Edit Your Think Piece: Falcon Isn’t Dying In ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

A hot topic among fans for years now has been around what characters will make it out of Avengers: Infinity War. However, as we saw with Captain America: Civil War, stakes can be raised without a primary character dying. With that said, though, the debate has sparked many think pieces and chat room talk. Adding to the conversation, Anthony Mackie, who plays Falcon, has confirmed that his character won’t die in Infinity War.

“I’ve only read 5 pages – and they were a good 5 pages. But I was alive in those five pages… I ain’t dying. I’ve got that in my contract, you can’t [kill] a brother off. I’m not going to die. I ain’t going nowhere.”

Even if Falcon were to die in the movie, it’s not like the Russo brothers couldn’t find a way to bring him back. As we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, no character is ever truly dead.

Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson, Cobie Smulders, Elizabeth Olson, Jeremy Renner, Sebastian Stan, Peter Dinklage, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Hemsworth, Karen Gillian, Bradley Cooper, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Rudd, Josh Brolin, Paul Bettany, and Mark Ruffalo.

Although no official synopsis has been released at this point, we can safely assume that Avengers: Infinity War will follow a story that includes Thanos, with the Infinity Gauntlet, taking on the Avengers. A more detailed plot summary will be released as the film’s release date nears.
