The Falcon Will Be In The Captain America Sequel!

It's hard to believe that not only did we get a fairly decent Avengers film this year, but now we're going to see The Falcon in the Captain America (2012) sequel.

The only way this could be better is if the film was going to be set in the 1970s.

As I grew up on that Jack Kirby run near the Bicentennial, it's hard for me to think of The Falcon and not think of that era

Still, Anthony Mackie looks like he could make a decent modern-day Sam Wilson (The Falcon) and I'm optimistic that this will be handled correctly.

Apart from Halle Berry's sometimes-dreadful Storm in the X-Men films, this is, quite possibly, the highest profile black superhero to hit the screen so far.

I'm still waiting for the Black Panther to join the on-screen Marvel Universe.

One day.
