Good news, Marvel fans!
Not only is Avengers: Age of Ultron edging ever closer to our screens - just two weeks to go, now! - but the steady stream of Marvel awesomeness that seems set to accompany our wait has delivered up something fantastic: Our first look at Anthony Mackie, a.k.a. The Falcon, in Age of Ultron.
Which, for everyone who watched Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and promptly fell for Mackie's note-perfect take on the hero, is pretty much indisputably good news.
Especially since, from the looks of it, it seemingly confirms he's set to appear in at least one major scene...
Yup. Not only is that a picture of Falcon meeting Iron Man (likely for the first time), but that also looks a heck of a lot like it's part of that party scene.
Specifically, that one.
The even better part, though?
There are a whole lot more:
Images That Confirm Things We Already Knew Were Going to Happen (But That Are Awesome Anyway)
Ultron and Klaw, Sitting in a Tree, P.L.O.T.T.I.N.G.
Because...villainy loves company?
Don Cheadle, Being Awesome
Because War Machine.
Baron Von Strucker, Looking Dastardly
Because...monocles indicate evil?
Joss Whedon Did, Indeed, Direct the Movie...
...And Chris Evans Sure Is In It
James Spader Looks Awesome in a Hat
Because of course he does.
Cap Rides a Motorcycle
Because Cap always rides a motorcycle.
Ultron Likes Looming
Because he's a homicidal robot killing machine, presumably.
The Big Three Are Very Large
Black Widow Looks Bad-Ass
Because of course she freakin' is.
And, of course:
The Avengers Are a Team
For now, at any rate...
What do you think, though?
