Doesn’t everybody want to be an Avenger? Anthony Mackie certainly does. The actor is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as Sam Wilson, AKA: The Falcon, but Mackie has his eyes set on bigger things than being Captain America’s sidekick, like getting a chance to help the superhero team fight an evil robot in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
While talking to Total Film, Mackie made it clear that whether its today, tomorrow, or 10 years from now, he will make it to The Avengers starting line-up.
“I call all of them at Marvel every Monday,” Mackie told Total Film. “I’m like, ‘So have y’all decided if I’m in Avengers 2 yet? I’ll get on the bus to Albuquerque tomorrow!’ I wanted to be a superhero from the first day that I started in this business, and to have the opportunity to be a superhero is kind of remarkable. If I get the opportunity to be in The Avengers 2, 3, 7 and 18, there’s no way I would complain or balk at any part of that…”
