Famous American actor Anthony Mackie could make an appearance in the much-anticipated 'Black Panther' sequel. This is after the 42-year-old actor visited Wakanda, a fictional nation. During an interview shortly after the release of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode where Falcon was spotted in Wakanda, Mackie alluded that he already has a Wakanda visa and disclosed that nothing is stopping him from visiting the fictional nation.


"I do have a Wakanda visa, so I can go to Wakanda as much as I want. I have a passport, and a Wakanda visa and I'm vaccinated, so I can go to Wakanda," he said.


Commenting on the sequel title unveiled as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Mackie described it as dope, adding that continuing the legacy was very important.


"It's dope. I feel like continuing that legacy is very important. There are a bunch of amazing actors and actresses under that Black Panther mantle who are now going to come together, and that legacy will live on. So, I'm really excited that they're showing that it's not specifically about Black Panther, but it's about Wakanda," he added.


Asked whether he will make an appearance in the sequel and possibly to replace Chadwick Boseman, who played Marvel's African king, T'Challa, in the film, Mackie revealed that he has great admiration for the fallen actor and wished to do everything the right way.


"It's strange now because of the amount of respect and admiration I have for Chad, having known him for so long. You just want to do everything the right way. I don't know what that answer is. I don't know what that right thing is. I just want to make sure that it's done right for him," he added.
