September 16th, 2012 by bash Comments bagged a chat with actor Anthony Mackie over the weekend and talked to him about his role as Sam Wilson aka The Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Mackie told the site that he will be starting his training soon and that he’d been reading a lot Captain America and the Falcon comics from the ‘70s, particularly the run written by Steve Englehart that helped define the character.

The actor also said that he found some of Wilson’s backstory interesting given the fact that he moved to L.A. to become a drugdealer and a pimp however he is unsure  how much of that will be incorporated into the movie version of his character.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
