In a conversation with CinemaBlend while on a press tour for Our Brand is Crisis, Anthony Mackie, as most MCU actors do, answered some questions about his next project with the mighty Marvel Studios, Captain America: Civil War.
Specifically, they asked him about his relationship with Ant-Man, and how that would follow after the diminutive hero pretty much kicked his butt in his own movie this summer.
"Yeah, our relationship is… yeah [laughs]. It grows in Civil War," Mackie teased. He gives a lot of credit to Ant-Man's actor for the way they act on screen together. "But that’s Paul Rudd, man. Paul Rudd and I just make fun of each other all the time, so it just carries over into the movie. So I respect his royals – I’m pulling for his royals – but we just make fun of each other all the time."
Now, on the movie rosters that have been shown so far, it seems that Falcon and Ant-Man are both on team Cap, joining The Winter Soldier, Agent 13, Hawkeye, and maybe Scarlet Witch (she's not on the posters, but she was in a scene shown at D23 Expo) as they face down the powerhouse team of Iron Man, Vision, War Machine, Black Panther, and Black Widow. But we're hoping Ant-Man and Falcon get to tangle one more time, at least in some kind of training exercise.
Oh, and ten points to Mackie for the "grows" pun referring to Ant-Man, whether he meant it or not.
