By interview repetition, recreatory vis a vis has not done wrong for Anthony Mackie inside a year of six theatrical showings, even when contractually restrained for a mega-franchise blockbuster. This time within a Rolling Stone interview the “Runner Runner” celeb talks some about the current movie that has his flying-high career juxtaposing in a movie also starring Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake where the story of cons and swindlers and the criminal food-chain deals out a crime drama.
And at that point where an Affleck mention catalyzes a morphic retention on the ex-Daredevil’s upcoming Batman role for the “Man of Steel” sequel, a ‘flying-high’ reference has a similar point of recall for Mackie’s debut in the Marvel franchise line of films through “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”.
The “Runner Runner” star provides the first ever appearance of Marvel Comics superhero the Falcon into live action — television or film.
Rolling Stone sparked up mention on that Sam Wilson portrayal, which sparks Mackie into leveling out his take so far on the post-film shoot production.
While he comes across as emitting nothing but a respectful regard on how cool it is to don the Falcon suit to a previous interview over 2013s summer months, the New Orleans-native tells RS more about what it takes to make the hero donning that suit.
“I wanted Falcon to be really lean, so it couldn’t have worked out better timing wise. I worked so hard to get my body in shape that I wanted to show it off. So I told Marvel I just wanted to be in spandex. But they decided that they wanted Falcon to be more of a military character, which I’m not complaining about, because my gear looks dope and I get to kick a lot of ass. Ever since I got in good shape, though, I’m all about spandex.”
From the same POV launchpad of providing fans some more expectation for the Captain America sequel, off a query about his having seen some footage Mackie lets loose a confirmation that upgrades right in line with so many other insiders reaffirming how the film definitely has a hue of espionage but is also a pure neon halo of action-packed storytelling.
“Yes, and it looks amazing. It’s so much bigger than everyone thought it would be, and we’re kicking a lot of ass. It’s a lot of fun to be a part of, especially with Samuel L. Jackson, who’s been my mentor for so many years.”
While the Falcon’s groundbreaking in-flight portrayal will pause movie-goers’ elation until April 4 of 2014, Anthony Mackie can be seen in next feature biopic-drama film “The Fifth Estate” on Oct. 18.
