl, makes me very happy.

Mackie’s statement signifies a significant shift in the Captain America saga, breaking the longstanding partnership between Steve Rogers’ closest allies, now with Sam Wilson at the helm.
