Filming starts March 13, 2012.
Chris Evans is back as Captain America and Anthony Mackie is casted as Falcon.
Oh yeah, that's right. I forgot about that fact. I mean they already had a crazy cast and the character development was lacking. There were too many iconic figures on one screen that it would've been a stretch to add another set of fly-fighting sequences. I mean the whole thing was already pretty much iron-man focused, as narcissistic as Stark is, that it would've been Iron-man 2.5 had War Machine joined the fight.
So yeah, going by that it would actually be better to leave him out.
Speaking of Falcon, anyone know his backstory or origin? I can see them pulling a Bourne Legacy with the whole "you weren't the only one" thing.
Haha well hollywood is making a turn towards equality, even if slowly. It probably had more to do with script writing and less to do with race, as Marvel likes to make movies in sequence.
Well you have to look at the comparison between the two characters. War Machine is CRUCIAL to the iron-man plot, whereas Portman...not so much. What is she the world of Thor, the love interest of Thor scientist who tried to re-open that bridge, in spite of Thor finding alternative means.
I assume all of that will be further explained and portrayed in detail regarding the IM3 storyline, as opposed to a few lines of dialogue thrown in.
Same thing happened in TDKR with the Joker, no mention, no flashback. Only in this case it was out of respect for Ledger.
