There are new sleeves to wear new worlds to explore, and new characters to meet. Anthony Mackie steps into the role of Takeshi Kovacs, played by Joel Kinnaman in season 1, whose Stack currently drives a sleeve with super-human strength and the ability to summon guns only by raising his arms. It was a great deal and, yes, Mackie admits, a few guns hoping to pull off the moves on screen hit him. Ahead of the series’ return, Rotten Tomatoes sat down with the stars of’Altered Carbon’ season 2 — returning cast members Renée Elise Goldsberry (Quellcrist Falconer) and Chris Conner (Poe), as well as newcomers Mackie, Dina Shihabi, Simone Missick, Torben Liebrecht, and Lela Loran — to learn about new alliances being formed, who their characters are (or how they’ve changed), and whether they see Stack technology as something to fear or something to embrace. Additionally, Mackie gets candid, opening up about Disney+’s’The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ will do wonders which the MCU movies never could.
