Anthony Mackie Will Likely NOT Return As 'The Falcon' In THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
Damn! According to an interview with MovieWeb, Mackie is not going to be a part of the highly anticipated Avengers sequel, despite the early warm reception to his role as The Falcon in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Hit the jump to read what the actor had to say on being excluded!
According to MovieWeb, who recently bagged an exclusive interview with Anthony Mackie, it is looking very likely that Captain America's modern day winged side-kick will not be suiting up to take flight once again in the upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the sequel to 2012's The Avengers. Check out the interview below:
"(Laughs) I wish. Everybody says that but Kevin Feige. Chris is a good friend of mine. The movie starts in three weeks. I know he's read the script. He's like, 'Yo, man, I read the Avengers script. It's good.' I was like, 'Really?' He said, 'Yeah, Joss (Whedon) is doing rewrites, but it's good. I was like, 'Great! So... am I in it?' And he says, 'I've got to go. I'll be back.' What do you mean? Why can't you just tell me if I'm in the movie? No one will tell me, not one person, so I gave up on it."
Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Georges St-Pierre, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp and Maximiliano Hernández with Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is directed by the team of Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.
