Anthony Mackie became famous after high breakthrough role in The Hurt Locker.  His acting is great and he will be playing his biggest role yet as Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  Falcon is a flying superhero who helps Captain America (Chris Evans) on missions.  Vivid details are not released yet.

Mackie was interviewed and he spoke about how he joined the film Captain America: The Winter Soldier and his reasons for signing on, the role, and more.  Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens on April 4th, 2014.

Marvel requested Mackie for this movie and after meeting with the filmmakers, he felt there was a comprehension on how to approach the character:

I was offered Captain America. It was just a straight offer. I met with the directors and the producers and talked to them and we were kind of on the same page about what it is we thought the character could be and they really were interested in my input and my ideas. And after that, they… I think we were both… we both realized at that meeting that we were both on board to do the movie.
