(and Sam, before you repeat your argument to me, I KNOW that Falcon is featured in some current Avengers stuff. I still don't think that matters )
But who is to say that movie Falcon will be a second stringer. Are movie Black Widow and Hawkeye such A-listers? They certainly aren't really A-listers in the comics on the level of Iron Man, Cap, Thor and Hulk, yet they are in the movie. Since Anthony Mackie is playing Falcon in Cap 2, what makes him really any different to BW appearing in Iron Man 2, or Hawkeye's small cameo in Thor? As far as the general audience will perceive him, he could easily be just as big a name as those 2.
