His Films Include:

He provides examples of:

  • Those Two Actors: He's starred alongside Chris Evans in What's Your Number?, A Many Splintered Thing, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
  • Keet: Just watch him playing superhero charades.
  • Promoted Fan Boy: He's such a big fan of The Falcon that he was actually disappointed when he found out the filmmakers weren't going to have him wear the red spandex costume the character wears in the comics.
  • So My Kids Can Watch: He claims he pursued the role of The Falcon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so that his son and other African-American children can see that there are superheroes who look like them. Mackie was pretty excited to see there'd be kids dressing up like him on Halloween.
  • Token Minority: Mackie himself has joked that he often ends up playing the lone African American character in many of his films.
