If there’s one thing you can count on from Anthony Mackie, it’s an interesting interview. On the set of Captain America: Civil War he started ranting about how Chris Evans is insane for thinking that the Beatles are better than Earth, Wind & Fire. Two years ago, at the Marvel Studios press line at Comic-Con, Mackie and Winter Soldier co-star Frank Grillo were walking down the line of reporters, systematically making falcon noises and dropping microphones. It was a glorious sight to behold. So it came as no surprise to me when our intrepid reporter, Amy Ratcliffe, went to interview the cast of Captain America: Civil War and came back with something deeply silly from Mackie and Sebastian Stan.
In a wide-ranging conversation, Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/The Falcon) and Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier) talk about facial hair envy, the epic new additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they even take a moment to educate Amy about the NBA. (Seriously, regarding that last item, Mackie’s French accent has to be heard to be believed.) Then things take a turn and the actors begin interviewing Amy herself about, of all subjects, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You’ll never guess what Sebastian Stan missed when he stepped out to use the restroom.
Captain America: Civil War opens on May 6, 2016. You can read our review right here.
