First Look at Anthony Mackie as Falcon (Photos)

Posted on May 6, 2013 /Film


Anthony Mackie was recently spotted shooting scenes from Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier in Los Angeles last week. In the film, Mackie plays Sam Wilson aka The Falcon, a former criminal turned flying superhero. Falcon is often referred to as the first African-American superhero in mainstream comic books.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier picks up where Marvel’s The Avengers left off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.

Falcon wore an extravagant red costume with wings in the comic books, so we’re unsure if Mackie’s black military garb will be his final look in the film. Check out the pics below.
