Anthony Mackie talks ‘Captain America The Winter Soldier,’ Falcon, ‘Avengers 2′ and keeping the wings

Anthony Mackie had a great chat with Total Film about Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain Blu-ray and DVD release and couldn’t dodge questions on playing Sam Wilson aka Falcon.

“[Laughs] Not at all! The funny thing about that was, every time I put on the costume I felt kind of invincible. So It was more trying not to get in trouble! I felt a little ridiculous at first because you’re a thirty-something-year-old man dressing like a cartoon hero, but after a while you start buying into it.”

Mackie said that he didn’t know if he would be taking wing as Falcon again in Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, not much has changed.

“I’m under contract for a bunch of movies but I don’t know if Avengers 2 is one of them. You’ve got a bunch of guys that get paid to go to work with their friends and have fun every day. Why wouldn’t you want to be a part of that?”

Of course Mackie was asked about keeping items as part of their contract.

“They said no! [But] when I started [playing] the Falcon, I put in my contract that I get to keep my wings. Like, ‘That’s Falcon, bitch, on the wall, behind ‘EMERGENCY: BREAK GLASS’!”

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.
