PRESS RELEASE: Falcon Takes Flight in the Winter Soldier!
Anthony Mackie stars as the high-flying Falcon in Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" on March 26, 2014, but before that he's getting his very own poster!
Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” returns Chris Evans as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America, along with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Samuel L.

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world.
