Anthony Mackie rumored to play Falcon in Captain America 2

Another tidbit learned from this year's SD Comic-Con was the potential casting for a character in the upcoming Marvel sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The news is that Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker, Real Steel, Gangster Squad) is rumored to have secured the role of Falcon, aka Rogers' sidekick. 

If you have no idea who Falcon is...

"Sam Wilson was Harlem-based and had many street adventures with Captain America in the 1970s comics when he served as his partner. He derives his powers from a suit which allows him to fly and enhances his strength. He can also telepathically talk to birds. In current comics, Falcon is a key player in many of Captain America’s espionage adventures.”

Like I said above, he is basically Captain America's sidekick.  The only other tidbit I can share about the sequel is taken from the title alone; The Winter Soldier. If you don't know who The Winter Soldier is I think you should hop on Google and do a search on Bucky from The First Avenger. You'll find what I am referring to.
