I had the chance to speak with the actor yesterday at the Captain America: The Winter Soldier junket, and I had to ask whether or not he will be appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The actor revealed in February that he has been actively asking the powers that be at Marvel whether or not The Falcon will soar again, but he still hasn't gotten a straight answer from anyone yet, including producer Kevin Feige and Chris Evans. And now, with shooting to start in three weeks, it actually looks pretty bleak for the actor.
Take a look at what he had to say:
Of course, it's possible that Marvel calls at the last minute and brings him back, but, for the time being, don't get your hopes up to see The Falcon in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Stay tuned for my full interview with Anthony Mackie for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as we near closer to its April 4 release date.
Avengers: Age of Ultron comes to theaters May 1st, 2015 and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Elizabeth Olsen, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.
