recently sounded off about his role as the Falcon in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He was adamant that Falcon will be every bit Captain America's equal on screen.
When MTV asked Mackie what the dynamic was like between his character and Captain America's, the actor explained, 'It's interesting because a lot of people equate it to Batman and Robin, but the reality of it is it's more of a working relationship, a respect relationship as opposed to a leader and a follower.'
Mackie continued, "The three of us [Cap, Falcon and Black Widow] work really well together and we support each other. All of us are really different in our abilities and powers, so when we come together we make an awesome tandem."
Interesting stuff - we can't wait to see the power play (or lack thereof) at work on screen.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier won't hit theaters until April 4, 2014. Who's up for making a time machine and travelling to the future to see it, STAT? Let me know, you guys.
