First set photos of Anthony Mackie as Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier appear online

May. 1, 2013by:

We saw some concept art for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER last month that showed off that above image of what Falcon may look like in the upcoming movie.  Now we have our first look at Anthony Mackie shooting some green screen scenes in that very same costume, minus the wings.

Anthony Mackie's costume looks very utlitarian and not as superheroic as Captain America's.  In fact, this costume looks very much like War Machine as compared to Iron Man: less flash and flair but retaining the same basic concept.  Judging from the wires in these images, I assume the wings will be added in post-production.

In the comics, Falcon used to be a social worker, thug, and one time pimp.  It remains to be seen if he will get a new origin story for the movie and, more importantly, will he have Redwing?!

Here's the plot summary for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where “Marvel’s The Avengers” left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a. Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER stars Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Toby Jones, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford, and Frank Grillo.  It will open on April 4, 2014.

Falcon is a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and does not have is bird, not his telepathic powers with them...
So it's unlikely we'll see Redwing...

I was hoping to see some white and red a la the original costume in the comic book.

Cool, but I can't believe they couldn't get just a LITTLE red and white in there, even on his straps or belts. Only the lenses having a red tint doesn't seem enough. It would seem to me that Marvel would demand this change too, because nobody would buy a Falcon action figure dressed like that. It doesn't seem marketable enough. Even Bucky had the blue jacket in CA:TFA. Just a little more color and I'm fine.

Little insignificant detail maybe, and maybe I'm the only one, but I really hope they give Falcon his own little sidekick, Red Wing!

He's gonna kick ass in this. I'm a little more excited for Winter Soldier than for Thor: The Dark World at this point, even though the latter has a really great trailer.

SPOILERS? Seriously, JoBLO?

Just kidding, everyone. Love Anthony Mackie, and can't wait to see him in what seems to be quite an uncharacteristic role for himself. :D

I think the pictures look great and Mackie easily fits and looks into character. Very excited to see him and the whole suit in action. I also think this is one of the better casting decisions Marvel had made recently.

I also get a Hancock vibe though from the suit. Not saying that it's a bad thing.

I can dig this.

Man, Mackie looks like he's sweating his balls off in that suit. Not to mention having those wires interfere with the twig and berries.

No skull ?

I think it`s a crime that Hugo weaving would go on record saying he has no intention on playing the red skull again i like the skull and would love to see him on screen again. Seeing how he`s captain america`s greatest enemy . But if that`s the attitude he`s gonna have i`m sure they can recast him. Dude even said he hated playing megatron in transformers mind you the movies weren`t the greatest but michael bay said and i quote "Do you ever get sick of actors that make $15m a picture, or even

Bay implied that the English-Australian ought to have taken the money and kept his mouth shut and i agree.

He's about as Aussie as they come, and we Australians in general have a reputation for speaking our minds. Tell me seriously you wouldn't have taken $200K for a couple of hours of voiceover work? If Bay was that pissed at Weaving, why did he keep getting hired? Screw Bay (and you) and this self-important attitude that precludes the possibility that actors are people and might have opinions about the work that they do. "Take the money and keep your mouth shut"...? Fuck that shit.

Yes take the money and keep your mouth shut, if hes that unhappy why come back and keep doing it only to bitch about doing it? One thing that pisses people off more than anything is recasting, so ofcourse they are gonna ask him to come back, if he doesnt like it why not say no i dont like this, who takes the money then bitches? he comes off sounding like an ungrateful ass "oh i hated working for 2 hours and making 200k this is so bad, im mean im gonna keep doing it, but im gonna bitch about it

When I heard this character was in the next movie I kept picturing the silly costume from the comics (though lets be fair aren't most of the costumes from the comics silly from a realistic point of view) though I had no reason to doubt Marvel not getting it right for the cinematic version I still had trouble getting rid of that mental image. Last months image was reassuring but now Ive seen these picsIm very happy with the look. As DoB said below looks like standard issue

Damn yo dont know why I was worried . Marvel continually get far more right than they get wrong.

Back in the 1980s and repeated in the 1990s as a child and then older teen, I often asked my older bro why cant Marvel make big budget movies like DC (though all they had was Superman and Batman). Years laterI still cant believe how spoilt we've become seriously, my 10 year old has no idea how lucky he is.

Duckface! in 6 +7

Otherwise looks like standard issue S.H.I.E.L.D. gear. Falcon could be the goofiest character in the Marvel cinematic universe, so I think it's important they give him some gravity. Casting Mackie was a good start. The design of his wing suit looks pretty cool, almost military.

But I also worry that trying to make them too realistic robs the character of some personality. It's a tightrope Marvel has walked pretty successfully so far.

Looks cool. Would have been better if they had something closer to the red and white costume of the comics, but what can ya do. I get the feeling they might scratch Sam Wilson's origin story in the main comics for the origin story of the Ultimate line. It's a bit more family friendly for Disney I think. Instead of the thug/pimp background, Sam Wilson was an "adveturer/scientist turned operative for SHIELD", that origin seems a bit more in line with what those photos show above. It would at

It would at least be cool if by the third act Cap gets Falcon to suit up in the red/white costume and officially make him a superhero or something. Just sayin....
