Stan Returns as Bucky

Falcon almost cast

Captain America will likely team up with Falcon in its sequel. The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" actor Anthony Mackie has been courted to star as the superhero persona of Sam Wilson in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".
In Marvel universe, Falcon is known as one of its famous African-American superheroes. As a partner of Steve Rogers, the Harlem-based character has been involved in various adventures with the Cap. In addition to having an ability to communicate with birds, Falcon gets his superpower from a suit that could make him fly.
While Mackie is still in talks for the coveted part, Variety has confirmed that Sebastian Stan will return to "Captain America 2". He is set to reprise his role as Bucky, a brainwashed assassin known as the Winter Soldier.
To be directed by "Community" helmers Anthony and Joe Russo, the "Captain America" sequel still hasn't unveiled its official plot. Though so, it has been rumored that the film will be based on a respected comic book storyline from the 2000s which followed Bucky as a brainwashed super-assassin.
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" will be released in the U.S. on April 4, 2014. It will bring back Chris Evans as the titular superhero.
 Thanks to DarthBob for the submission.

Winter Soldier is my favorite Cap story line.  News just keeps getting better.

Falcon is an interesting choice.  Of course if they're bringing in the Winter Soldier I wouldn't be surprised if they had Black Widow popping up as well.

Stan signed a three picture deal so his returning isn't that big of a surprise. But Mackie however being The Falcon that's another story. In the Ultimate universe The Falcon was a Shield scientist/agent who designed and built the suit himself. In the 616 verse it was a suit that was given to him by the Black Panther and designed and built by Wakandan science.  The suit will probably look closer to what it looks like in the Ultimate verse.

If the cop out and go with some stupid black leather suit .. lame.  If your going to do Falcon then give em the proper costume similiar to the comics but not ridic.

"In Marvel universe, Falcon is known as one of its famous African-American superheroes."

And that should tell eveyone just how poor Marvel has written its African-American heroes that a lame Aquaman ripoff (without even the benefit of being able to fly without his suit) counts as "famous" because he does little more than exist. Maybe the Cap movie will give him something to do know, like they did in Iron Man with Rhodes...

Yeah, this will be fantastic.

So we are turning this into a race ploy now? Seriously? What another token black guy to make people happy? I mean Fury is black, so how is marvel being racist?
