Anthony Mackie is set to return in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Sam Wilson or the Falcon. He has lately been the buzz of the town, see what he has to say on a possibly new Falcon Costume, a possible appearance in the upcoming “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and which side he’s on in the third installment of the “Captain America” franchise, “Captain America: Civil War.” Read on to learn more about it.
According to Comicbook.com, Mackie speaks up with iamROGUE, opening up on “Captain America: Civil War” the possibility of a new Falcon costume and Robert Downey Jr. joining the “Captain America 3” cast.
“I want my bird, man. I want my bird! [Referring to Redwing] The thing is, you know I’ve been emailing with people over at Marvel. I’ve putting it out there in the ethos that I’m going to have a new and improved costume and come out all flashy in spandex. So I’m hoping that I get a new and improved costume… Please, dress me up in spandex!” Mackie told iamROGUE in the interview.
Mackie discussed with We Got This Covered his possible appearance on “Civil War.”
“I don’t know, It’s hard. Tony Stark is one cool brother, so I would definitely have to side with him just for the parties. Then when it came to the fight, I’d go over to Cap (laughs). Tony and I could party together, but as soon as it comes to fighting, I’m with Cap,” Mackie explained.
“Civil War” will bring together heroes from Marvel’s franchise in a story, which will divide the superhero community. Based on Marvel storyline, “Civil War” heroes will be pit against fellow heroes in a clash of ideals regarding the Superhero Registration Act, a legislative bill that will require mandatory registration of all superheroes, revealing their identities to the US government. Good-intentioned superheroes will soon find themselves divided upon conflicting sides — those who fully support the Superhero Registration Act, the Pro-Registration, led by Iron Man; and those who are opposed against the Registration Act, the Anti-Registration, who rally under the banner of Captain America. The events of the series touch upon the themes of liberty, moral responsibility and civil order.
Along with Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Sebastian Stan and Scarlett Johansson, Chadwick Boseman is set to appear as Black Panther, Frank Grillo to return as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones and Anthony Mackie to return as the falcon. “Captain America: Civil War” is set to hit the screens on May 6, 2016.
