To most, it seemed like a normal day in New York City but to Steve Rogers and Sharon Carter, they knew better. They walked the busy streets as normal as ever, their eyes locked on the world around them as if they were simple tourists, but they were really looking for three HYDRA agents whose next step in a diabolical plan was going to get thousands killed.
One of the reasons Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favorite Marvel film is because it introduced Falcon to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sam Wilson a.k.a Falcon is so ridiculously cool. He was a great dude, his superhero identity was downright amazing, and every time he has appeared in a Marvel movie I get so happy. So, today on the two week mark until Avengers: Infinity War I’m celebrating his evolution since his debut four years ago. Enjoy!
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Before I saw these Marvel films I didn’t know anything about these superheroes. In fact, the only Marvel superhero I knew was Spider-Man so when Sam Wilson appeared in The Winter Soldier I didn’t know who he was or the fact that he was going to become a superhero. I just thought he was this ex-soldier who managed to befriend Captain America. So imagine my surprise when I found out he was Falcon, this super cool superhero. It was such an AWESOME surprise and it really made the film that much more enjoyable. And I’m so glad Sam’s involvement only increased.
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Falcon barely made more than a cameo appearance in Age of Ultron but it was a worthy cameo, as he got a bit of fun interaction early in the movie with Captain America and then, at the end of the film, he was officially inducted as an Avenger. How incredible is that? But the surprise was the fact that his Falcon suit was transformed for the better in every aspect. The color scheme, the outfit, Falcon truly looked like an Avenger and that was so exciting.
