Captain America The Winter Soldier: Anthony Mackie Says Falcon is No Sidekick

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Anthony Mackie is the Falcon, but don’t you dare call his character a sidekick in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. "It's interesting because a lot of people equate it to Batman and Robin,” Mackie said. “The reality of it is it's more of a working relationship, a respect relationship as opposed to a leader and follower."

As Movie Fanatic previously reported, Joss Whedon says Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow will work closely with Cap, after they battled in the streets of New York in The Avengers.

Mackie concurred in his interview with MTV. "The three of us (Cap, Falcon, and Black Widow) work really well together and we support each other,” he said. “All of us are really different in our abilities and powers, so when we come together we make an awesome tandem."

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters April 4, 2014.
