He isn't a sidekick...
In an interview with MTV, Anthony Mackie spoke some about The Falcon's relationship with Captain America in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and expressed emphatically that Falcon is not Cap's sidekick.
He said: "It's interesting because a lot of people equate it to Batman and Robin, but the reality of it is it's more of a working relationship, a respect relationship as opposed to a leader and follower."
He said he was initially told he'd be the second lead in the film, which went to Black Widow. He added: "They sold me that I was the second lead in the movie, so there's a point where Cap gets hurt, and [I] do everything for Cap. And I get the script, and... that's not true. I get hurt, not Cap!"
