CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Press Conference Features Anthony Mackie Smack Talking DC


mackieVideos from the London press conference earlier today for Captain America: The Winter Soldier have started to pop up thanks to Flicks and the City. The entire event was entertaining, due in no small part to the mere fact that Anthony Mackie was there. While there was a lot of ground covered for The Winter Soldier, there were also a few questions about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the upcoming showdown between Captain America 3 and Batman vs. Superman in 2016.

Sam Jackson explained in detail one scene that ended up being cut from the film involving Nick Fury explaining to Black Widow why he had to deceive everyone during a certain section of the film. Jackson said he was told the scene “slowed the film down” and had to be cut. He joked about the fact when the DVD comes out we will be able to click on his face to see it in full. The Russo brothers jumped in to say that there had only been maybe six or seven minutes of scenes they had to delete and they would indeed be on the eventual DVD release. Scarlett Johansson also addressed the Black Widow solo movie question again, but this time she says it isn’t too likely considering how much of Widow‘s story will be explored in Winter Soldier and Age of Ultron.

The funniest part of the conference involved the Batman vs. Superman question though. Anthony Mackie served as the hype man for the panel as he jumped into the middle of Joe Russo‘s diplomatic answer with “Hell yeah! Go ahead  and put it out there baby. Tell ’em! Tell ’em!” He went on to say in part, “In other words, punks step up to get beat down. Know about that! We got Chris Evans, baby. Deal with that.Sam Jackson chimed in with a zinger of his own. He joked, “There’s marvel where you have heroes, then there’s DC where you have interesting bad guys.” You can watch those clips, as well as the press conference in its entirety, below. What do you think about Mackie‘s jokes?
