Anthony Mackie has been in talks with Marvel to play Falcon alongside Chris Evans in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
According to THR, Mackie is currently in negotiations to star in the Captain America sequel, which is helmed by directors Joe and Anthony Russo.
The details of the plot are still under wraps, but Falcon is a character straight from the comics, who’s real name is Sam Wilson and is from Harlem. He had many adventures with Captain America in the early ’70s comics, where he played somewhat of a side-kick.
Anthony Mackie has been in quite a few hits in recent years and is in the much anticipated Gangster Squad, which comes out later this fall. He’s also shooting Pain and Gain with Michael Bay and Runner, Runner with Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier will hit theaters April 4, 2014.
