    Here's a joke example:

    Wilson and Rumlow fight happened almost entirely offscreen. BECAUSE MARVEL IS RACIST!

    JK.

    Hey I love Falcon and all, but it ain't his movie. Nothing racist about it. He was a strong character.

    The military ought to start having red combat pants. If Mackie wore such things and a white T-shirt, he would've been in the same colour scheme as his comic version.

    He did. It's especially clear in the first scene. Widow doesn't rebuff him. It's subtle though. They don't really talk after that though. I wasn't watching Mackie for any physical cues after that though. It just seemed like he saw Widow and was like "ooo, hot chick" and she was like "yeah, I'm hot *wink*" and drove off.

    Mackie did really REALLY good, too bad he's not in Avengers 2. :(

    I originally didn't want falcon in A2. But this film and Mackie totally sold me on the character. I'd love to have him on the team

    I've been a fan of Mackie's for a while now, loving just about everything I've seen him in, but wow, the dude nailed it out of the park.

    In a movie already so full of incredible characters/scenes, this guy just rocketed (heh) to the top of my list of favorite MCU characters, alongside Cap and Loki. Every single scene he had, Mackie was able to be charismatic, ultra likable, and really heroic.

    I honestly can't wait to see more of him.

    Too bad we can't petition to get Mackie on the AOU.

    I've never been a big fan of the Falcon character...I don't DISlike him, he's just not one of my favorites. But, Mackie nailed the role, and is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors. He left me wanting to see more of the Falcon...can't wait for 2016!

    I think they could've incorporated Red Wing in this movie. It could've been some kind of AI drone or something Falcon controlled remotely. He could've sent it off to either shoot at other SHIELD targets or to distract those missiles when they were on his tail. Perhaps Stark could give him an upgrade and Red Wing would function similarly to how Tony controlled all those other armours in IM3 "telepathically".

    On another note, did Falcon ever wear the bulky fatigues we saw in the early set photos? I don't recall seeing him dressed like that in the final cut of the movie. He just had the T-shirt and combat fatigues under the backpack. I don't recall seeing him wrapped up on top like in those photos unless I missed that somehow. Did they change it in the end?

    I loved Falcon throughout the whole movie. Part of me wished that Hawkeye was in the film, but if that meant he would have taken Falcon's screen time, then no way, Jose.

    He was fantastic in this movie. He was a badass, funny, and surprisingly insightful. Oh and the flight harness looked amazing in the action scenes. The running "left" jokes was especially funny. Seriously Whedon, put him in AOU. I don't care how you do it, just do it.

    I was a little disappointed in his flight scenes. Based on reviews, they sounded cool but it wasn't that different from what we see in Iron Man.

    I found them to be more versatile and graceful than when IM flies, but that's a personal opinion.

    i totally agree with this if stark had control over all those amours they could have freaking gave him a robot hawk or something! how coolwould it had been when the wings popped open the drone / hawk came out too! not having Redwing was some bull ^&*but that complaint is minor considering how they handled him! i thought he was great and i totally dug him[BLACKOUT] being a counselor for people at the veterans administration hospital after what he had been through[/BLACKOUT] THAT WAS COOL! ​

    I was never a big falcon fan in the comics (mostly because that costume is awful) but my God he was amazing in this movie it's a crime that he's not in age of ultron

    I loved how he seemed so happy to be Captain America's sidekick.

    Same here, always liked Mackie in movies, but here he was superb, shame we wont see him until Cap 3, but I am sure they have some awesome in store for him.

    Mackie is fantastic in this. I've been a fan of his for years. It's great to see him have a prominent role in a big budget film. Falcon was not only a well written character, but also a well acted character.

    Falcon was SO freaking good! A lot of times a movie introduce a new character and tell you he/she is cool. Then they come off as annoying. Acting, screenwriting, direction all came together to make him amazing. It really was something else to see that happen.
