Marvel Studios released "Captain America: The Winter Soldier to financial and critical success this past April, and one of the most frequently praised aspects of the film was Anthony Mackie's portrayal of The Falcon. It's a performance that preceded a larger role for the character in Marvel's comics, with Sam Wilson set to take on the role of Cap in the upcoming "All-New Captain America" series.

With "Winter Soldier" coming soon to home release, one of the extras is set to profile Mackie and his portrayal of The Falcon -- and CBR has an exclusive early preview of the "Cut the Check" featurette, including co-director Joe Russo and series lead Chris Evans both providing insight.

"He's just got such a gregarious nature, and so full of energy," Evans says in the clip. "He just breathes life into his environments."

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" will be available on digital download Aug. 19, and on DVD and Blu-ray Sept. 9.
