The Falcon gets the call for Avengers: Age of Ultron

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.



The Avengers: a review by The All Action No Plot Movie Club

Ok, The Avengers has just finished, and The All Action No Plot Movie Club has gathered in the local pub to discuss and review, just for you…

Sarah Bricknall, “Who doesn’t love an action movie where the entire movie theatre is laughing! If you miss it, you’ll miss out on a fantastic movie!”

Chris Halton, “Very funny! Black Widow knows how to manipulate men!”

Johnny Wilkinson, “Edgar Wright was correct, I spent most of the movie with a big smile on my face.”

Peter Wreford, “As good as the X-Men which was awesome! Funnier than I expected.”

Chee-Yan Hiew, “I thought there were some nice comedic touches in there, especially when the guy was caught playing Galaga.”

Positive early signs from the world première of The Avengers

Yes, the world première of the Avengers has just screened in LA, and whilst currently there is a ban on all ‘proper’ reviews, already Twitter is abuzz with tweets from those who attended.

Thanks to /Film (who actually attended the premiere themselves), we’ve been able to get some clues as to what we might expect in a couple of weeks. Amongst those tweeting were Seth Green and Edgar Wright, and the unanimous view was a very positive one.

Edgar Wright tweeted, “The Avengers’ is a big tub of popcorn heaven. A huge grin on my face throughout and much applause from the crowd too. Well done Mr. Whedon.”

Seth Green said, “So that was AMAZING. Like, double plus awesome. Thank you Joss Whedon for giving us all the #Avengers movie we deserve. #OnlyYou”

I’m pretty stoked about the response. Got my tickets booked for the opening night on the 25th April here in Melbourne. Can’t wait now.
