When news of Anthony Mackie getting cast as Falcon in Captain America: Winter Soldier broke, I was elated because Marvel was going to get outrageous. They were ready to show off a man who flew around with giant metal wings and spoke telepathically with birds. In an interview with Ain't It Cool News, Mackie revealed that Marvel is at least allowing the wings:
While his words are a bit vague, it does confirm that he probably won't talk to birds (since it's not "exact"). But now that Falcon is going to fly, Crossbones is a henchman, SHIELD is showing up, and a hot woman is in this...this will be the most MERICA comic book film of ALL TIME.
