While promoting his new film, Black or White, on multiple news outlets, Anthony Mackie talked briefly about reprising his Captain America: The Winter Soldier role as Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon, in next year's Civil War. When Windy City Live asked Mackie about rumors, or rather speculation, that he'll become Captain America like in recent comics, he replied: "Well, you know there are many incarnations in the comic book, and we are now going into the Civil War. So, if you look at it in the comic book, Cap gives Bucky the shield, Bucky gives it back to Cap, Cap gives it to [Sam Wilson]. Then Bucky goes off and marries Black Widow, so I keep the shield... give it back to Cap, and recently Cap wanted to be old, so he gave me the shield back and now I got the Shield; I'm not giving it back." In a separate interview, at the premiere of Black or White, Hollywood Chicago asked Anthony Mackie about his new Falcon suit in Captain America: Civil War. "The new falcon suit is gonna be much better than the old Falcon suit; gotta rebuild," he said. What do you think?

Directed by Joe & Anthony Russo, Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman, Frank Grillo, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie & Daniel Brühl, with appearances by Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Samuel L. Jackson expected. The film opens May 6, 2016
