So we all know that Sam Wilson is the new Captain America. But do we really know the man they call The Falcon? Looks like it's time to better know an Avenger and dig into Mr. Wilson's history.
While the first 25 episodes of Hero Blend focused solely largely on superhero adaptations both at the movies and on television, this week we’re going back to the source. Marvel has made two huge announcements about a couple of their biggest characters, and it has sent a shockwave through the entire comic book-appreciating world.
Anthony Mackie, who plays the Falcon in the movies, would be a GREAT Captain America, and it would be a nice surprise to see him take on the mantle when Chris Evans bows out . But as we mentioned in that original piece, it's probably not likely. And here are the reasons why.
Marvel hasn't come out and said who will don the mantle of Captain America for this new chapter in the hero's saga, which by now dates back seventy-three years. But some outlets believe it will be Sam Wilson, Captain America's fellow Avenger who goes by the name The Falcon.
Question: what happens when the Internet is given free reign to ask Clark Gregg anything they want? Answer: Pretty much everything you'd expect, but much more fun.
Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier only hit theaters last month, so I don’t think anyone was expecting a home release announcement anytime soon. In a surprise move the company dropped the box art and some of the extras for the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital release of The Winter Soldier.
Ever since Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury stepped out of the shadows to tell Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark about The Avengers Initiative, fans of Marvel Studios films have come to expect great post-credits sequences. In the last six years we’ve seen some pretty fantastic ones, from the reveal of Thanos to the discovery of Mjolnir in New Mexico, but the tags in Captain America: The Winter Soldier are really two of the best we’ve seen yet.
Back in 2009, Samuel L. Jackson made headlines when he signed an unprecedented deal with Marvel Studios that would see him play the role of S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nicholas J. Fury in not one, not two but nine different movies. It was a pretty big surprise at the time, but it turns out that Jackson wasn't the only actor Marvel signed a nine picture deal with. Sebastian Stan is in that exclusive club as well.
Comic book movie fans have spent months and months wondering what Marvel Studios has planned for the upcoming Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe outside of Edgar Wright's upcoming Ant-Man, and today that picture has become a bit clearer. It's now being reported that the studio is now in the process of putting together plans for a Captain America 3, and according to their sources that includes bringing back directors Joe and Anthony Russo.
Of course, you could blame sites like ours, who dedicatedly share whatever we can find out about new movies with you. But really, you're to blame too because of course you click the links to these stories. It's supply and demand, and its drive is insatiable.
Are you ready to assemble with Marvel’s The Avengers? Graphic artist Adam Levermore is. He went ahead and created a series of patriotic, WWII-inspired “recruitment” one-sheets for each of the main Avengers heroes, from Captain America to Thor and Iron Man.
The first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is here! Did you see it yet? OK, click the link and go take care of that first. Because we're about to dig pretty deep into this thing
The new Cap pics from The Winter Soldier give us a tremendous shot of Captain America’s new costume, which has a darker tone (more black than Navy blue). They also show part of the fantastic elevator sequence that Marvel showed fans in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con in July.
When firemen in Milton, VW arrived at the scene of a house fire they discovered two men—one dressed as Batman, the other as Captain America—beat them there. John Buckland (Batman) and Troy Marcum (Captain America) were appearing nearby at an American Legion Post event for children as part of their “Hero 4 Higher” business.
So you thought Chris Evans was the first guy to bring Captain America to life onscreen? Then you're not giving proper credit to Dick Purcell, my friend. Superheroes on screen may feel like a modern phenomenon, and they're definitely more profitable now than they've ever been, but the first time a Marvel superhero was captured on film was way back in 1944, when Captain America starred in his own 15-chapter serial film.
