Re: Anthony Mackie in talks to play Falcon
Who wouldn't want Pym (in whatever frickin' incarnation), Wasp or BP on the Avengers over Falcon? I don't think anyone (in this thread or otherwise) was arguing that.
The point is Falcon *can* be introduced in A2, which I would not be opposed to. Both from the perspective of adding diversity and expanding a roster to include Falcon's pretty cool powerset.
Ant-Man and Wasp will be introduced in Phase 3, and hopefully, BP will get a Phase 3 movie too. Introducing characters of the magnitude of Pym/BP into an Avengers film without a 'proper' solo introduction would be weak, IMO.
The order in which the characters added to the Avengers roster is irrelevant to me.
