The other day, we got news that the new Captain America Sequel will be called: Captain America Winter Soldier. Today we are getting news on a major bit of casting news for the film. THR is reporting that Anthony Mackie has been cast as Falcon. Now we are just waiting to hear if Sebastian Stan will be reprising his role as Bucky Barnes… which sort of makes sense as Bucky is the Winter Soldier.
Here is a quick recap of The Falcon:
“The character, Sam Wilson, was Harlem-based and had many street adventures with Cap in the 1970s comics when he served as his partner. He derives his powers from a suit which allows him to fly and enhances his strength. He can also telepathically talk to birds. In current comics, Falcon is a key player in many of Cap’s espionage adventures.”
