Anthony Mackie Shares How He's Preparing For CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Offering details for how he's preparing for the role, Sam Wilson actor Anthony Mackie says he's uncertain how exactly the Falcon will translate on the big screen in the Captain America Sequel!
Promoting his latest indie film titled 10 Years, actor Anthony Mackie talked with CS.net/SHH a bit more regarding his role in Marvel's Joe & Anthony Russo-directed sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Precisely sharing how he's preparing for the role of Sam Wilson, better known as Falcon, Mackie told the blog that he'll soon begin training, even though filming doesn't begin until half a year from now.
In addition, The Hurt Locker actor revealed that he has stacks of 1970 ‘Captain America’ comics by Steve Englehart, who truly helped identify the Falcon. Adding that he finds the “fact that Sam Wilson moved to L.A. to become a drugdealer and a pimp” interesting, Mackie's uncertain how much of that backstory will make it on the big screen. And that's mainly because he's yet to read anything from the script, which is being penned by original Captain America scribes Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.
Lastly, Anthony Mackie reiterated that he's taking the role, which is Marvel's first real African-American superhero, very seriously, dubbing Sam Wilson/Falcon iconic.
Described as a political thriller, Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where the highly anticipated film “Marvel’s The Avengers” (May 4, 2012) leaves off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) continues his affiliation with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. With an expected return from James 'Bucky' Barnes (Sebastian Stan), actor Anthony Mackie is also set to star. And Anthony & Joe Russo (“Community,” “You, Me and Dupree”) take over directorial duties from Joe Johnston, who helmed the first film. And “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” hits theaters on April 4, 2014.
