Mackie lets it be known that Falcon will indeed have wings and take to the skies, as well as his character will be battling the title character in the movie.
“I will have wings. I will be able to fly,” Mackie tells AICN. “I will be a superhero and fight people, namely The Winter Soldier.”
We also learn that the movie will not be an exact take on the comic books that feature his character as Mackie lets it be known, “It’s fortunate, because it’s a take off the comic book, it’s not the exactly storyline of the comic book.”
What about Redwing? Redwing is Sam Wilson’s pet Falcon, that in the comic books Sam can communicate with telepathically due to the Cosmic Cube.
“Man, I told you I can’t talk…[laughs],” Mackie said. “This is the first job I got asked to do first, and you’re trying to get me fired first. I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
The Russo Bros. are directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier which has an April 4th, 2014 release date and stars Chris Evans.
