According to Anthony Mackie, the next Captain America film will be more of a global affair.
The actor stopped by B96 Chicago (via ComicBookMovie.com) to talk about his new movie Black and White, but the subject briefly turned to his return as Sam “The Falcon” Wilson in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.
“We start shooting in April,” Mackie said. “So, it’s gonna be a lot of flying and fighting for about five months … and I’m not mad at all.” When asked by his Black and White co-star Kevin Costner where Mackie and company would be spending those months, the actor replied, “Puerto Rico, Berlin and Atlanta.”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier filmed primarily in and around Cleveland, with additional location shoots in Washington, D.C., and Baltimore.
In the comics, Civil War found Captain America and Iron Man on opposite sides of legislation requiring costumed heroes to register with the government. Presumably, the film version will see anti-registration Cap facing off against registration proponent Iron Man in the conflict, which will take root in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Joe and Anthony Russo are returning to helm Captain America: Civil War, which also stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Frank Grillo, Sebastian Stan and Samuel L. Jackson. The film opens May 6, 2016.
