CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Uses Minimal CGI, Says 'Falcon' Actor Anthony Mackie

It's hard to believe The Avengers came out over a year ago. I mean it feels like just yesterday I was lining up in my 'Captain America' costume with high expectations for the Marvel team-up. Part of The Avengers' beauty was the use of CGI, well it looks as if the direct follow up to last year's box office hit, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will not feature as much CGI as many fans were expecting. While this certainly doesn't surprise me, as everything we've seen for the film thus far has been very practical and very 'gritty', it does surprise me. MTV caught up with star of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie who will don some tights of his own when he soars to the sky as 'The Falcon'; The actor reveals some details regarding the use of CGI and the film itself.
"The Russos, what they did that was so great was, they wanted to stay with live action, which is a dying art form," Mackie said. "If they can build it, they built it. If we could do it, we did it. They wanted to do as little CGI as possible. That's why the movie looks so great." Mackie then discussed his most terrifying experience on set of any movie to date, "The worst experience, they put me up 100 feet in the air and are like 'Okay, you're in a parachute and you jumped out of a plane.' So I'm like, okay, I've jumped out of a plane a few times, so I know when I'm free falling  I wiggle," he said. "Literally, they put you in slow motion, and you're just wiggling all the way down. Then they're like, 'Don't wiggle.' It's very hard to do real stuff in slow motion and not look weird."
Are you looking forward to next year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier? The film is set to hit theatres April 4th, 2014.
