Anthony Mackie Pretended Nick Fury Was Falcon's Dad In THE WINTER SOLDIER

Anthony Mackie Pretended Nick Fury Was Falcon's Dad In THE WINTER SOLDIER

Apparently Anthony Mackie created a fake subplot for Captain America: The Winter Soldier on the set as a joke that went a little bit too far. Check out what the Falcon star has to say after the jump...

According to Anthony Mackie, his character in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Falcon, is actually the son of Co-Star Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Or at least according to a joke he came up with on set to make himself laugh all based on the fact that both characters are black with goatees. But Sam Jackson didn't seem to think it was that funny. Luckily Marvel won't take this idea too seriously and everything will be fine. The 35-year-old actor said "In this movie, it's the first time we were opposite each other and I had my goatee, he had his goatee and he just looked like my dad. So I called him 'Dad' for the entire movie." On how Jackson felt and how he approached him with the joke, he said "Like, there's this whole subplot I put in there where Nick Fury is The Falcon's dad. Every time he would come on set, I would go 'Dad?' and he's like 'Shut up!'" He also discussed his scenes where Falcon would have to fly and how he would film it. "It was a four-point harness system," he explained. "Basically, they put you in a girdle-for-a-man with thigh-guarders and they put four picks on you with string… they can put you on a track and make you go forward, make you go up in a loop… it's crazy. If you're a nauseous kind of guy, you can't do it." You can catch Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier which is out now!

That's awesome... I could see it.

Falcon was so awesome! One of my favorite characters in the movie for sure.
ruadh - 4/9/2014, 2:13 PM
I was worried he'd be like the persona he was putting forth in interviews, which was WAY enthusiastic. I was pleasantly surprised at his performance in this film though.

He was the unofficial press agent for this film over a year ago.

Haha that's brilliant. Mackie was great in this
sKeemAn - 4/9/2014, 2:14 PM
He fit perfectly into this cast. Now I want to see outtakes of him calling Fury "Dad"
Bekss - 4/9/2014, 2:14 PM
Why don't put the video?
The way he talk make it even funnier.
AlexanderLykins - 4/9/2014, 2:16 PM
I do this exact same thing to one of my co-workers. He's filed for harassment several times, but he's still Dad to me.

I love Mackie due to 2 things. 1. He's a bigass fanboy! 2. He's HILARIOUS. Just watch any interview with him. Dude cracks me up!

CaptainNetherlands - 4/9/2014, 2:28 PM

Now that would be a plot twist!!!
AlexanderLykins - 4/9/2014, 2:29 PM
What a proud father!

JoJo1982 - 4/9/2014, 2:31 PM
On yeah surprised nobody has posted, since the haters said TWS was going fall off over the week
But Cap TWS made Close to 7 million on a Tuesday!!!!

Looks like Cap never missed leg day at the gym, cause TWS is holding on strong
sKeemAn - 4/9/2014, 2:31 PM
Mackie is my fave in the movie. His charisma and relationship with Cap is exactly what IM3 was missing with RDJ & Don Cheadle.
JoJo1982 - 4/9/2014, 2:32 PM


Do I smell a eminem cameo in the future Cap movies lol
sKeemAn - 4/9/2014, 2:34 PM

Nice history. I could totally see that happening. Now all we need is him to bust out a rap in the middle of flying.
JoJo1982 - 4/9/2014, 2:36 PM

He already bust out with some Marvin Gaye to Cap at the end
Indy - 4/9/2014, 2:42 PM

Awesome I love him In JP.

DaVinci31 - 4/9/2014, 2:44 PM

Mackie just makes me love him more and more every day

I kinda see what you're saying, but MBJ has so much more range than what Mackie has from what I've seen the both of them in.
Destined - 4/9/2014, 3:14 PM
Mackie gives the BEST interviews! He was made to play Falcon no doubt. His addition to TWS was perfect and I can't wait to see more of him onscreen. Really wish he would've got an AOU appearance, but it's cool.
ruadh - 4/9/2014, 3:21 PM

I'm still hoping. Do we know for sure, 100% he ISN'T in AOU?
Destined - 4/9/2014, 3:42 PM
@ruadh he has said several times they haven't contacted him. But now I'm wondering even if he was, would he even say so because of how Marvel roll? Knowing Mackie yes lol. But honestly I really don't think he's going to be in it. Though it's going to be interesting to see where they show Cap at for AOU since TWS has him going on the hunt. You would think Falcon would be in it with that ending alone, but I hope he's at least mentioned or something.
