Anthony Mackie on the other hand, is new to this fanatic-filled world and portrays The Falcon and his alter ego Sam Wilson for the first time. The duo, along with the film's directors, talked about the sequel experience backstage at D23 over the weekend and we bring you those video interviews below.
First up, we have to start with Cap himself… Evans. The second solo movie for Steve Rogers and his alter ego Captain America found the actor having a sense of deja vu. It was merely a few weeks ago that he was at the annual San Diego-based popular culture convention. “It’s very similar to Comic-Con. You’re up on the stage and everyone’s screaming,” Evans said. “It’s exciting. It’s people really wanting to see what we’ve worked on and that’s rewarding.”
Mackie was thrilled to have the D23 crowd check out a new clip. “We showed me and Captain America kicking some butt,” Mackie proudly stated.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the achievement of a dream for the actor. “When I got into this business, it was a dream of mine to be a superhero. The Marvel franchise is great to be a part of. Their projects tend to have a Midas touch about it.”
The directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Joe and Anthony Russo, then talked about bringing Cap back and what is different about it this time around, as well as what fans can expect when Cap 2 storms into theaters.
