Anthony Mackie Likely to Appear in Captain America 2 as The Falcon!

I'm sure you guys already know this, but the sequel to Captain America will be called Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and will very likely follow Ed Brubaker's awesome Winter Soldier storyline, revealing the true fate of Sebastian Stan's James "Bucky" Barnes after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. If you think Mackie looks familiar, it's because you watched him killing vampires alongside honest Abe in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter".

Those of you familiar with The Falcon know that he was created in 1969 by Stan Lee and Gene Colan. Sam Wilson made his first appearance in Captain America #117 and was Marvel's first African-American superhero, continuing on as the book's regular co-star for much of the 1970's. Prior to a later retcon, Wilson was a Harlem social worker who shares an empathic link with birds, including his own falcon, Redwing. After becoming a costumed hero, Wilson made use of a flight harness to take flight alongside Cap. As a huge fan of the Winter Soldier storyline as well as the Falcon, I can't wait to see how they bring it to the big screen!
