He's a big part of the CAPTAIN AMERICA storyline, period. Has been, for decades. He's like Steve's Rhodey....and that's probably where some minor grumbling will come in: "Yeah, another black sidekick instead of a full-on superhero. Figures."
But Falcon was a given for the Cap movie, just like Sharon Carter (can't wait to hear the casting for her role....). And Mackie is a GREAT addition to the cast. Plus, I'm willing to bet that Falcon will HERO UP!!! to the Avengers even before War Machine does....even though both belong on the team.
