Falcon to Appear in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

Yesterday the official Avengers twitter account tweeted out the new poster for the forthcoming second film in the series. As a poster, it’s not super surprising. There are a bunch of white dudes front and center (two of them named Chris), Black Widow is contorted in a weird position, and Samuel L. Jackson is put in the corner. I’ve embedded the tweet and image below:


One thing though that has jumped out to a lot of people is a tiny detail, barely discernible at this resolution. In the list of people involved with the film, a particular name is squeezed in:

If you couldn’t tell, that name is Anthony Mackie. Anthony Mackie, of course, is best known to Marvel fans as the actor who played Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. So Falcon may not end up an Avenger in this film, but it looks like he at least gets to show up.

And we here at Nerd & Tie think that’s pretty cool.

Episode 26 – Incompetence, Not Malice

On this installment of the podcast, we discuss the DashCon fiasco, the Awesome Con conundrum, and the hopes of the Nezumi Con Indiegogo campaign.

We also talk about the changes coming to Marvel comics with different characters taking up the helms of Thor and Captain America, Arrowverse casting, Harmony Gold not being awful for once, Homestar Runner coming back from the dead, and the expansion of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.

It’s exciting.
