Anthony Mackie as we all know plays Falcon, and has appeared in many marvel movies so far including Ant-Man, Captain America, and the Avengers. But now he is appearing in my opinion one of the best stories in marvel history, Civil War. Not only is he appearing in it, he believes that his character will play a big role in this movie and even be the ‘secret weapon’ in the film,
“I’m being used strategically to ask the audience’s questions,” Mackie said at a cast roundtable “So when Scarlet Witch is all [mimics her spell-casting motions], I’m like, ‘You saw that? Right. Just making sure you f’in saw that.’ Scarlet Witch and her crazy rave baby technique and Ant-Man riding an ant. All right, cool.”
Anthony Mackie also talks about how we will be able to see Falcon develop as a character more than we have seen him develop in any other movies he has been in,
“I think moreso in this one that I didn’t get to do before is become my own person. Now everyone knows who I am, so it’s not ‘Who’s the flying guy?’ It’s more, ‘Hey, Falcon’s here.’ You get to see my relationship with everyone else has grown as opposed to being the new guy on the team.”
Now as you saw in the title Anthony Mackie did not not know he was a ‘Full on avenger’….until now,
“When we were at the premiere, I was like ‘Cool, I’m with my son and he gets to see his daddy in two scenes in The Avengers,’” Mackie told Yahoo!. “By the end of the movie I turn around and they’re like, ‘Avengers Assemble!’ I’m like, ‘Holy s–t! I’m an Avenger!'”
“So I turn around to everybody with me and they were like, ‘Dude, you’re a frickin’ Avenger! This is f–king amazing!’”
“I had no idea. I flew in, Chris [Evans] and Scarlett [Johannson] are up top and the rest of us are standing there,” Mackie explained. “It was like, ‘Cut. Anthony, fly in. Action. Hrm-hrm-hrm. Cut. Alright, thanks!’ That was pretty much it. Six months later you go to a premiere and you s–t yourself. Everybody was like, ‘Why are you so excited?’ I’m like, ‘I just found out I’m an Avenger!’”
Anthony Mackie’s Falcon will appear in Captain America: Civil War which is set to release May 6, 2016.
