Is Falcon set to become Captain America in Civil War? Anthony Mackie unleashes a cryptic tweet…

March 19th, 2015 by Marc Comments


So Anthony Mackie tweeted an image earlier today of him surrounded by Captain America and the Mighty Avengers comics and the message “got free time at work… which do I read first?”

Now, not that someone as obviously cool as Mackie reading some comics on work downtime is news, but what IS news is what the image is actually saying. Or seems to be.

Firstly, does this mean that Captain America: Civil war is filming already? And secondly, what got our attention was the imagine at the front of the pile of comics, right in front of his face, which clearly shows Mackie’s character, Falcon, in the Captain Amercia outfit.

Now, could this be coincidence? Of course, but remember, Marvel don’t do anything by mistake when it comes to things like this… so read into it what you will.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
