Anthony Mackie and Common Respond to Black Captain America


The Falcon depicter says the new Captain America is dreams come true, while Common calls it 'a beautiful thing.'

More Hollywood stars react to the announcement of Black Captain America. Anthony Mackie, who plays Sam Wilson a.k.a. Falcon in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", and rapper Common are among those weighing in on the news.

Both applaud Marvel for pushing for more diversity in their superhero characters. "Dreams do come true!!! It's only the ComicBook, but it's still amazing!" Mackie gushed on Twitter.

Common said to TMZ, "It's a beautiful thing," in response to the changes in Marvel comic books that include a female Thor. "It's the way the world is. The diversity in comic books is just showing where we are as people. I think we gotta see superheroes in diversity so we all know we're all together."

The new Captain America will be introduced in the first issue in November. Sam Falcon replaces Steve Rogers and will be a part of new "Avengers NOW!" initiative.
