It appears that the character Sam Wilson (aka The Falcon) may have a brief cameo in Marvel’s Avengers movie. Actor Jason George is said to be cast.
A source remaining anonymous because they were not authorized to speak on the matter, says that Wilson will not appear as the Falcon, but as a S.H.I.E.L.D. operative. The appearance is brief, but could lay the groundwork for a role in either the Captain America sequel or other another Marvel movie franchise.
Jason George currently stars in the new TV show Off The Map. I don’t want to read too much into anything, but Off The Map is on ABC, which is owned by Disney, which owns Marvel…George has also recently been a recurring character on two other ABC shows: Grey’s Anatomy and Eli Stone.
As far as I’m concerned, this is still in the rumor category folks. Nobody is going to be confirming anything anytime soon, but the sources seem solid so…who knows.
