Anthony Mackie Pretended Nick Fury Was Falcon's Dad In THE WINTER SOLDIER

Anthony Mackie Pretended Nick Fury Was Falcon's Dad In THE WINTER SOLDIER

Apparently Anthony Mackie created a fake subplot for Captain America: The Winter Soldier on the set as a joke that went a little bit too far. Check out what the Falcon star has to say after the jump...

According to Anthony Mackie, his character in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Falcon, is actually the son of Co-Star Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Or at least according to a joke he came up with on set to make himself laugh all based on the fact that both characters are black with goatees. But Sam Jackson didn't seem to think it was that funny. Luckily Marvel won't take this idea too seriously and everything will be fine. The 35-year-old actor said "In this movie, it's the first time we were opposite each other and I had my goatee, he had his goatee and he just looked like my dad. So I called him 'Dad' for the entire movie." On how Jackson felt and how he approached him with the joke, he said "Like, there's this whole subplot I put in there where Nick Fury is The Falcon's dad. Every time he would come on set, I would go 'Dad?' and he's like 'Shut up!'" He also discussed his scenes where Falcon would have to fly and how he would film it. "It was a four-point harness system," he explained. "Basically, they put you in a girdle-for-a-man with thigh-guarders and they put four picks on you with string… they can put you on a track and make you go forward, make you go up in a loop… it's crazy. If you're a nauseous kind of guy, you can't do it." You can catch Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier which is out now!
