    Not necessarily.
    The Air National Guard/VA Hospital thing comes directly from the leaked script, so it isn't some rumor or speculation. The scene where Sam reveals this is where he and Cap meet for the very first time. So most likely, he *is* in the ANG, also working the VA, when he meets and befriends Steve, who then pulls some strings to get him hired on to SHIELD.

    The concept art shows a set of some kind of high-tech wings and we've seen the jet pack on set so I'm guessing he'll be propelled by the pack and he'll maneuver with the artificial wings. Im ruling out the glider idea since they'd be fixed in one position where in the art you see the wings can articulate.

    Yeah, I'm betting on "hard light" wings that are projected from the backpack.

    :woot: Funny that he won't actually talk to reporters, as if Marvel has its snipers ready to fire if the cast says too much about the movie.

    I havent been following this film much, so I was very suprised today when I saw The Falcon in the concept art.

    VERY cool. Like Wanda and Pietro, another character I never thought Id see coming to life.

    Also agree this will be Falcon Begins, with the character getting a reddish/brown costume upgrade in future appearances.

    I don't want his classic 616 costume in full, it's just goofy looking. However, a combination of the 616 and TWS costume could be cool.

    I don't know whether Falcon is going to be played as a bird fanatic in this film or not, but if so, the idea for a funny little scene popped into my mind the other day.

    So Cap has met Sam jogging in the park, right? And they talk for a bit, right? So at one point, they stop by a pond in the park, and Sam, talking about how much he loves birds, and how birds are people too, points to a duck floating on the pond and says "See that duck? I named him Howard." Which gets him a befuddled look from Steve.

    Mackie and the Russo Bros. have said they're going more for the Ultimate version of Falcon in which he's a soldier-turned-hero. They did so because it would create a bond between Steve and Sam that makes it believable they'd be teamed up together.

    I really want to see a real pic from the film of him with his wings in flight and not just a production art.

    If they don't want to make Redwing an actual bird, then they could make it some kind of remote powered drone that's shaped like a bird.

    ^ Yeah, I would expect Redwing, sans telepathic connection, being included one way or the other. It's a cool wrinkle I think.

    The teaser will be attached to Thor: TDW, so it should be out by mid to late October.

    I hope we see Falcon and Hawkeye interact one day so that we get a Hurt Locker reunion

    If falcon's wings aren't weaponized, I hope he gets to use a gun.

    He's already been shown using guns while flying in some of the set shots.
