2016 is shaping up to be another busy year for Anthony Mackie. This month he’s set to feature as part of the cast of John Hillcoat’s star-studded crime drama Triple 9, and will also be reprising the role of Falcon in May’s Captain America: Civil War.
At today’s UK press junket for Triple 9, Flickering Myth’s Scott Davis spoke to Mackie, and while he wasn’t giving anything away about Civil War – save for the fact that he’s seen the film and “fans won’t be disappointed” – the star did share a few thoughts on the perceived “rivalry” between Marvel and DC, which he said he finds amusing: “It’s still strange to me that people think DC and Marvel are rivals, thinking we sit on the Marvel sets talking (trash) about DC.”
Mackie also spoke briefly about Warner’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and whether he’s Team Batman or Team Superman: “If I had to pick, I’d pick Batman… Michael Keaton is my favourite Batman, though if I got to hang out with Morgan Freeman for the rest of my life, I’d be happy!”
Triple 9 is set for release in the UK on February 19th and in the US on February 26th with Captain America: Civil War following on April 29th 2016 in the UK and May 6th 2016 in the States.
