Falcon joins Captain America to take on the Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie reportedly in talks to star. Excited for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, yet?

Sam "Falcon" Wilson will reportedly sign up to 'fight the good fight' alongside Captain America in the film's sequel. Of course Cap is a sidekick short following the events of Captain America: The First Avengers and will seemingly be at odds with his former best friend in Captain America: The Winter Solider. Anthony Mackie is in negotiations to star alongside Chris Evans in the sequel, which is being helmed by Community directors Joe and Anthony Russo. Keep in mind that Mackie is currently in negotiations and given Marvel's track record, this is far from set in stone. But at the very least, this casting news reveals that Sam Wilson will be fighting alongside Cap in the film. No details were revealed on the plot but I'd imagine that Sam is most likely going to be affiliated with S.H.I.E.L.D. in some capacity. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has previously stated that Cap will be the only post Avengers film to have a heavy S.H.I.E.L.D. presence.

WTF. ok first of they better make The Falcon a mix of 616 and Ultimate Falcon.

also why they want Anthony Mackie to play The Falcon. with his talent he should be playing Black Panther.

we getting too many black actors playing supporting roles its getting annoying.
PaulRom - 7/16/2012, 1:22 PM
Fantastic casting. He's been my choice for some time. Glad that he'll probably get it.
WolvieCBM - 7/16/2012, 1:23 PM
Awesome! He is a really good actor.
TayDee - 7/16/2012, 1:25 PM
Oh wow this was unexpected. We may see him in the Avengers sequel.

Avengers 2 Falcon!
Talontd - 7/16/2012, 1:25 PM
That is fcuking AWESOME!!!! Don't think I've ever seen a bad film with ANTHONY MACKIE!!!!
marvel72 - 7/16/2012, 1:26 PM
@ jazzman

i'm not much of a fan of the ultimate universe,i can only read the ultimates,but i must admit the ultimate version of the falcon does look alot better than the 616.
Talontd - 7/16/2012, 1:27 PM

Don't think MACKIE is big enough for BLACK PANTHER. He is also too light-skinned. Let's save that for ALDIS HODGE!
GuardianAngel - 7/16/2012, 1:27 PM
This is how its done WB!!!
Talontd - 7/16/2012, 1:28 PM
Oh and when I say big, I mean height/size, not star-power, which he certainly has more of...
ksommer - 7/16/2012, 1:28 PM
Think we'll get Falcon and War Machine in Avengers 2 as role players?
Talontd - 7/16/2012, 1:29 PM
I confirm @GuardianAngel's comment...
PaulRom - 7/16/2012, 1:29 PM
Oh, and it's Mackie, not Mckie.

Also, I prefer the Ultimate version as well. The 616 version would look goofy in a film.

yeah i like Ultimate Falcon more he is a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.

also i feel they wasting Anthony Mackie talent to a sidekick to Chris Evans. Anthony Mackie work damn hard he should star in a leading role thats why he should be offer a Black Panther solo movie role.
DanteSparda - 7/16/2012, 1:33 PM
So much YES PLEASE!!

Tought his costume would be inevitable way too different, I'm especting something black and red, with some inspiration from the Hawkeye suit perhaps, but I can't think of any way to make the wings work, perhaps metal wings and a jet pack?.

What is the Winter Soldier story....?

jazzman - 7/16/2012, 1:34 PM

he aint light-skin plus Mackie is big enough he put on alot of muscle mass for he last movie coming out next year starring The Rock and Mark Wahlberg in Pain & Gain
CherryBomb - 7/16/2012, 1:34 PM
I love love Anthony Mackie
BUT I don't like Falcon.
HelaGood - 7/16/2012, 1:35 PM
HelaGood - 7/16/2012, 1:35 PM
so if Falcon is sidekick, does that mean Bucky will be bad guy at first and then fight with the two of them?

superotherside - 7/16/2012, 1:37 PM
Too much awesome. Now release the AntMan footage Marvel! :P
RorMachine - 7/16/2012, 1:37 PM
Not a huge fan of falcon, but solid casting.

@ Zachshivey
Winter soldier is based on bucky barnes working for the russians as a spy i believe after everyone including capt. america thought he was dead.
novaprime - 7/16/2012, 1:40 PM
Wooooooo thats great news
JordanKing - 7/16/2012, 1:40 PM
Cool! Like the character, but they seriously need to modernize the costume.
ksommer - 7/16/2012, 1:40 PM
You know... w/ The Avengers Assemble cartoon coming up and Falcon being apart of that, we should've seen this coming. :)
BlackFlash - 7/16/2012, 1:40 PM
That's some unexpected good shit right there.

Anthony Mackie is a good choice.
jazzman - 7/16/2012, 1:41 PM

this is what Anthony Mackie look like

zachshivey - 7/16/2012, 1:41 PM
Awesome! Thanks @superwolverine
JerBear - 7/16/2012, 1:42 PM
Good... good
superwolverine - 7/16/2012, 1:42 PM
@ cherrybomb
just curious.... whats your beef with Falcon anyway?
HelaGood - 7/16/2012, 1:43 PM
in the Ultimates, Sam looks like this...

im wondering if they will treat him more like Hawkeye...a Shield agent and not a major player.
Triptheorist - 7/16/2012, 1:43 PM
Ive never seen the appeal of Falcon. Still, Mackie is a solid actor, and it's hard to argue with Marvel's track record. Sadly I think this puts black panther on the back burner (especially where teaming up with The Avengers is concerned), also they said the new cartoon roster is supposed to be more in line with the films I.e. falcon not bp.
