    In his conversation with Inverse, Anthony Mackie expressed how the actors going on a strike will lead to a “sh*t show.” He’s hoping that a fair and impartial agreement is reached between the concerned parties. Mackie believes if things don’t work out, we’ll have “YouTubers” starring in future movies. 

    The MCU actor continued, “Once the studios went public and were bought out by major companies, we were fu***d. It’s no longer about art. It’s no longer about interesting, fun work.

    Anthony Mackie added, “It’s about end-of-the-quarter profit sharing. It’s about shareholders. So you’re literally just r***ng and pillaging the industry. It’s cannibalism.”
