Anthony Mackie says filming during an epidemic is awful
Anthony Mackie says filming “The Falcon and therefore the Winter Soldier” during the coronavirus pandemic has been “awful”, because filming conditions are “rough”.
The 42-year-old actor plays Falcon within the upcoming Disney+ miniseries – which may be a spin-off of the films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe – and has said that filming conditions are “rough” since returning to line amid the continued health crisis.
Speaking to “Entertainment Tonight” from his filming location in Czechia, he said: “Everybody’s scared of one another .
“The food is bad, because they need to pack it up elsewhere and convey it to us in ziplock bags.
“There’s no football. I missed LeBron winning the championship. It’s crawfish season. I got all types of problems going on!
“It’s literally you’re living in quarantine. It’s not just like the NBA bubble, where that they had , like, a barber shop and friends to hold out with.
“No, if you get within six feet of someone , there’s some little Czech dude coming, poking you with a stick and saying you’ve got to maneuver . So, it’s rough.”
“The Falcon and therefore the Winter Soldier” will see Anthony reprise his role as Sam Wilson and his alter-ego, Falcon, after previously appearing in five films within the Marvel franchise, including two “Captain America” movies, and three of the “Avengers” ensemble movies.
Anthony will reunite with Sebastian Stan for the series, who are going to be playing Bucky Barnes, also referred to as the Winter Soldier.
Recalling how his friendship with Sebastian began, Anthony said recently: “When we were shooting ‘Winter Soldier’, he had this awful wig on and literally within the middle of scenes they might need to cut because the wig would really like fall off or subside .
Anthony Mackie reveals why filming in Louisiana was a bittersweet experience
According to Anthony Mackie, filming ‘Synchronic’ in Louisiana was an unusual experience.
“So i might ridicule of his wig and he would ridicule of my calves because that’s my bone of contention like growing my calves, you know. So once I realised I can give him junk and he give me junk, and that we were cool, it had been great.”
