|Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) - Captain America (Chris Evans) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie)|
Marvel has released five new Captain America: The Winter Soldier posters, but one character is conspicuously absent. There are six posters in total featuring shots of Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Falcon/Sam Wilson , played by Anthony Mackie, is nowhere to be found. Why?
UPDATE: Added a fan poster I made for Falcon
Here are the posters for the film Marvel has released.
Before you say Falcon's just a supporting actor, then you should check out the credits in the poster. Mackie gets third billing after Scarlett Johansson and Sebastian Stan.
"second lead" in the film and he's being treated like a cameo.
If you watch the trailers there's another unusual pattern I've noticed. The Super Bowl commercial is full of great images of Falcon, but in all the trailers for the movie he only has two lines. He says, "When do we start?" and "How do we know the good guys from the bad guys?
So why doesn't Falcon get a poster? What is Marvel afraid of?
Captain America 2 has a release date of April 4, 2014 (USA).
What do you think? Why isn't Anthony Mackie in the posters? Should Falcon get more marketing attention?
