Marvel Shows Off First Images of Anthony Mackie as Falcon in Captain America 2 (Photo)


The 2014 summer movie season will feature a lot of heavy hitting blockbusters, even if all of our attention is on the summer of 2015. One of the biggest films of the summer is Marvel’s next big movie, Captain America: Winter Soldier and we got another good look at more images from the movie.

We’ve already seen pictures from Empire Magazine, but we got our first look at Anthony Mackie’s character Falcon, who is shown off in a series of new photos released from Marvel.

Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, spoke about Mackie’s involvement in the film:

Meeting Mackie’s character, he used to serve, now he works at the VA counseling guys who come home with PTSD — they connect on that level. I think they’re both wounded warriors who don’t bleed on other people. Cap has no one to bleed on. I think Mackie knows how to handle people like that. … Sometimes when things are bad, trusting a stranger is the way to go.

The film picks right up after the events of Avengers with Captain America working for S.H.I.E.L.D. before he discovers an old friend named Bucky Barnes has been brainwashed and is now a threat to security.

Captain America: Winter Soldier hits theaters on April 6, 2014.
