Anthony Mackie says he’s ‘honored’ to play Falcon in ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’

While promoting his new film, Jamie Linden’s “10 Years” an indie film about a high school reunion, “The Hurt Locker” star Anthony Mackie talked about his role in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

Mackie told Coming Soon:

“I’m playing the Falcon. He’s this guy in Harlem who moved to California and became a drug dealer. His plane crashed, and he was genetically altered, and he can fly, has telepathic powers. He’s the first African-American superhero. It makes me feel all the work I’ve done has been paying off. I have a son, nephews and nieces, and I love the idea that they can dress up as the Falcon on Halloween. They now have someone they can idolize. That’s a huge honor for me.”

In comics, The Falcon/Sam Wilson saw his parents killed in this teens, so he moves to Los Angeles and becomes a criminal and gang member. On his way to a big score, his plane crashes on an island. While stranded he befriends a bird and gets some powers, including power over birds, ability to fly and telepathic abilities.

It’s worth noting that he eventually becomes a member of The Avengers, so we could see him in The Avengers 2.
