At the 2018 London Comic-Con, Mackie spoke about how superheroes have led to the "death of the movie star." In a recently resurfaced clip on Yahoo! Entertainment, the longtime Marvel actor shared his candid opinion on how these characters have impacted the film industry.

During the interview, Macke said, "There are no movie stars anymore. Like, Anthony Mackie isn't a movie star. The Falcon is a movie star. And that's what's weird. It used to be with Tom Cruise and Will Smith and Stallone and Schwarzenegger. When you went to the movies, you went to see the Stallone movie. You went to see the Schwarzenegger movie. Now you go see: X-Men. So the evolution of the superhero has meant the death of the movie star." He continued to add that nowadays, many of the classic films, like Goonies or The Thing, would not be made today because Hollywood now caters to "16-year-olds and China." He continues in the clip, "It's just a different time now. [Hollywood makes> movies for specific audiences as opposed to just making good movies. And that's why people stopped going to the movies because most of the movies suck."

Even though this interview is from 2018, the statements still ring true in today's film industry.
