Actor Anthony Mackie will play Cap's partner Falcon in the forthcoming sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The Hollywood Reporter says the Hurt Locker and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter actor is currently in negotiations with Marvel Studios to play Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon, a social worker-turned-costumed crime fighter in Harlem.
Falcon was the first African-American superhero in mainstream comics. In the original Marvel Comics, Falcon became an Avenger; in the Ultimates universe, he is an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Falcon will be making his live-action, big screen debut with the Cap sequel, which will be directed by the Russo brothers. Falcon's inclusion in the sequel isn't a complete surprise as speculation has suggested he would be after Marvel revealed he's in the lineup of their upcoming Avengers Assemble animated TV series.

Was thinking about seeing the movie this weekend. How does it compare to the first?Way better than the first for me. Kinda like an action spy thriller movie for me with superheroes added of course.
