Anthony Mackie Talks AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON


Anthony Mackie held a panel at the Emerald City Comicon 2015, where he talked for the first time about his confirmed return as Sam Wilson aka Falcon in Avengers: Age of Ultron, as well as in the much-anticipated Captain America: Civil War.  When asked to compare Cap & Falcon's dynamic with Batman & Robin's, Mackie implied that his superhero pair is more equal. "With Falcon and Cap, what's so great is there's a mutual respect," he started. "There's a soldier respect. What's great about Age of Ultron and [Civil War] is you get to see their relationship grow." Mackie had then expressed his excitement for Avengers: Age of Ultron, in which he will likely only appear briefly. "Remember the first time you saw a 3D movie, and got a headache, and were like, 'What happened to my brain?'" he asked. "Avengers: Age of Ultron is like that, with The Rock punching you in the face. It's like Disneyland for adults. It's like going to Vegas with an unlimited credit card. It's by far the most stupendous film experience you'll have. It's just ridiculous." 

Anthony Mackie was later asked how much of Marvel Studios' future plans is he aware of, to which he replied explaining how he (and everyone else) found out late last month that he would be in Age of Ultron. "This is how it goes," he said. "About two weeks ago, I got a call. My friend was like, 'Yo, Age of Ultron posters out.' Why didn't tell me you were in it?' 'I'm in it?' That's how Marvel rolls. When you see somebody and they say, 'We can't tell you,' that's because they don't know." 

Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure. Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision. Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” published in 1963. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Avengers: Age of Ultron May 1, 2015.
