But he's getting used to the idea of being a whole new generation's version of Captain America, and is excited to be a part of Marvel's more diverse next phase: "I knew the magnitude of Black Panther, just like I knew the magnitude of Wonder Woman. Ive been saying for years: If youre going to make any movie, you make those two movies, because theyre going to make a trillion dollars. They represent a whole different sector of our society thats underrepresented and underappreciated."
After months of shooting the Avengers movies in an uncomfortable costume, Mackie opted for a much simpler look for our cover shoot, wearing a T-shirt with that iconic shield logo. Mackie's MCU co-star, the First Avenger himself, Chris Evans, also wore the shirt for a photoshoot with Rolling Stone back in 2016 when he was promoting Captain America: Civil War.
And we've been seeing people wearing T-shirts bearing the Captain America symbol all over the city this summer, wearing their Marvel fandom on their chests. So we went on a quest worthy of the Avengers themselves to track down where you can buy it, and here we are. We present to you a find more precious than any Infinity Stone, and a total bargain at less than $20.00, the Captain America T-shirt:
Wear it well, and wield that power wisely.
