Anthony Mackie says 'Black Panther' was racist

Anthony Mackie says 'Black Panther' was racist”

Anthony Mackie has taken aim at his Marvel film bosses for failing to include black filmmakers in any of their movies.

The show, which was filming in Prague until production shut down over the health crisis, was also described as the "first Marvel show or movie that had budget constraints" by Mackie.

Mackie goes on to suggest that the best person for the position needs to be hired for the job, regardless of race: "My big push with Marvel is hire the best person for the job".

"We're shooting it exactly like a movie". Diggs stars in sci-fi series Snowpiercer and Mackie is in the miniseries The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, which premieres in August.

Avengers star Anthony Mackie has called out Marvel Studio's lack of diversity in a recent conversation with Hamilton star Daveed Diggs. 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 the movie cut up into the show. "So instead of a two-hour movie, a six or eight-hour movie". And so the stunt stuff - everything is just on another level. 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?'

Anthony Mackie made his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Chris Evans starrer Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

About Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther movie, the Avengers: Endgame actor said, "But then when you do 'Black Panther, ' you have a Black director, Black producer, you have a Black costume designer, you have a Black stunt choreographer". "One of the things I appreciate about these fandom worlds is how much the art that you consume is part of your identity". Because it starts to build a new generation of people who can put something on their résumé to get them other jobs.

He said that, as a leading man, he will try to push for this as he has "the power and the ability to ask those questions".

Even more exciting is how Mackie said the series will play with continuity like "a movie".
