“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” stars Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie attended the Wizard World convention in Chicago last weekend for a nearly hour-long Q&A session.
During that time, Mackie was asked for his own take on the story of “Captain America 3”. With everything in lock down regarding the plotting which is still being tweaked, this often jokey description sounds more like his own desire of what he wants to see:
“Cap and Falcon go looking for Winter Soldier. They find him. They go through this traumatic ordeal of him transforming back into Bucky. Then, once he goes back to Bucky and we get all the craziness out of his head, then we become a three-man duo – he’s got a shield, he’s got an arm, and he’s got wings – and we go out, and we save the world. Cue theme song.”
In the comics, both characters eventually become Captain America and so the pair were asked which of them would be ‘better’ for the part. Mackie says:
“If I was Cap, it would be more like Batman. Like, ‘Why is Cap just whooping people’s ass, like all the time?’ Brother Cap is a whole different movie. That’s when it gets real.”
