Well.. even though there hasn't been an official announcement of this, I guess we can go ahead and say that Anthony Mackie is no longer "in talks" to play Falcon in the Captain America sequel; in the below interview with MTV, star Chris Evans pretty much confirms that Mackie is definitely going to play Falcon in the movie.

Shows you what I know which ain't much. I could have sworn that this current 3D craze wasn't going to last just as it didn't during the early 1950's.

"I think that you’ll find it very provocative. It’s definitely an unexpected choice after Precious. The reviews have been mixed. They’re the same as Precious, but I’m not here to please you as I did with Precious. With Paperboy, there’s some big stars in it [including Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey and Nicole Kidman] and they were surprised that I got them to do what I got Mo'Nique and Gabby [Gabourey Sidibe] to do. But I think die hard Lee Daniels fans will love the film and those who can’t stomach the truth will be appalled and call it disgusting."
