Falcon Suit Will Be “Way Better Than The First” In Civil War

January 13th, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



Easily one of the biggest additions to the Captain America roster in Winter Soldier was the arrival of Sam Wilson, aka Falcon. He helped save the day, and show why Falcon is a big player in comics nowadays.

Yet if there was one “complaint” it was about his outfit. It didn’t resemble the source material, and looked almost too military like

Now though, Anthony Mackie reveals that when Falcon arrives in Civil War, his suit will be much cooler: “The new falcon suit is gonna be much better than the old Falcon suit; gotta rebuild,”

Recall that the suit was destroyed near the end of Winter Soldier, so no doubt this new version is made by one of the Avengers…Stark maybe?

Oh, and if you were wondering if he might wield the shield one day…

“Well, you know there are many incarnations in the comic book, and we are now going into the Civil War. So, if you look at it in the comic book, Cap gives Bucky the shield, Bucky gives it back to Cap, Cap gives it to [Sam Wilson]. Then Bucky goes off and marries Black Widow, so I keep the shield… give it back to Cap, and recently Cap wanted to be old, so he gave me the shield back and now I got the Shield; I’m not giving it back.”
