The Hollywood Reporter says that actor Anthony Mackie - most recently seen in a major supporting role in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" - has been cast in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (previously known as "Captain America 2.") It's believed he will play Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon.
A Harlem-based superhero, Falcon has a strength-enhancing suit that includes a pair of wings he can fly with, plus a telepathic connection to his pet bird "Redwing." He was Captain America's buddy/sidekick throughout the 1970s, and also a sometime member of The Avengers. In one of the more infamous head-scratching "topical" moments in comics, he once quit the team on discovering that his hiring had been "forced" upon the team via federal Affirmative Action policies. Yes, really.
I'm not seeing anyone officially confirming that he's playing THE FALCON specifically, as opposed to "Sam Wilson: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. who happens to share a name with a guy who has wings from the comics," but there's got to be at least a 50/50 chance of it.
