Highlight Story

American actor Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker) is in talks to play Marvel superhero Falcon in the sequel to Captain America, The Hollywood Reporter reports.



Falcon, Captain America's enemy-turned-friend, first appeared in Marvel comics in 1969, becoming one of the first African-American superheroes of the publishing house, with Luke Cage. A social worker in Harlem by day, Falcon can communicate with birds -- and also fly thanks to his costume -- during his extra activities.



Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is scheduled for a 2014 release. The movie will follow the American superhero (Chris Evans) battling against his friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), who has turned into an assassin suffering from amnesia.
