Captain America 2 Is The Avengers 1.5 With All Its Superheroes Says Anthony Mackie
Captain America 2 will feature Cap, Black Widow, Nick Fury, Falcon and maybe more as they combine forces to take down The Winter Solider.
In a recent interview, Anthony Mackie, who plays The Falcon, compared Captain America 2 to "The Avengers 1.5."
He told MovieFone:
First, I’ll say that being a part of it is great. I think that Marvel has it down to a science and they’ve been very deliberate about what they want and what they don’t want out in the world. And they’re very focused on timelines as far as releases and stuff. This movie, "Captain America," has kind of become "Avengers 1.5"; if you look at the cast they’ve put together, if you look at the number of characters that are in this movie. I mean, it’s a huge number of superheroes and characters. The basic idea is that you have Captain America, Black Widow, and Falcon that get together to take down the Winter Soldier.
As we see there are a bunch of superheroes, presently, we know one other villain in Captain America 2 besides The Winter Soldier with Batroc the Leaper, played by MMA fighter Georges St-Pierre.
The Russo Bros. are directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier which has an April 4th, 2014 release date and stars Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford.
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, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.
