There are plenty of fan theories coming out of Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the moment - but this is one of the most high profile.

Anthony Mackie, who plays The Falcon in the recently released movie, appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon - and his revelations about what he thought was going on in the movie are pretty interesting.

While many had thought there might be some potential romance between Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) - and the pair do in fact kiss in the movie - Mackie claimed to have another interpretation:

It’s interesting, you know, there’s this rapport in my character study that I came up with. Because every scene, she’s trying to introduce Cap to a young lady. And when I meet her…our first scene we shot together, she was like ‘Hey, Falcon.’ And I went, ‘Oh, oh, hey Widow.’ And so then, I was like, ‘I get it. Black Widow and Falcon are dating. That’s why she’s trying to give Cap to her friends.’ So if you watch the movie, and watch it real close, you’ll see the love affair that we have for each other. It was intense

Jimmy Fallon, the host of the show, wondered whether Mackie was just trying to get the writers to put in a romantic scene.
