After the success of his appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie has joined the cast for the big one.
He will reprise his role as The Falcon in Joss Whedon’s upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, due to hit screens next year.
The story goes that he had to wait a while before learning the news, and had spent some time bugging his good friend Chris Evans (Captain America) to tell home whether he was in or not. Well, eventually the call came and all’s good.
The Falcon was definitely one of the main highlights for me of the altogether excellent Captain America sequel earlier this year, and I’m thrilled to see him back for the main event!
The Avengers: Age of Ultron has a UK release date of 24th April 2015, and a US release date of 1st May 2015.
