Captain America fans, assemble! Anthony Mackie has given us a new tidbit regarding Marvel’s latest movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The sequel to the Chris Evans’ first film as the patriotic Captain has him joining forces with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and the Falcon (Mackie). There are also some rumors flying around that the film will be given a connection to Marvel’s television series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In an exclusive interview with USA Today, Mackie says  the Captain’s new story will follow a similar trajectory to the Avengers storyline. He says, “[This film] gives Chirs Evans the stud role that I wanted it to be for him. He looks like a stud. As my friend, I can look at it and say, ‘That’s it.’” Mackie is calling The Winter Soldier a halfway movie, somewhere between the Battle of New York and the reassembling of the Avengers. “[Filming] went amazingly well. It’s kind of like Avengers 1.5. Everyone came up and worked. The action stuff is amazing.” If the action scenes in The Winter Soldier are anything like the ones in the first film, or even in the Avengers, then we’re sure that fans will be more than satisfied! While filming this film had its ups and downs, as with any project, Mackie says that being cast as The Falcon has been the “coup of [his] career.” "It was ten times tougher shooting Captain America [than The Hurt Locker]. I'd never done anything like that. Oh no, a plane is coming at you, you're scared!" You can watch the official trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier below. Captain America returns to theaters as the winter soldier on March 28 in the UK and April 4 in the US. [youtube=]
