Anthony Mackie to Marvel: Hire the best person for the job



Anthony Mackie, 41, who took over the role of Captain America for Disney+'s Falcon and the Winter Solider, has played Sam Wilson/Falcon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He said:

"It really bothered me that I’ve done seven Marvel movies where every producer, every director, every stunt person, every costume designer, every PA, every single person has been white".

“We’ve had one Black producer; his name was Nate Moore. He produced Black Panther. But then when you do Black Panther, you have a Black director, Black producer, a Black costume designer, a Black stunt choreographer. And I’m like, that’s more racist than anything else. Because if you only can hire the Black people for the Black movie, are you saying they’re not good enough when you have a mostly white cast?”
