CAPTAIN AMERICA Gets A New (Probably) Flying Friend; THE AVENGERS 2 Expecting Twins?!

Here’s the newest photo of Anthony Mackie as the Falcon  (thanks to our friends at Newsarama.com) in Captain America: The Winter Soldier – in cinemas April 4, 2014 – and it really looks like he’s going to be based on the Ultimate version of the high-flying African hero. The lack of wings most likely means that he’ll have them post-CGI. The REAL question here is whether or not he’ll have his trusty pal Redwing flying around with him.

In other news, ComicBookMovie.com reports that the newest issue of EW features Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover, and also (somewhat) confirms the recent rumor that mutant superheroes Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will be added to The Avengers 2‘s roster. Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige remains tight-lipped on the topic, though, stating that he is “[neither] confirming [nor] denying. The draft could change six months from now.”  Honestly, at this point we’d really rather get Ant-Man and Wasp, but the possibility of a “Cap’s Kooky Quartet” sequence with Pietro and Wanda joining Hawkeye and Captain America on perhaps a stealth/reconnaissance mission excites us, too!

Here’s a look at the Iron Man 3-themed EW cover:

How do you feel about the Falcon in Cap 2? Would you rather see other Avengers such as Black Panther or Ms Marvel in the sequel? Drop us a line in the Comments section – it’s absolutely free, and we won’t bite! (Most of the time, anyway!)
