This post is part of the Age of Ultron Aftermath series.

So, you’ve seen Avengers: Age of Ultron six times, and you’re wondering, ‘what does this mean for my favourite character?’. In this series of articles, we’re going to take a look at where each character has been left, and use what we already know, as well as some speculation, to discuss what the end of Age of Ultron means for each of the Avengers. Needless to say, spoilers ahead for Age of Ultron.

Age of Ultron – What Does it Mean For Falcon?

Despite the fact that he’s barley in the film (a small role in one scene and one shot near the end), Falcon ends Age of Ultron in a very different place to where he started it. When he first turns up he tells Captain America that he doesn’t really want to be an Avenger. At the end of the film, apparently against his wishes, he’s one of the new Avengers. Congratulation to Sam Wilson!

Something else he says is that he’s quite happy chasing up cold leads. This is more than likely a reference to him looking for The Winter Soldier, which is where his character left off at the end of the second Captain America film, and is presumably what he’s been doing since then.

As one of the new Avengers team members, it’s likely that we’ll be seeing Falcon again, sooner rather than later. The most likely place that he’ll be turning up is in Captain America: Civil War, as that seems to be where most characters will be returning before the next full on Avengers film. With that set to be an adaptation of the Civil War story from the comics, it seems unlikely that his search for The Winter Soldier will get much more screen time than it did in Age of Ultron. Then again, this search could play a big part in the film, or even open with the new team finding him for the first time.

Age of Ultron – What Does it Mean For Falcon?

Something that’s happened recently in the comics is that Sam Wilson (aka Falcon) has taken on the mantle of Captain America. While I don’t see this happening for a while yet, there is a chance that Steve Rogers will die at the end of Civil War (as he does in the comics), which would leave the red white and blue shield up for grabs. Also worth mentioning is the fact that The Winter Soldier has also taken on the Captain America mantle before, so Marvel aren’t short of replacements…

What do you think is next for Falcon? Did we miss anything? Share your thoughts in the comments.
