‘The Hurt Locker’ star Anthony Mackie has offered more information on his character, Sam Wilson/Falcon, in the upcoming ‘Captain America’ sequel, ‘The Winter Soldier,’ Comic Book Movie is reporting. After speaking with the two directors of the superhero film, Joe and Anthony Russo, the actor said for the next five months of shooting, he’s going to work out. Since Sam is known for his physique, Mackie said he’ll “start doing two-a-days, so I cant up to 230 pounds.”

Mackie added that he doesn’t plan on getting another job before finishing his work on ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ so that he can really focus on preparing for the role of Falcon. He added that he wants to work out, because “Chris Evans is in such good shape!”

After Mackie was cast as Falcon, he said he called his brother, who gave him a “litany of history about this character. He went in his closet, and he dug out a copy of the very first Captain America with the Falcon in it,” the actor said.

Mackie added that Marvel doesn’t “let you look at the script. They’re like, ‘Listen, we brought back Robert Downey Jr., so you might want to be down with us.’” But he added that he’ll be fighting in a suit during the entire film.

Of Falcon being one of the first African American superheros, Mackie said he feels the character is going to be great. He added the Russo brothers “are very funny guys and they’re great when it comes to storytelling. I’m interested in how it’s going to turn out.”
