Captain America 2 is starting to fall into place, as the casting process is underway...

Over the weekend, it was revealed that Captain America 2 is no more. Instead, it's now known as Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with a summer 2014 release date long earmarked.

Chris Evans will, of course, be reprising the title role (and he's locked in for several more appearances after that), with Joe and Anthony Russo directing the new film. It's part of Marvel's 'phase two' of movies, building up towards The Avengers 2.

And the first piece of new casting news has appeared. Anthony Mackie, it's being reported, is in talks for a role in the film. That role, while unconfirmed, is widely believed to be The Falcon. The Falcon is another superhero, with a history of working alongside Captain America. Further details are sketchy at the moment, but it sounds an intriguing addition to the movie's story.

This hasn't been confirmed, of course, but when we hear more, we'll let you know...
