Hollywood actor Anthony Mackie has played some fantastic roles in some great movies over the years but there is one that now stands out above the rest. Anthony will appear as Falcon, in the Marvel movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier, next year and he says that winning the role is the coup of his career.
Mackie told Huffington Post, "It's like the coup of my career to be able to be cast as the Falcon and have the ability to play it in that Marvel world. You know, the great thing about it is Marvel is so open to allowing you to create a character and go as far as you want. They are very specific about what they want, but they are very liberal as far as allowing you to play in that spectrum."
He added, "So, the fun thing about it is, [producer] Kevin Feige and everybody over there, they just really gave me, I feel, the opportunity of a lifetime and I tried to do the most I could with it. And I think, because of that, when you see the movie, the Falcon comes off as a great character."
Captain America: The Winter Soldier sees the return of Chris Evans as Steve Rogers aka Captain America, as well as Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill and Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens on April 4, 2014 in the US and May 2, 2014 in the UK.
