During an appearance on a Chicago radio show, “Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier” star Anthony Mackie revealed that the third film in the Marvel Studios franchise will begin filming in April for a five month shoot in Berlin, Puerto Rico and Atlanta.
“We start shooting in April, so it’s going to a lot of flying and fighting for about five months,” said the actor who will be suiting up to reprise the role of Sam Wilson/Falcon. Mackie revealed the “Captain America 3: Civil War” shooting locations when he was asked by Kevin Costner. Both actors appeared on the radio show to promote their upcoming film “Black or White.”
Mackie will join Chris Evans as Captain America and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. “Civil War” will also introduce actor Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, and Daniel Bruhl as the film’s villain. Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) are also expected to return.
“Captain America: Civil War” will be directed by the “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” team of Joe and Anthony Russo and is scheduled for release on May 6, 2016.
