Falcon Won’t Become Cap In ‘Captain America 3’

Anthony Mackie The Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Marvel Comics has made a few changes to their characters in the past few weeks. It first started out with revealing that Thor will be a woman. Series writer Jason Aaron emphasized, “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.” Then it was announced that The Falcon would become the new Captain America. While these changes show how progressive the comic book giant can be, there was a lot of speculation on how the changes would impact the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially since many of the actors’ contracts will expire after The Avengers 3.

It would make sense to make these changes in the films to coincide with the changes in comics. But, wait just one moment. Like any adaptation, the films don’t always follow their source materials to the letter, and screenwriters and directors are always taking creative liberties with these comic book properties. That’s why Captain America 3 scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely say that we shouldn’t expect to see Falcon become Captain America in the next sequel, but they don’t want fans to give up hope on the idea either. Hit the jump for more.

What better way for geeks to celebrate this national holiday than to kick back with a few cold ones and watch the personification of the USA in the Marvel Universe: Captain America: The First Avenger.

And honestly, good ol’ Cap is more important in Marvel than you think. Sure, he leads The Avengers; but Marvel’s most popular heroes, such as Spider-Man, Wolverine, Deadpool, and now Iron Man thanks to Robert Downey Jr., tend to eclipse the important responsibility Captain America has played to the evolution of the Marvel Universe.

Captain America is the personification, not of the United States, but instead for which it stands. I’m not talking about liberty or justice or freedom or patriotism. I’m speaking about people – it’s the people that make this nation so special. And Cap personifies that element, that deep down, we all have the potential to be good people; and that it is not our abilities that make us who we are, but the choices we make.
