*** Spoilers – Seriously Spoilers… this one just gives it away. ***
I'm glad I made that Ant-Man specific spoiler image last summer.
Okay, there has been a rumor that an Avenger appears in Ant-Man even so much as to which Avenger. Well, the new international TV spot Marvel released just shows us that Avenger, so the cat is out of the bag. You can watch the spot and see who it is for yourself… around the 17 second mark… or you can turn back now and be surprised. I'll talk about the appearance below the video.
Ir you are reading this part then you watched the video and know which Avenger it is. From what I've been hearing, Scott Lang and his crew need something to help them pull off the main heist and when they go after it, they are confronted by The Falcon. This meeting is important because it leads to a rumored scene in Captain America: Civil War where Cap needs help on something but doesn't want to call in Iron Man and Falcon says he knows a guy… enter Ant-Man.
I think Falcon was the perfect character to bring in here. Anthony Mackie's humor matches the films tone and solidly connects Ant-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Plus the Falcon hasn't gotten nearly enough screen time.
