Marvel Studios has been on a seemingly unstoppable roll ever since they launched the massive Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008 with Iron Man. As successful as the studio has been, there has still been a fair share of criticism regarding diversity in the MCU, both in front of and behind the camera. The studio has taken the first steps to change all of that, by announcing their first movies lead by an African-American (Black Panther) and a female (Captain Marvel), as part of their massive Phase Three slate.
Black Panther won't hit theaters until February 16, 2018, so the studio still has plenty of time to find a director. Marvel recently brought on Joe Robert Cole, a product of the studio's writer's program, to write the Black Panther script, and a report from earlier this month revealed that the studio won't search for a director until the script is finished. What do you think about Anthony Mackie's Black Panther comments?Read More
http://movieweb.com/captain-america-3-civil-war-production-cast-synopsis/Captain America Civil War began shoot at the start of this month, and ever since then, we've gotten a wide variety of set videos and photos featuring different members of this epic ensemble. Today, we get to see Anthony Mackie return as Sam Wilson. He is suited up, and takes flight as Falcon on what looks to be the Wakanda set. He flies through the streets, taking out various villains, preparing for what looks to be a big fight.
The film is not shooting in Africa. Instead, locations near Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia have been transformed into Black Panther's home town. Other videos have revealed that new Avenger Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), is also on hand along with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), who is helping Steve (Chris Evans) coral their new band of freedom fighters. It isn't known exactly what is happening in Wakanda, or how Black Panther comes into the picture.Read More
Chris Evans' run as Captain America will soon be over, with the actor currently locked into a 6 picture contract with Marvel. He's already shot two standalone movies, with Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and two team movies with Marvel's The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. His fifth film will be Captain America: Civil War, and he'll presumably be in Avengers: Infinity War Part 1, but it is unclear if Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 is a continuation of 'one film' under his contract. However you slice it, though, someone will eventually have to step in and claim the shield. Will it be Anthony Mackie as Falcon? Or Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Solider?
As you can see, there isn't a whole lot of information to go on here. It isn't exactly known how the suit will be refurbished, or what new gadets it may include. What do you think about this ongoing question? Who should pick up the shield once Chris Evans steps down as Captain America? Do you want to see Bucky or Sam Wilson carry on the legend?Read More
First appearing in Captain America: The Winter Soldier this past spring, Anthony Mackie will return as the Falcon in Captain America: Civil War, perhaps one of the most anticipated Marvel movies announced throughout the rest of this decade. Not only does the third chapter in the Captain America franchise promise more Marvel characters than ever seen in a single movie, it will also span the globe as shooting begins this April. Talking with B96 in Chicago, Anthony Mackie offered up a few interesting production details.
The Captain America: Civil War storyline has Iron Man and Captain America feuding over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with super-human abilities to register themselves with the U.S. government, and agree to serve as part of a new police force. Stark supports the program, while Rogers does not, believing that it threatens the civil liberties of U.S. citizens. Rogers and others opposing the act are forced to go on the run. This story will also enable Stark to be a villain, of sorts, with his views going against the rest of his Avengers teammates.Read More
Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Anthony Mackie is joining forces with Dear White People director Justin Simien for the upcoming comedy Make A Wish. Paramount Pictures has acquired the script by first-time writer Zach Frenkel, which made the 2013 Black List. Anthony Mackie is also attached to executive produce, alongside Jason Newman and Jason Weinberg.
The story centers on pro football player Butchie Jones (Anthony Mackie), who grants the final wish of a young 14-year-old who worships the athlete. The wish proves to be quite difficult, since the youngster's last request is to lose his virginity. The young boy has yet to be cast at this time, and it isn't known when production will get under way. Robert Teitel (Faster) is producing alongside Jason Spire.Read More
Fresh off his turn as Sam Wilson, a.k.a. The Falcon in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie has signed on for a role in the political dramatic comedy Our Brand Is Crisis. No details were given regarding the character he's playing.
Sandra Bullock stars as "Calamity" Jane Bodine, a political consultant who often uses famous quotations to get her point across. Scoot McNairy and Billy Bob Thornton also star in this project, which is based on Rachel Boynton's documentary of the same name. That film explored how U.S. political strategists James Carville and Stan Greenberg, who served as consultants to U.S. President Bill Clinton, employed American campaign strategies that helped elect the President of Bolivia.Read More
