Sam Wilson, best known as Falcon, has been a part of Captain America comic books since the mid-1960s as a friend and trusted ally of the patriotic superhero, and this made him a prime candidate to play an important role in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Played by The Hurt Locker's Anthony Mackie, Sam makes his live-action debut in the Marvel Studios film and is portrayed as a war veteran working at the VA who is called upon by Cap when needed for a mission. But don't take my word for it. The studio has just released a brand new featurette centered on the character, which you can watch above.

Sebastian Stan, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, Robert Redford and Samuel L. Jackson all co-star in the film, which will be in theaters her in the U.S. on April 4th.
