Fan favorite Marvel actor Anthony Mackie stopped by to chat with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show and, naturally, questions of Avengers: Endgame arose.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters this April and it will answer many questions that fans had at the end of last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, the biggest of all being if and how the heroes that died during Thanos’ (Josh Brolin) snap would return from beyond the grave. Fans know that Tom Holland’s Peter Parker will live to fight again in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which also features Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, who also died at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.
One of the other many fan-favorite Marvel heroes that bit the dust at the end of Avengers: Infinity War was Anthony Mackie’s Falcon, who joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. During a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon, Anthony Mackie confirmed that Falcon is dead in the MCU. When Fallon asked about Falcon and his status after Avengers: Infinity War, Mackie had this to say:
“Obviously, if you didn’t see part three, spoiler alert, I died. A lot of people died.”

Although it hasn’t been confirmed that Falcon will return in Avengers: Endgame, the character is rumored to be headlining his own Marvel series on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service alongside Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
